  1. Fritz Haag  Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett 2020
    Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett 2020

    Did somebody say aperitif? Effusive white-peach, honeysuckle and vanilla-bean aromas pour from the glass of this Kabinett. A very juicy wine with wonderful lightness and mineral freshness. An ideal partner for conversation. Drink or hold. Screw cap. JAMES SUCKLING, jamessuckling.com

    It offers a beautifully aromatic and ripe yet elegant nose of yellow peach, pear, orange blossom, apricot flower, grapefruit, cardamom, and bergamot. The wine coats the palate with ample juicy and ripe yet fresh yellow fruits and leaves a fresh and nicely zesty feel in the fruity-styled and comparatively light and truly Kabinett-styled finish. This Kabinett proves superbly fruity and, at the same time, beautifully structured. THE MOSEL REPORT

  2. Dr Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Dr Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Still very youthful and unready, but packed with flavour. Beautiful fruit and silky acidity. This is a raw diamond. Drink from 2018 to 2050. (95) STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    Fresh apple, quince preserves and vanilla cream mingle on the nose and the creamy, buoyant palate. Honeysuckle and heliotrope lend seductive inner-mouth perfume. This finishes with a lovely sense of lift and with just enough primary juiciness to remain animating. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Vinous Media

  3. Gunderloch Rothenberg Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Gunderloch Rothenberg Riesling Auslese 2016 375mL
    Lush and exotic in the nose, but oh so racy and brilliant on the palate, this is a stunning Auslese with a mineral finish that is filigree and intense. Best from 2018 through 2040. (95) STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    Made from grapes with 30/40% botrytised berries, the 2016 Rothenberg Riesling Auslese has a clear citrus colour and opens with a bright, fresh and concentrated bouquet of grapefruits, lemons and wet stones. Round and deliciously lush on the palate, this is a mouth-filling, highly elegant, piquant and salty Auslese with nice grip, grapefruit flavors on the aftertaste and pencil wood on the finish. Really stimulating. Very erotic and provided with great aging potential. (Roughly 100 grams of residual sugar.) (94) STEPHAN REINHARDT, The Wine Advocate

  4. Richter Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2018
    Richter Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2018
    Stunning purity of fruit here, ranging from fresh lemons to yuzu to limes and then loads of iron filings and gun flint. The medium sweetness, interlocked with taut citrus and stone fruit, gives an impression of an embellished, intricately woven texture, and there’s loads of density and energy. Very detailed and sleek on the finish. STUART PIGOTT

    From 30- to 40-year-old vines, the 2018 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is flinty, precise and reductive on the coolish nose, with discreet and fine (but lush!) pineapple aromas and very fine notes of crushed, smooth slate. On the palate, this is a clear, fresh, lush, highly finessed, piquant and salty Riesling with very tannins and lingering salinity and piquancy. This is a fabulous Spätlese with piquant finesse and mineral tension that seems to be familiar with that of the Scharzhofberger and the Euchariusberg. I can hardly imagine any better Spätlese from 2018. (96) DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Wine Advocate

  5. Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2017
    Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese 2017
    From the very old part of the vineyard that was planted in 1890 and picked with 15% to 20% clean botrytis, the 2017 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese offers a deep, intense and concentrated yet very clear and elegant bouquet of apricot and mirabelle confiture, orange tea and crushed slate. Round, perfectly balanced and elegant on the palate, this is a very complex, long and mature Wehlener Sonnenuhr with a silky-crystalline texture and a seductive, mouth-filling and persistently salty finish. The botrytis gives texture, concentration and expression as well as a good portion of sensuality. This is where Alsace kisses the Mosel. A gorgeous wine. (95+) STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate

    Selbach Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese* 2016

    The 2016 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese * offers an incredible, gorgeously fine bouquet of weathered slate and perfectly ripe, healthy Riesling berries with just a touch of honey. On the palate, this is a highly finessed and piquant Riesling with great elegance and exotic fruit aromas. The finish is long, piquant and precise, well-structured and firm, but at the same time, it tickles the palate like wine from no other vineyard can do. What an impressive wine!

