An incredible wine with tons of potential but so closed at the moment. Bone dry, laser acidity with a s***load of power but never heavy. Super long finish. Dark, deep and mysterious. Like Pechstein always is.
Mathieu Kaufmann, the cellar master of von Buhl told us to let this Baby sleep for ten years. But then it will blow your mind. I'm 100% sure. Buhl did an amazing job in the last years after the big "change" in the winery. This Pechstein is the perfect proof. Well done!

Wine was ripping on this night at Frasca. Hovering right between youth and age. Perfect balance.

My favorite Forst vineyard. Such a great bottle, drinks itself. Punchy, thick, brawny, saline, but oh so acid. 12.5%. The Von Buhl cellars were hauntingly beautiful, candlelit like some otherworldly vampiric,
antique resting place.

Pfaltz is sooooo underrated. Expressive from start to finish.

Bone dry, starting to gain weight and complexity. Tried it next to a '15 and the difference was very evident. Some maybe lychee notes, minerality and very good acidity. Will keep getting better.

Seems several years younger than it is. Very dry. Flavors and aromas of tart peach, yellow apple, white flower, wet stone, with just the faintest touch of smoke and petroleum. Very long finish. The 2008 Forster Pechstein from Von Buhl is an outstanding wine, and it will outlive us all.
