96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (Gold Capsule) offers a concentrated and spicy bouquet with notes of tea and lemon chutney. Round and refined on the palate, this is a highly elegant and salty-piquant Auslese with delicate grip and very fine concentration. It tastes concentrated but not that sweet and enormously piquant and salty. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (SR)" (10/2020)
Price: $119.99

92 points Vinous: "Intense aromas and luscious succulence of ripe pear and white peach are wreathed in lily-of-the-valley and tinged with pit and seed piquancy as well as with marzipan and anise. Polish and subtle creaminess add to the midpalate allure of pure-fruited concentration and inner-mouth perfume. The generous finish is soothing and subtly honeyed. Compared with the corresponding Kabinett, the fruit personality here strikes me as less typical of Bernkastel, but the wine’s textural allure and overall richness are reminiscent of many top Rieslings...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Graacher Himmelreich Auslese is clear, fresh and spicy on the deep, concentrated, very fine and flinty as well as vegetal and floral nose. Round and intense on the palate, this is a complex, tight and sustainably salty and refreshing Auslese in the digestible, food-friendly style. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (SR)" (10/2020)
Price: $59.99

94-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Auslese Anrecht offers beautifully deep, ripe and intense tropical fruit on the nose along with spicy slate and discreet honey aromas. Sweet, lush and piquant on the palate, this is an enormously generous, sensual and voluptuous Anrecht with crystalline acidity and a pure, fine and stimulatingly salty finish. Irresistibly elegant and highly digestible! Tasted as a sample in May 2019. (SR)" (06/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This shows great intensity, featuring flavo...

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Christoph Schaefer farms just 10 acres, and half of them are on the steep slate slopes of Graacher Himmelreich. A sunny, protected site, it often makes his most exuberant wine. The party hasn’t started for this vintage yet, but it will. Right now, it’s still got some of the sponti funk from its ambient-yeast fermentation in large barrels; it’s also weighted down with smoky mineral notes and fruit so ripe it edges toward red berries. While it will take a little while in the cellar for the acidity to organize all those flavors in...

John Gilman: "The 2018 Scharzhof QbA was bottled a bit earlier than anything else in the cellars this year, as the mise for this wine was on the last day of February of 2019. The wine carries twenty-eight grams of residual sugar this year and is 10.5 percent alcohol, so it is a bit fuller-bodied in personality than the 2017. However, the wine is lovely in 2018, offering up a classic nose of green apple, petrol, pear, wild yeasts and a fine base of slate minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full and nicely mineral in personality, with good, broad s...

90 points Vinous: "Sourced from a wide array of Pünderich vineyards, only a minority of those in the Marienburg Einzellage, this 11.5% alcohol cuvée offers admirable buoyancy and abundant brightly juicy white peach and lime, as well as transparency on the persistent finish to intriguingly stony, mossy, nutty and ashen nuances. How much more could one ask of an entry-level generic bottling? (This represents the latter of two generic dry Busch Rieslings – the other, which I have not tasted, bearing A.P. #25 – each similarly sourced, but from slightly diffe...

92 points James Suckling: "Beautifully fresh, succulent aromas and flavors of limes and peaches on offer. The palate has a gently creamy and plush feel and a juicy, grapefruit finish. Drink now. Screw cap." (09/2019) K&L Notes: 90 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 07 19. The 2018er Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett was harvested at 88° Oechsle, and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (50 g/l). It offers an ample and delicately ripe nose made of mirabelle, whipped almond cream, earthy spices and smoke. The wine develops the prese...

Vinous: "In past years, wine bottled under this designation represented the sole legally trocken Christoffel offering, but now there are three such. This is a relatively simply affair – as has been the case in past vintages – but it’s appealingly (and, for its vintage, surprisingly) bright, with generously juicy lime and apple picking up stimulation from seed piquancy as well as faint salinity on the refreshing finish. At 12.5% alcohol, the wine is by no means light, but it’s lively. (DS)" (08/2020) K&L Notes: From Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2018er Ürziger...

Dr. Loosen is perhaps the most recognizable name in Mosel wine for U.S. consumers and collectors. This estate has long owned and farmed parcels in the Mosel's most famed and revered vineyards. The 2018 growing season was a warm one, but balance was also achieved across the board in the Loosen lineup. This will be a thrilling early drinking vintage while you wait for some of the more structured vintages to come around. This wine is a strong testament to why the Loosen brand has its reputation for excellence.

97-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is highly refined on the nose and shows delicately aromatic fruit with a nose-tickling minerality of crushed stones and herbs. Round and juicy as well as highly finessed and salty on the palate, this is a fantastic sweet Riesling. It is so fine and filigreed, so delicate and salty that you don't taste any sweetness here—just a dream of the finest Mosel Riesling. This is dangerously good, piquant and tensioned, and you will drink a bottle far too quickly. ...

