Wine Advocate 95 points - Picked out shortly before the corresponding Kabinett and Spatlese, Kuhn’s 2011 Oestricher Lenchen Riesling Auslese is in another league of quality: Heliotrope and rowan contribute perfume so heady it nearly bowled me over. Behind that, come aromatic intimations of the pear nectar, pineapple in syrup, quince and apricot preserves laced with lemon and lime that dominate a nectarous palate. Nut paste suffusion and saliva-liberating salinity add to the palate-saturating richness. At the same time bright and energetic, this elixir’s huge load of sugar is balanced with almost electrically efficacious acidity, leading to a finish of astounding purity, interactive complexity and penetration. If it were a Mosel, this would likely be described as “long gold capsule” in style. Regrettably - as it seems to me - there are a mere 150 liters of this. “Oh, we could have harvested more like it,” reports Kuhn nonchalantly, “but we didn’t need more.” And that’s being said about a wine he sells for a mere 21 Euros per half bottle! Look for it to remain exciting through at least 2040.  (Apr 2014)

The winery was founded by Jacobus Kuhn in 1786. Today, Peter Jakob represents the eleventh generation of winemakers in the family. The Kuhns organically cultivate 18 hectares of land spread throughout the town of Oestrich applying biodynamic methods. The vineyards are planted on natural south-facing slopes along the Right Bank of the Rhein at an altitude of 70 meters, and are well protected against the cool borealis by the foothills of the Taunus Mountains. A member of the VDP, an exclusive organization of the top 200 growers in Germany dedicated to quality production of indigenous variety, Peter Jakob Kuhn is at the forefront of winemaking today in Germany. Greatly treasured by the German public, his wines are very sought after for their expression of terroir. These are hand-worked wines that count among the best in Rheingau and in all of Germany.
