91-92 points John Gilman: "There are only two Kabinetten from the Scharzhofberg this year, with an old vine bottling also produced. The “regular” Kabinett (this sobriquet seems rather inappropriate when discussing an Egon Müller wine!) is 9.5 percent in alcohol, carries around fifty grams per liter of residual sugar and has acids of 8.5 grams and very low pH this year. The wine is young and very promising, offering up scents of apple, lime, petrol, slate, wild yeasts and an exotic touch of violet in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, ful...

92 points John Gilman: "We do not see too many Kabinetten bottlings from the Braune Kupp vineyard these days, as this is a lower vineyard down by the river, and therefore really well positioned for botrytis, but in 2018 Egon Müller was able to produce a bit of Kabinetten as well. This is a lovely wine in the making, offering up a very stylish nose of pear, a touch of white cherry, fresh mint, slate, white flowers and a lovely base of slate. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, long and complex, with a fine core of fruit, impressive focus and grip and...

95 points James Suckling: " Resounding clarity of aromas and flavors here with bright lemons, yuzu, white pepper, cloves and orange zest. Immaculately mineral and fine on the medium-bodied palate with driving acidity and deeply cast, citrus and green-fruit flavors. The sweetness is almost an afterthought, but it’s certainly there. Stunning. " (10/2019) 93 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Juffer Auslese has not botrytis in it, as it was made from beautiful golden and shriveled berries this year. The wine is a beauty in the making, offering up a very pure a...

94 points James Suckling: "Almost baroque in its lushness (everything from ripe banana, apricot and cassis), but there's also a firm acidity behind all the extravagance that makes the finish breathtakingly fresh. A powerful wine that is begging for you to pair it with shrimp and chili. The acidity finish is like whiplash. " (07/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Ohligsberger Spätlese is very intense and fruity on the nose, provided with ripe Riesling and wet slate flavors. Round, lush and mouthfilling, this is a beautifully fine, ...

91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Goldtröpfchen Kabinett is attractively reductive yet super precise and clear on the nose where ripe, concentrated white peach aromas are displayed. The palate is ripe, lush and salty-piquant, with lots of gusto and sensual character but also finesse, elegance and precision. There are coolish flinty notes on the nose and palate. This a gorgeous wine with very good length, energy and concentration. From lower, flatter and warmer plots with bigger, less concentrated grapes. Tasted as a sample some days b...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spätlese is very clear and nicely reductive on the flinty and limey nose. Lush, round and very elegant on the palate, this is a beautifully mineral and complex Sonnenuhr with a long and intensely aromatic but always refined and refreshing mineral finish. This is a fabulous Spätlese from the Juffer. (SR)" (04/2018) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "This feels as stony and sculpted as the slope it grows on, a particularly vertiginous section of the south-facing Juffer hillside. It n...

95 points John Gilman: "Oliver Haag’s 2018 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spätlese was clearly one of the finest examples of this Prädikat that I tasted during my ten day visit to the region and I cannot recall ever tasting a better young vintage of Spätlese from this estate! The brilliant bouquet soars from the glass in a youthful blend of lime, pear, gorgeous, very salty slate minerality, violets, bee pollen and an exotic touch of fresh mint in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, laser-like and tensile, with beautiful complexity and filigree, ...

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced from old vines, the 2018 Elisenberger Riesling Spätlese was harvested in the third week of October as the very last "regular" wine (so 3.5 weeks after the Kabinett). It is based on completely healthy fruit and was vinified entirely in traditional fuders. Offering a deep and flinty bouquet, this is a lush, elegant, highly refined and stimulating Spätlese with a salty-piquant finish. Tasted from the cask in March 2019. (SR)" (06/2019) 92 points John Gilman: "The grapes for the Elisenberger Spätlese wer...

94 points John Gilman: "The 1976 Scharzhofberger Spätlese continues to drink beautifully well, and amazingly still has many years of beautiful life ahead of it. Both the nose and the palate have begun to dry a bit at age thirty, and now offer about Kabinett level sweetness, but with all of the haunting complexity and breed that thirty years in the bottle can bring in a wine built to age. The bouquet is a beautiful mélange of lemon curd, baked peaches, new leather, sweet corn, stony minerality and a nice topnote of lavender. On the palate the wine is medi...

92 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Rausch Kabinett was scheduled for bottling on April 1st and was showing beautifully at the time of my visit. The bouquet is already showing some of the classical filigree of this Prädikat level at its best, offering up scents of grapefruit, pear, salty slate, white flowers, a hint of Rausch mossiness and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and complex, with fine mineral drive, excellent focus and grip and the delicate stop on the long finish of a classic example of Kabinett. Fine juice in the m...