96 points Vinous: "Heady and head-spinningly diverse floral perfume, nut pastes and pit fruit preserves inform the nose and the luscious, glossy, creamy, delicate palate of this beauty. Nougat and quince jelly are the strongest midpalate impressions. Lime zest and fruit pit serve for welcome, enlivening counterpoint on a finish whose vibrancy and exuberance are amazing, especially from a wine of such sheer overall richness and ripeness as well as such creaminess of texture. Sweetness is prominent, but by no means excessive. The Prüms insisted that this w...

94 points Vinous: "In contrast with this year’s “regular” Himmelreich Auslese, this gold capsule interpretation evokes the citricity that I associate with the site. Headily scented, glossy and lusciously rich, it is at the same time cooling and refreshing, evoking a lime and grapefruit sorbet infused with Chartreuse-like floral and herbal essences. At the same time, quince paste, marzipan and overripe honeydew melon, reinforced by prominent sweetness, weigh in on the confitured, confectionary and decadent side. The impressively persistent finish is sooth...

97 points John Gilman: "This is the only Auslese from the Himmelreich from Christophe Schaefer in 2019 and it is an absolute beauty. The wine offers up just stunningly clean botrytis notes in its aromatic constellation of peach, mango, orange, a nice pull of minerality, honeycomb, lime blossoms and citrus zest. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, very complex and zesty, with a great core, outstanding focus and grip, a lovely girdle of acidity and stunning length on the perfectly balanced and vibrant finish. This is brilliant Auslese! 2029-2085+. " (...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese is coolish and flinty on the slate-dominated nose that reveals an intense but herbal and terroir-driven bouquet. Sweet and finessed on the palate, this is a crystalline, elegant and salty-piquant Spätlese with a still astringently mineral finish. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. Tasting 2018 and 2019 chez JJ Prüm was one of the highlights of my Mosel trip in September. However, I decided to taste the highest predicates only in early 2021 and to focus entirely on Kabi...

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)" ...

94 points James Suckling: "This has a wicked reductive edge now, so either don’t touch this for a long time, or let it open up in the glass (or, yes, decanter!). When it does finally give way, soak up the amazing, stoney nuances, freshly squeezed Japanese plums and Korean pears. Medium-bodied and tightly constructed on the palate, bound by a flinty texture with pointed acidity and crunchy lemon zest. Medium-long on the finish."

95 points James Suckling: "Welcome to the heart of the Mosel! A great floral beauty with an extremely precise balance of delicate fruit sweetness and filigree acidity. Drink or hold." (06/2018) 95 points John Gilman: "The 2016 Wehlener “Sonnenuhr” Spätlese AP #12 was another wine from the vintage that I had a chance to retaste in May at the estate and came away as impressed as I was back in February. The gorgeous nose jumps from the glass in a classic blend of pear, white cherry, orange zest, bee pollen, vanilla bean, a great base of slate, spring flow...

95 points Decanter: "This is full of gunsmoke slate, white pear and gentle pepper, with the sweet hit of late harvest but floating above the palate, saline fresh and surprisingly open at this stage for a wine that you know will age effortlessly for a good few decades or more (we had a 1998 Spätlese that was barely stirring). Salivating and just utterly drinkable. 100% Riesling from steep slopes across five vineyard sites, 90% ungrafted with 10% grafted. Drinking Window 2022 - 2036.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese (AP 08 17) is discreet and smoky on the deep, well-defined nose. Juicy-piquant and salty on the well-structured and refreshingly mineral palate, the Himmelreich is tight and expressive, with the sweetness superbly balanced by the spicy, grippy phenols/minerals. This is a really complex Spätlese that is highly stimulating today and will still be so in 20 or 30 years.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Falkenlay is pure but generously ripe and bright, with matured and super matured apple aromas that are perfectly intertwined with notes of crushed or even milled stones. Full-bodied, intense and generous on the palate, this is a rich and powerful but silky-textured and highly refined Riesling with lots of extract and intensity but also elegance. The finish is dense and compact, with fine tannins intermingled with refreshing minerals that give grip and tension. This is a...

95 points John Gilman: "According to Christophe Schaefer, the 2018 Domprobst Auslese AP #11 has just a tiny touch of botrytis in it, as it has almost exclusively been produced from golden berries. The wine is truly stunning on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet soaring from the glass in a blaze of pear, yellow plum, fresh pineapple, a gorgeous base of slate, citrus blossoms, bee pollen and lilacs. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a lovely core, great backend mineral drive and outstanding complexity and grip on ...

93 points John Gilman: "The 2019 Brauneberg Juffer Riesling Kabinett AP #13 from Max Ferdinand Richter is another truly excellent example of the vintage. The wine is similarly balanced to the Elisenberg Kabinett, though with a touch less acidity, so also a bit less residual sugar to find that perfect inflection point. The residual sugar here is forty-five grams per liter and acidity is nine grams per liter in 2019. The bouquet is pure and vibrant, offering up a classic combination of pear, lime, cress, a lovely base of slate, a wisp of smokiness, dried f...

