The 2013 Forster Kirchenstück Riesling Trocken GC is outstandingly deep, intense and flinty on the nose, and offers white rather than yellow-fleshed, really concentrated fruits at the moment; you also get the flinty flavors of the basalt stone in this spectacular vineyard. Power, concentration and finesse on the nose are continued on the palate, which is so pure, so elegant, so intense, so incredibly nervous, refined, transparent and salty, that there is no doubt that you have one of the greatest dry white wines on planet wine on your palate. There is so much energy in this wine that the purity has nothing to do with poorness, but freshness and salinity.
David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate #211 (2012): 92/100
The decadence here is by way of faded iris and lily-of-the-valley and the animality by way of mouthwatering urchin roe shading toward a sweet-saline and otherwise mineral savor. Black tea smokiness, bite of white pepper, crushed stone and sizzling lemon rind combine for a piquantly gripping though still also refreshing finish.
Joel B. Payne, Vinous (2013): 92/100
Rich apricot pit, persimmon and pine nuts on the nose. The palate offers a full-bodied papaya flavor that's framed and deepened by a ripe juiciness. This rich, succulent wine if the most ample of all the dry rieslings here. Finishes with excellent length and a hint of lemon oil.

Passion fruit, mango, musk, and very ripe peach scent the Burklin-Wolf’s 2009 Forster Kirchenstuck Riesling trocken GC with site-typical decadence. Suggestions of smoky black tea and peat add further intrigue, and all of these elements convene on a palate of opulent richness (at 13.5% alcohol) but considerable refinement and even a welcome sense of lift that was absent from the corresponding 2008. Hints of white pepper and brown spices offer some finishing contrast to the wine’s sheer sumptuousness.

Lively aromas of white peach and acacia blossom, with a hint of citrus. The ample apricot fruit and polished texture are given definition by an austere minerality that's unusual for this site. Nonetheless, the wine displays provocative depth and excellent length.

Rich herbal aromas of dried apricot, toasted hazelnut and bacon fat. Impressively concentrated, unctuous yellow fruit flavors offer an ideal balance of flesh and juiciness. Harmonious, deep and very long on the aftertaste.
Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (2009): 92/100
Full-bodied and fleshy, yet with a strong mineral component offsetting its peach, apple and citrus notes. There's an appealing juiciness midpalate, before a vein of stone settles in on the finish. Dry and round.

Transparent. Gentle texture and really nice balance. So user friendly! The acid is not too obtrusive. All is in beautiful balance. Maybe it’s surprising that it is already so much fun to drink but I say bravo! Long.
Joel B. Payne, Vinous (2015): 96/100
Ethereal, rich aromas of dried apricot, toasted hazelnut, herbs and bacon fat. Profoundly concentrated and unctuous, with deep, fleshy yellow fruit flavors leavened by an exhilarating juiciness. Impeccably balanced, decidedly elegant and formidably long on the aftertaste, this Riesling showed so much better than it had in its youth. It stood head and shoulders above the competition.
