2016 Riesling Erdener Treppchen Spatlese
MAX FERDINAND RICHTER
12 x 750
"Although he's less known to the general public than Ernie Loosen, Dirk Richter spends a great deal of time on the road and thus knows not only what his clients praise but also what they actually like to drink. "The only good bottle is the empty one" might well be the motto of this estate. Since Constantin Richter has come on board, little has changed. But the two men not only make wines that are fun, but also, as the purity of the Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spatlese amply proves, rieslings that I take seriously."
Joel B. Payne, Janvier 2013
After an almost legendary effort in 2015, the Richter dished up another glorious collection in 2016, marked by riper but juicy flavors and great zesty charm. The sweet spot clearly lies in the fruity side of the portfolio in 2016, with a string of outstanding Kabinett, Spätlese and Auslese.
 is yet another stunning collection of wines crafted by young Constantin Richter. While all single-vineyard wines (and especially those made in a fruity-style) are highly recommended, we have to underline the extremely high quality of the Estate’s “basic” wines.