  7. Robert Weil Kiedricher Riesling Trocken 2018
    Robert Weil Kiedricher Riesling Trocken 2018

    This is a blend of many parcels of younger vines and higher-elevation plantings and it has a very fresh, vibrant and vivid lemon-citrus nose with a succulent, smooth and intense palate. Elegant and very impressive. STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

    From younger vines cultivated from the three crus of the domain plus fruit from the Wasseros, which is located above the Gräfenberg, the 2018 Kiedricher Riesling Trocken displays a bright color and an intense and concentrated bouquet with white fruit aromas and very fine slate and earthy aromas. Round and lush on the palate, this is a well-structured, slightly phenolic and still slightly bitter dry Riesling with a long and firm, very promising and refreshing, salty finish. This is a still a baby but an excellent, tight 2018 Riesling from Kiedrich. STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate

  8. Markus Molitor Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese ** 2019
    Markus Molitor Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Auslese ** 2019
    The yellow-golden 2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese ** (Golden Capsule) is brilliantly clear yet also intense and concentrated on the pure, fresh, finely raisined and herbal (rosemary), slightly honeyed nose that is complex and ambitious. Dense and juicy, with a vivacious purity and great finesse, this is a concentrated, vibrantly fresh and tightly structured Auslese with a remarkably digestible finish. There might be some percentage of botrytis that gives this Auslese a lush texture that is otherwise terribly clear and vital. I'd keep it for at least 7 years and up to 40, if only I could. Attention, though, the wine has serious acidity. STEPHAN REINHARDT

    Ansgar Clusserath Trittenheimer Apotheke Trocken 2019

    Stunning dry Mosel! Great citrusy freshness, but also ripe mini banana and grapefruit, then a lot of mineral power at the wonderfully uplifting finish. Drink or hold. STUART PIGGOT, www.jamessuckling.com

    The 2019 Trittenheimer Apotheke Riesling Trocken is clearly on GG level this year. The wine opens with an intense, pure and flinty bouquet of ripe and juicy lemons, lemon zests and crushed slate. Juicy, piquant and stimulating on the palate, this is an intense and powerful, rich and textured, very attractive dry Riesling from a roughly 100-year-old plot in the center of the cru. It is stimulatingly salty on the grippy finish but always lush and sexy. STEPHEN RHEINHARDT, www.robertparker.com

  10. Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Auslese ** Dry 2019
    Markus Molitor Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Auslese ** Dry 2019
    The lime-green-golden 2019 Bernkasteler Lay Auslese ** (White Capsule) is deep, intense and concentrated yet elegant and still precise and flinty on the nose. The attack on the palate is stunningly young and vital before the elegant and crystalline wine reveals its complexity and inner power. This is a tightly structured, very digestible and still edgy Auslese that needs another 5-6 years or so to settle and shine. This 2019 is enormously salty on the finish and highly promising STEPHAN REINHARDT

    Wagner Stempel Hollberg GG Riesling 2020
    What a stunning nose of ripe white and yellow peach, pineapple and grapefruit with a slew of spicy and herbal notes! But that barely prepares you for the breathtaking interplay of super-mineral acidity and the spectacular fruit. All of this is underlined by wonderful salinity that makes this riesling GG almost supernaturally refreshing. So uplifting at the precise and vibrant finish! From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. 97 points JAMES SUCKLING, jamessuckling.com

  12. Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett 2018
    Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett 2018
    Purple plum is laced with mint on the nose, and those two elements serve for a succulent and subtly cooling effect on the glossy, polished palate. Tangy plum skin, piquant plum pit and a hint of seedy red raspberry serve for invigoration critical to pushing back against unusually high residual sugar, but without diminishing the sense of richness that is engendered on first sip. “I believe some casks would have benefited from fermenting a bit further,” noted Müller, but the fermentations simply petered out. As a result – though, naturally, must weights in the low 90s are also contributory – nearly 60 grams of residual sugar remain in the finished wine. The impressively sustained finish is amply refreshing as well as transparent to smoky and stony nuances. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Vinous

