David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Speaking as I was (see under this year's 'Soil to Soul' coverage) of potentially long-lived residually sweet Stub wines, his 2010 Niersteiner Bruckchen Riesling Kabinett reveals a nearly identical gross chemical analysis to the 'Soil to Soul' blend, though with marginally even higher acidity. Grapefruit, orange, quince, Persian melon, and white peach in succulent, yet almost electrically-charged profusion are palpably underlain with chalk that (at least metaphorically) corresponds to the make-up of this under-appreciated site just south of Nierstein the village. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better example of high-wire balancing or vivacious generosity of fruit even on the Mosel, and I fully expect that this outstanding value will delight for a dozen or more years."
