Bollig-Lehnert 2017 Trittenheimer Apotheke Kabinett Riesling (Mosel)  90 points                                      Exuberant lemon perfume is offset by bramble and herbs in this semisweet kabinett. Flavors of lemon candy and white grapefruit are juicy and approachable, balanced by bright acidity and a lingering herbaceousness on the finish. Enjoy now–2023.

Bollig-Lehnert 2017 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling (Mosel)  90 points                               While demure on the nose, hints of lime zest, dried herb and stone lend nuance to punchy grapefruit and lemon flavors here.   It’s a honeyed wine with a clingy mouthfeel offset by zesty acidity. This is a juicy, uncomplicated wine to enjoy now–2021. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

Bollig-Lehnert 2016 Dhroner Hofberger Auslese Riesling (Mosel)   91 Points Cellar Selection                     Savory tones of smoke and crushed earth permeate from nose to finish, suggesting a complex auslese that’s more mineral than fruit. Still, vibrant lemon-lime acidity and silken streaks of honey penetrate the midpalate and extend through a long, invigorating finish. It drinks well now but should show even better from 2021.

Bollig-Lehnert 2016 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling (Mosel)  88 Points

Intense aromas of smoke, crushed earth and pollen permeate through sweet-tart lemon and lime flavors. It’s savory yet invigorating, offering penetrating streaks of acidity that linger through a long finish.

Bollig-Lehnert 2016 Trittenheimer Apotheke Kabinett Riesling (Mosel)  88 Points

Voluptuous, slightly overripe notes of yellow peach, pineapple and red berry are accented by caramel and smoke in this off-dry kabinett. High-toned acidity lends balance to the midpalate leading to a refreshingly mineral finish.

Bollig-Lehnert 2016 Piesporter Kabinett Riesling (Mosel)  88 Points

Initial aromas of smoke and savory dried herb blow off to reveal crisp yellow peach, apple and blossom in this wine. Off-dry in style, it’s crunchy and spry, with a spicy, earthen finish.

Bollig-Lehnert 2015 Trittenheimer Apotheke Auslese Riesling (Mosel)  90 Points

Whiffs of caramel and peach preserve introduce this sweet but elegantly balanced Riesling. Stone fruit and melon flavors are deeply concentrated on the palate, accented by hints of spice and pollen, along with a reverberating spine of acidity. Light footed and finely textured, it’s an excellent value for such a well-made Auslese.

Bollig-Lehnert 2015 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese Riesling (Mosel)    88 Points

Intense smoky, slatey complexities lend an earthy rusticity to this wine’s punchy tangerine and grapefruit flavors. It’s sunny and sweet yet neatly balanced with crisp lemon-lime acidity. Drink now through 2021.

Bollig-Lehnert 2015 Trittenheimer Apotheke Spätlese Riesling (Mosel)  89 Points

Bollig-Lehnert 2015 Piesporter Kabinett Riesling (Mosel)   90 Points

Smoke and flint notes on the nose introduce this energizing Riesling. On the palate, zingy lemon and tangerine flavors are softened by a sweet veil of honey and stone fruit. It’s a slender, fine-footed wine but offers exhilarating refreshment.

Bollig-Lehnert 2015 Trittenheimer Riesling (Mosel)   86 Points

Intensely earthy at first, aeration opens up the nose of this rather savory off-dry Riesling, revealing fresher notes of lemon and lime peels. It’s delicate in concentration, but tart green apple and citrus flavors are zestful.

2014  Bollig-Lehnert  Trittenheimer Apotheke Riesling Kabinett      89 Points
Savory wisps of smoke and dusty minerals juxtapose exuberantly juicy, sweet yellow peach and nectarine flavors in this crystalline kabinett. Just off-dry on the palate, its refreshing, high-spirited style makes it an excellent apéritif.

BOLLIG-LEHNERT Riesling Spätlese, Piesporter Goldtröpfchen 2014

The 2014 Bollig-Lehnert ‚Piesporter Goldtröpfchen‘ Riesling Spätlese is an excellent effort. The Bollig family has been producing wine since the 17th Century, and house their winery on the outskirts of Trittenheim. The wine starts with aromas of Pazzaz apple, Mandarin orange blossom, and crushed wet rock. There are bright flavors of Gala apple, Meyer lemon, blood orange rind, and blue slate. The Riesling has a gorgeous range of flavors and the minerality shows through. This is just an awesome value from Bollig-Lehnert. (Best 2016-2026) – April, 2016 (OB)

Bollig-Lehnert Dhroner Hofberger Riesling 2011 Wine Review   Bollig-Lehnert Dhroner Hofberger 3 Riesling 2011
BOLLIG-LEHNERT Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spätlese 2012

The village of Piesport set on the north bank of the Mosel. At the foot of the Piesporter Goldtröpfchen vineyard in Piesport, a 4th-century AD Roman press house was discovered in 1985. The south facing Piesporter Goldtropchen vineyard has very steep slopes. The soil there is set on slate but has clay-like characteristics when wet. This Spatlase opens with lovely aromas of petrol, white wild flowers, Meyer lemon oil and ripe pear. There are flavors of orange marmalade, red delicious apple, Welches white grape juice and Key lime, alongside a long and lingering finish that coats the tongue. Impressive bottling here that has a refreshing edge, with nice density. The structure will make this one last well beyond a decade. (Best 2016-2028) – February, 2016 (OB)
