90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Egon Müller's 2013 Scharzhof Riesling contains the whole declassified pickings of Le Galais' Wiltinger Braune Kupp, as well as the fruit from younger vines or declassified grapes from the Scharzhofberg. Pale-green as always, the wine opens clear and discreet but ripe, intense, lime-fresh and floral on the nose displaying green apple, Waldmeister and botrytis aromas intertwined with aristocratic slate flavors as subtle as possible. Stunningly dense and full-bodied on the palate, this intense and slightly sweet, elegant, minerally structured and stringent Saar Riesling reveals a remarkable complexity and a good aging potential. In case you can't (or don't want to) afford the sumptuous Scharzhofberger predicates, the 2013 Scharzhof Riesling is a good and potent alternative. (2/2015)
