2017 Markus Molitor Urziger Würzgarten Riesling Auslese *** Goldkapsel Mosel

SKU #1458718 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) is a very intense and concentrated yet pure and fruity Auslese provided with refreshing crunchy, herbal and iron-rich, clayey slate aromas. This displays perfect botrytis on a bright, pure, fresh and delicate bouquet full of ripe stone and citrus fruits as well as notes of crushed stones. It is fascinatingly fresh and salty-piquant on the palate, with pronounced acidity; this is a sweet but weightless Auslese with acidity that cuts through fruit and slate and tickles the tongue. This is a highly stimulating and crystalline Auslese that is impossible to spit out. Simply amazing! (SR)  (6/2019)

94 points Vinous

 It’s already evident on the nose that this bottling offers astonishing fresh-fruit concentration for a Riesling of BA must weight, specifically of grapefruit, lime and strawberry, which are wreathed in a greenhouse-like aura of flowers and foliage. Oily and rich in the mouth yet animatingly bright, it finishes with blazing penetration, mouthwateringly salt-tinged and lent invigoration by nips of crystallized ginger. (DS)  (1/2020)

K&L Notes

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 135 18. The 2017er Ürziger Würzgarten Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) proves quite restrained at first and only gradually reveals some beautiful scents of smoke, tangerine, apricot, bergamot, raspberry and whipped cream. Intensely exotic and honeyed fruits give the wine quite some sweet presence on the palate. This rich version of Auslese *** will only reveal all its qualities in a decade (if not more)." (Jean Fisch and David Rayer, 10/2018)