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the two oldest plots (80-90 years old and 120 years old), the fuder-fermented 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers great precision and aromas of tropical fruit intertwined with very fine slate on the nose. On the palate, the wine is mouth-filling and salty-piquant, with mango and slate flavors on the racy finish. This is dangerous stuff, very dangerous, yet it's also tight and tensioned. This is, for the moment, the finest and most stimulating Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Dangerous. Really dangerous. T...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese Feinherb Alte Reben has a bright citrus color and offers a clear, intense and very elegant nose with fine slate and herbal aromas that are perfectly intertwined with highly elegant Riesling notes. This is a pretty bright and charming Domprobst that is often rather dark, coolish, flintier and not that delicate. The palate is lush, round and sweet but also fresh and mineral, with tension, piquancy and a lovely salty pull. A gorgeous Domprobst with 11.5% alcohol and 21 o...

96 points James Suckling: "This is so exotic but it is also super clean with a ravishing elegance. A very long and complex finish with enormous minerality. Drink or hold." (06/2018) 92 points John Gilman: "The Maximin Herrenberg vineyard is the lower section, closest to the Mosel River, of the larger Herrenberg vineyard in the village of Longuich. This bottling is made from ungrafted vines planted in 1896, as the name suggests, and is 12.5 percent octane in the 2017 vintage. This section of the vineyard is red slate, rather than the blue slate found in...

96 points James Suckling: "This may still be slightly funky from the wild ferment, but it's a Mosel masterpiece. It’s packed with an entire spectrum of fruits ranging from apples to tropical fruits. Delicate herbal notes, too. The major concentration shows at the extremely long, complex finish. Better from 2019 and with long aging potential. " (06/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Dhroner Hofberg Riesling Spätlese is from a warmer but slatey part of the Hofberg closer to the Mosel and was picked in October (later than the Kabinet...

94 points James Suckling: "The right edge of reductive funk here and a very fresh array of white-nectarine and lime aromas and succulent flavors. Sublime freshness and drinkability here. Screw cap." (04/2019) 92 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Juffer Kabinett had been bottled a couple of weeks ahead of Prowein and was showing very well at the time of my visit. The wine comes in at nine percent alcohol, with 7.7 grams per liter of acidity and forty-five grams of residual sugar this year. The wine is lovely and really quite classical in its Kabinett sensib...

94 points James Suckling: "Slightly funky from the wild ferment, but this also has concentrated peaches and blackcurrants. Coupled with succulent sweetness, this makes a serious statement. Needs some time to open up, but it will be very seductive from 2019. Drink or hold. This has long-term aging potential. " (06/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Goldtröpfchen Spätlese is super clear, bright and fresh on the subtle and elegant nose. This is a lean, highly elegant, firm and grippy, persistent and concentrated Spätlese in the Feinh...

95 points James Suckling: "Slightly funky from the wild ferment but very succulent and racy. Crystalline purity at the super elegant finish, which shows great herbal and mineral complexity. Drink or hold. " (06/2018) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fruit and steel collide in this spine-tingling spätlese. It’s a tantalizing medium-sweet wine offering concentrated white-grapefruit and pineapple flavors, dusted by crushed slate and caramelized sugar. The finish is long and lean, marked by tangs of cool steel and acid. Delightful now but will improve well thro...

91 points Wine Spectator: "A floral version, with minerality adding to the charm of the light texture. Grapefruit, apple and cinnamon flavors mingle nicely in the core, underscored by vibrant acidity. Zesty finish. Drink now through 2030. (AZ)" (04/2019)

95 points James Suckling: "A breathtaking Spätlese! Succulent and vibrant with a bright acidity, carrying the long and super clean finish. Better from 2020, but it shows enormous aging potential. " (06/2018) 93 points John Gilman: "This wine hails from a parcel of one hundred year-old, ungrafted vines in the Laurentiuslay vineyard in Leiwen and was fermented and raised in fuder. The 2017 is twelve percent alcohol and carries eight grams per liter of residual sugar. This is absolutely superb on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet offering up scen...

93 points John Gilman: "The 2017 Juffer Kabinett is also outstanding this year, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of white cherry, lime, a touch of petrol, a fine base of slate, a touch of violet, wild yeasts and just a whisper of the mossiness of Brauneberg on top. On the palate the wine is medium-full, minerality and succulent on the attack, with bright acids, impeccable focus and balance, very good grip and a long, complex and lovely finish. This is not quite as filigreed as the Helden Kabinett this year- that is the nature of the Juffer vineyard...

