96 points James Suckling: "The stunning interplay of Amalfi-lemon character with salty minerality and racy acidity makes this dry riesling both impressive and hard to resist. So much energy drive at the very long, super clean finish. How can a 2017 still be this fresh and vibrant? From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (12/8/20)"

93+ points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Riesling Neuberg comes from the Bollenberg's very warm, east-facing part, which is a potential premier cru. The recent release opens with more of a mineral rather than fruity nose, which indicates the beginning of maturity, but it still has perfectly ripe marille aromas to show. Pure, intense and very mineral on the palate, this is a straight, concentrated and very expressive Riesling that deserves all our patience. Herbal (thyme) aromas populate the tight and salty-mineral finish that indicates a long-distance runner. This is far too young to be enjoyed today. But if you can't avoid it, let it breathe! 13% alcohol. Tasted in May 2020. Drink: 2024-2030. (Oct 2020)"
