- 91 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE: "From 80-year-old vines in the Layet parcel that was promoted to "VDP Grosse Lage" last year and will be celebrated with a "Grosses Gewächs" from the 2017 vintage, the 2016 Mehringer Alte Reben opens with a very elegant, intense and ripe stone fruit aroma intertwined with lovely spicy notes. Fermented and aged in 1,000-liter fuders made from Palatinate oak, this is a round, very elegant, complex and persistent Riesling with a long, intense and fruity finish. The Mehringer is less reductive and crystalline compared to most of Nik's Rieslings, but it has a full body with fine tannins structuring the juicy fruit. Keep this wine for at least 3 or 4 years. Just 11% alcohol. Tasted from AP 19 17 in March 2018.
(?) "2016 shows all the unique talents of the Mosel and Saar," says Nik. "The wines are elegant, finessed and light, very charming and already appealing. Unfortunately, they will be drunk soon because 2016 does not have the image of age-worthy wines, and our clients can't wait for our 2017s. But I am sure, though, the 2016s will improve over the years.""