94 points John Gilman: "I have loved the examples of Wehlener Sonnenuhr that I have tasted from Schloss Lieser since Thomas Haag acquired a small slice in this great terroir, but this 2017 Kabinett may be the most pure and classic expression of this vineyard I have yet tasted from the estate. This magical Kabinett is utterly pure and refined, offering up a complex bouquet of apple, pear, vanilla bean, a touch of petrol, wild yeasts, a beautiful base of grey slate and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, medium-full, pure and preci...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Erdener Treppchen Beerenauslese shows a beautiful nose of white and juicy peaches intermixed with a delicate and crunchy slate aroma. What precision, finesse and purity here! The palate is correspondingly lush, highly refined and endlessly salty, with tickling crystalline acidity. A fabulous, precise and weightless Beerenauslese of great class and style. Tasted at the domain in April 2019.(SR)" (06/2019) K&L Notes: 97 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 151 18. The 2017er Erdener Treppchen Beerenaus...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Spätlese (AP #5) offers a very clear, fine, ripe, floral-scented bouquet of weathered slate and bright, ripe fruits. Sweet yet fine and fresh on the palate, with crystalline and sharp acidity, this is a generous, mouth-filling but very fine and elegant Spätlese with lots of charm and finesse. The finish is very intense, long and salty and reveals a firm mineral structure and tension. Quite sweet. Tasted in June 2019.(SR)" (08/2019) 92 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Braune Kupp Spät...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Mineral-driven, with a lively profile, featuring notes of nectarine, lemon oil, candied orange peel and sweet spice. The acidity is very prominent and cuts the sweetness significantly, leaving a mouthwatering impression on the long finish. (AZ, Web Only-2019)"

91 points James Suckling: "Very minty with some passion fruit. This is a really juicy but rather sleek Auslese with moderate sweetness. It has got a lot of lemon freshness at the finish." (06/2018) K&L Notes: 92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 06 18. The 2017er Erdener Prälat Auslese was made from fruit harvested at 107° Oechsle. It unfolds a fascinating and delicately ripe nose driven by toffee, almond cream, smoke, pineapple, pear, orange blossom, minty herbs and anise. The wine develops the full presence of an Auslese GK on the palate, where intense j...

2017 Markus Molitor Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese White Capsule Mosel
New!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Spätlese (White Capsule) is ripe, nobly intense, refined and harmonious on the perfectly polished, elegant, discreetly flinty nose. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, complex and concentrated but still stimulating and crunchy Riesling with refreshing mineral acidity and a long, well-structured finish with lemon flavors and crystalline salinity. This is doubtlessly grand cru level and belongs to the best dry Rieslings the Mosel has to offer. Keep in mind, though, that there...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Auslese is warm, ripe and cool on the precise nose that displays fascinating flinty notes of crushed wet stones and fresh lemon oil. The palate is lush, round, intense, salty-piquant and well-concentrated thanks to perfectly dry botrytis. The finish is complex, tight, very long and expressive in its firm, mineral character. A great Kupp with a long life ahead. Tasted from AP 7 in June 2019.(SR)" (08/2019) 94 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Auslese from the Braune Kupp is really a lo...

94-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Scharzhofberger Spätlese offers a very fine and delicate, coolish, precise and flinty bouquet with bright and elegant fruit notes. On the palate, this is a finessed, beautifully round and lush yet filigreed Spätlese with sensual, silky-textured fruit and a long, complex, well-structured and salty-piquant finish. A gorgeous classic from the Scharzhofberg. Tasted from AP #6 in June 2019. (SR)" (08/2019) 94 points John Gilman: "This is the only Spätlese from the Scharzhofberg this year and it is a beau...

92-93 points John Gilman: "I failed to write down the AP number on the Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spätlese during my visit, as I was starting to get overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of each wine as it followed on the heels of the one before it. But, the wine is outstanding, offering up a very classic bouquet of delicious apple, pear, lovely mintiness, wild yeasts, slate and a perfumed topnote of lilacs. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, succulent and complex, with ripe, zesty acids, excellent focus and grip and a very long, bouncy and flat out delicious fini...

(SR)" (06/2019) K&L Notes: 91 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 80 18. The 2017er Wehlener Klosterberg Auslese ** (Golden Capsule) delivers a quite smoky...

96 points James Suckling: "One of the best Auslese of the vintage on the Mosel. Great concentration of apricots and brilliant mineral acidity with a touch of sweetness beautifully integrated. The vitality of the finish literally takes your breath away. Drink or hold. " (06/2018) K&L Notes: 93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 15 18. The 2017er Thörnicher Ritsch Auslese was made from fruit harvested at just under 100° Oechsle.

