2017 Markus Molitor Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese*** Grüne Kapsel Mosel

SKU #1458733 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. Rich and lush but highly elegant on the palate, this is a precise, finessed, nobly textured and juicy Himmelreich with very fine tannins and a long, complex and elegant finish. This is a nearly perfect, nearly dry Auslese, and the seamless texture makes this highly concentrated and refined Riesling flow down your throat without any effort. Give it air, give it time, give it years! This Auslese just flows. And one day, it will stay in your memories forever. Fabulous. Divine. Unforgettable. (SR)  (6/2019)

92 points Vinous

 Scents of pear, honeysuckle, grapefruit and lime instantly grab one’s attention. The palpably dense yet buoyant palate delivers a wonderfully luscious, cooling, sorbet-like impression of mint-infused quince and pear, while displaying unusually pronounced creaminess for the vintage. An impressively sustained, stone-suffused finish caresses but also refreshes and invigorates thanks to bright, zesty citrus. (DS)  (1/2020)