    The 2017 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese ** (Golden Capsule) displays a concentrated yet highly refined bouquet of orange, lemon and grapefruit aromas intermixed with delicate and refreshing slate notes. Lush, piquant and salty on the elegant, pure, even weightless palate, this is a crystalline Auslese with great finesse, grip, tension and highly stimulating salinity. This is a finessed, gorgeous beauty, and it almost makes me fear the other Auslesen listed here. 7.5% alcohol. STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate

    Richter Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Cask 42 2019 375mL
    From a very young and very old part of the cru, the 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** -42- is the pre-selection of the TBA, and the grapes weighed in at 145° Oechsle. The lime- and lemon-tinged, very intense and aromatic bouquet is amazingly fine, fresh and pure on the nose, displaying ripe stone fruit and pineapple aromas intermixed with the flinty and spicy notes of the specific slate soils in the WSU. Based on 70% to 80% botrytis grapes, this is a sweet yet highly refined and piquant Beerenauslese sold as a three-starred or "highly finessed" Auslese. This is a really delicate and promising Sonnenuhr of great class and style, with lingering and stimulating finesse and salinity. Fabulous. (98) STEPHAN REINHARDT

    Egon Muller Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett 2019
    Müller's 2019 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett opens with a bright, ripe and finely slatey bouquet. Round and lush on the palate, this is a medium-bodied, mouth-filling, charming and  balanced Kupp Kabinett with ripe, elegant, crystalline and salty acidity and fine grip on the aromatic, well-structured finish. The 2019 already drinks dangerously well as an aperitif, but it is made to be cellared and then served with food in about 15-20 years. STEPHEN RHEINHARDT, The Wine Advocate

    Eva Fricke Rheingau Riesling Lorcher Shlossberg Spatlese 2018

    Compared with the Kiedricher Klosterberg, this smells a little more floral, less pear and more apricot. Sweeter on the palate, luscious but with a fine stony, crisp lemon freshness. Crystalline persistence, so pure. Definitely tastes sweeter than the Kiedricher Klosterberg Spätlese but perfectly balanced by the fresh acidity. (17+) JULIA HARDING MW

    The 2018 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese is coolish, precise and flinty on the more reductive and lime-scented nose than its Klosterberg sibling. Lush yet crystalline and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a generous, enormously lush and super sexy Spätlese with succulent fruit that covers your palate. There are 90 grams of residual sugar, but there is nothing left but gorgeously ripe Riesling fruit from rocky slate. A fabulous Spätlese bottled with 8% alcohol. Tasted from AP 9 19. You can drink it now, but don't be sad if there is nothing left in 20+ years. STEPHAN REINHARDT, Wine Advocate

    Wagner Stempel Heerkretz GG Riesling 2020
    This is so delightful in the nose, but there are so many dimensions to the aromas that it's not easy to grasp this, without sinking into this enormously complex wine. The aromas range from leaves and flowers, dripping after a tropical downpour, to ripe stone fruit, all the shades of citrus zest and delicate spice Tightly wound on the very concentrated, silky palate with minerality that's almost off the scale. So saline and so mouthwatering at the super-long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. 98 points JAMES SUCKLING, jamessuckling.com

    Koehler Ruprecht Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Auslese Trocken R 2009
    Clear and Baroque on the nose, the 2009 Saumagen Riesling Auslese trocken R starts with peanut brittle and caramel flavors (along with ripe and cooked apples) that lead to a full-bodied and elegant, tension-filled, clear and mineral palate that repeats the sweetish dessert flavors from the nose. However, the wine is pure, really dry, long, lingering salty and aromatically intense. I would decant it for several hours before I serve it but there is no hurry to get it out of your cellar.

    Von Buhl Forster Pechstein Riesling Trocken GG 2016

    Penetratingly pungent and high-toned aromas of peppermint, boxwood and lemon zest cover over any aromatic influence there might be from a relatively new Austrian cask. The feel here is polished and strikingly waxy. Alkaline and saline notes serve for enhanced invigoration and saliva-inducement on a resonant and rich yet refreshingly bright finish. Last tasted from cask shortly before an August 2017 bottling, this wine will have a lot more to say given a bit of time. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, vinous
