Von Buhl has been making remarkable Pfalz wines, supped by statesman and royalty alike, for the last 170 years. German Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck chose the estate’s Riesling to toast the 1869 opening of the Suez Canal. Indeed, this wine's name comes from Bismarck’s exclamation on tasting the 1873 vintage: “Ungeheuerlich gut!” – “Monstrously good!” The estate is blessed with exceptional vineyards – eight Grands Crus and six Premiers Crus. So good in fact, head of Bollinger Matthieu Kauffman gave up his prestigious post there to make wine at Von Buhl. Ungeheuer's basalt, sand and clay soils are hugely complex and lend terrific minerality and zip to this great Riesling, while exceptionally low yields ensures intensity. Superb to cellar.