2017 Markus Molitor Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese** Weisse Kapsel Mosel
New!
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Graacher Domprobst Auslese ** (White Capsule) is bright, pure and fresh on the delicately flinty-scented nose with its precise and elegant grapefruit aromas that intermingle with a hint of oak. This Domprobst is already filigreed and super precise on the nose. Lush, round and elegant on the palate, this is a concentrated and tightly woven yet finessed, fresh and salty-piquant Auslese with grip and crystalline structure. One can only vaguely imagine how bright this Domprobst will shine in ten yea...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese is clear and intense on the elegant and flinty nose with its crunchy and refreshing slate aromas. On the palate, this is a brilliant, salty-piquant and mouthwatering Auslese that is light, finessed, complex, tight and tensioned and really pulls forward. A great wine that will taste even better in 50 years, says Johannes Selbach. Tasted in March 2019. (SR)" (06/2019)

93 points James Suckling: "Slightly funky from the wild ferment, but it also has tons of orange blossoms and candied citrus. Powerful and crisp, this wine has nothing whatsoever to do with the category of estate riesling it ostensibly belongs to. Serious concentration and structure here. A long mineral-herbal finish that hits you like a tidal wave. Drink or hold. Screw cap. " (06/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled with 11% alcohol, the 2017 Dhroner Riesling Trocken displays a white-golden color and clear, well-concentrated fruit an...

91 points James Suckling: "Brimming with fresh peach and nectarine aromas. Juicy but also stunningly bright and vivid. Anyone who says that kabinett is easy-drinking needs to try this daring wine! Drink any time during the next 10 years. " (06/2017) Vinous: "Juicy fresh lime and apple dominate the nose as well as a palate whose bright acidity and alcoholic levity are paradoxically allied to subtle creaminess and considerable gloss. Pungent hints of green herbs and orange zest add appeal, and point toward the cuvée’s roughly 50% share of Erden fruit, on...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first three-starred Auslese since 2005 (prior to that, it was 1993, 1983 and 1975), the 2018 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** was picked at about 145° Oechsle. This is incredibly clear, pure, fine and fresh on the lush, concentrated, herbal and grapefruit-scented nose. On the palate, this is a generously lush, refined and salty-piquant Auslese with a tight mineral structure and lingering salinity. This is highly refined and extremely stimulating. It already drinks all too well today, but Constantin rec...

91 points John Gilman: "The 2017 Estate Riesling Kabinett “SL” bottling is also excellent and was a wonderful harbinger of the Kabinett magic that lay just ahead in our lineup. This wine is 8.5 percent alcohol and really quite filigreed for an entry level Kabinett, offering up a pretty and quite esthery bouquet of pear, white cherries, bee pollen, spring flowers, lime zest and a lovely base of salty minerality. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and quite delicate in style, with lovely intensity of flavor, crisp acids and fine closing notes o...

2017 Markus Molitor Saarburger Rausch Riesling Auslese*** Goldkapsel
New!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the Bockstein, the 2017 Riesling Saarburger Rausch Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) is also enormously concentrated on the nose, where fine botrytis aromas intermingle with dried apricots, peaches, notes of quince, lime and lemon chutney and even fig mustard. Concentrated and velvety on the viscous palate, this is a pretty sweet but highly refined and salty-piquant Auslese with an enormously long and concentrated finish. This is a wine to be served in 20 or 30 years, unless you like this bigger but balanced styl...

94 points John Gilman: "The 'regular' bottling of Spätlese from the Rausch vineyard is outstanding in 2018, with a crystal clear personality and outstanding mineral undertow. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a mix of pink grapefruit, fresh pineapple, a hint of mossiness, wild yeast, citrus peel, a fine base of slate and an esthery topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full, vibrant and filigreed, with lovely intensity of flavor, impeccable focus and grip and a long, zesty and very complex finish. Excellent wine. (Drink between ...

2017 Markus Molitor Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Spätlese White Capsule Mosel
New!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Ockfener Bockstein Spätlese (White Capsule) shows a nobly elegant, refined, bright and floral-scented slate bouquet with depth and remarkably fine or subtle intensity. On the palate, this is a finely textured, very elegant, piquant and salty dry Riesling with concentrated, juicy fruit and lingering salinity. It still has lots of ripe lemon flavors but is textured and with remarkable finesse. This dry Spätlese can compete with many so-called "GG" wines and will likely survive most of them. (SR)" ...

On the palate, this is a lush, highly refined and salty Auslese with amazing purity, piquancy, finesse and elegance. The acidity is pronounced but also delicate and gives this very fine Auslese piquancy and precision. (SR)" (06/2019) K&L Notes: 92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP...

New!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Auslese *** (Green Capsule) is intensely yellow in color and, straight from the bottle, still has prominent smoky oak aromas but also highly intense yet refined fruit on the nose as it opens. This aromatic bouquet combines perfectly ripe and concentrated Riesling scents with the crunchy-coolish slate notes of the Himmelreich and, after a couple of days of aeration, adds concentrated lemon zest and pink grapefruit aromas.