97 points James Suckling: "This is just beginning to give its best, but it will be even more exciting from 2019! Enormous energy and more than enough richness. The finish turbocharged, so hang onto your hat! Drink or hold." (06/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served from the 375-milliliter bottle, the 2016 Bernkasteler Lay Auslese (Gold Capsule) displays a discreet bouquet that needs its time to open up. It's pretty reductive at this early stage (March 2018). The attack on the palate is racy and fresh, and the wine is filigreed and prec...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) offers a concentrated, super precise and refreshing bouquet of lemon chutney, candied grapefruit zests and spicy slate aromas. What piquancy and precision! It's already sharp as a laser beam on the nose. The palate is concentrated, highly refined and elegant but nervy and salty in the vibrating underground. This Auslese has a seamless texture and reveals great finesse with stimulating salinity and crystal clear, even filigreed structure. This is...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Spätlese is from a single terrace in the Laychen parcel that was picked earlier than the dry Goldtröpfchen. It was vinified in stainless steel and opens with a clear, piquant and flinty nose. This is a gorgeously lush, fresh, pure, crystalline, piquant and persistently salty Goldtröpfchen with a long, stimulating finish. It's lean, sharp as a knife and moderate in alcohol, and the sweetness is well absorbed. It was picked at 89° Oechsle, which leads to a fine, highly sti...

95 points John Gilman: "The 2019 Himmelreich Spätlese AP #8 from the Schaefer family is a really classic and flat out delicious example of its Prädikat level and terroir. The wine comes in at 7.5 percent alcohol and offers up a vibrant, complex bouquet of lime, tangerine, lovely slate minerality, bee pollen, apple blossoms and a topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is crisp, medium-full and succulent on the attack, with a lovely core, fine mineral drive and focus, bright acids and a long, complex and seamlessly balanced, bouncy finish.

91pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 21 20. The 2019er Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett Trocken proves slightly reductive at first, but quickly reveals a superbly attractive and finely aromatic nose of tangerine, pear, yellow peach, candied grapefruit, dried herbs, and smoke. The wine is focused and zesty on the palate, and proves light-weighted and nicely tart, but also a hint richer in the finish (despite the label only indicating 11.5% of alcohol). This dry Riesling needs a few years to integrate its tartness, and will then prove a superb companion for f...

The 2019 Spätlese offers up a beautiful aromatic constellation of pear, orange, vanilla bean, fruit blossoms, slate and a topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is fullish, complex, vibrant and seamlessly balanced, with a lovely core, fine slate undertow, a lovely girdle of acidity and excellent focus and grip on the very long, very pure and dancing finish. One can taste the Indian Summer in this wine. Another...

The bouquet is deep, precise and quite expressive for a young Domprobst, wafting from the glass in a blend of pear, fresh apricot, orange blossoms, slate, incipient notes of honeycomb, violets and a topnote of lime zest. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, complex and perfectly balanced, with bright acids, lovely focus and bo...

2018 Carl Loewen Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Auslese Mosel
New!
96 points James Suckling: "Super fine and fresh for an Auslese with dainty flavors of rose apples and rose water, colored by bright dried lemons and limes. The medium sweetness, though perceptible and deep, is hardly a factor in this wine, as it’s threaded surreptitiously through racy acidity and a bright, lemon-pith texture. Drink now or hold."

Noble on the palate, this is a dense yet subtle, buoyant and piquant Auslese with a highly refined raisin aroma and perfectly balanced sweetness, thanks to its delicately racy acidity and lightness. This is a beautifully digestible Auslese. 7.5% alcohol. Tasted from AP 18 20 in June 2020. 2019 is a great vintage for this tiny icon producer in Graach. Christoph an...

2018 Carl Loewen Maximin Herrenberg "1896" Alte Reben Riesling Trocken (dry) Mosel
New!
97 points James Suckling: " Quite shy at first, but this builds with uncanny speed into explosive yellow fruit and flowers. Mirabelle plums, egg yolk, nectarines, yuzu and citron wax lyrical. Only medium-bodied, dainty and introvert, but this suddenly hits the palate with lightening-struck acidity, triangulating all the delicate, mineral flavors into a sabre-sharp finish, like a pointed telephone mast, channeling the world’s communications into one. Drink now or hold." (09/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator: "A savory and delicate style, with well-integrated passion fruit, apple compote and Key lime pie flavors. Zesty acidity and notes of chive and green herbs give this plenty of snap. Candied mango notes linger on the plush finish. Drink now through 2034." (02/2013) 92 points Vinous: "Pale golden yellow. Lively aromas of peach pit, honeysuckle and candied lemon. Bright and spicy, but with a velvety, creamy texture to its plush papaya fruit. Herbal essences heighten the pleasingly ripe, supple finish.

Lovely now, but pretty intense and could use some time to integrate in order to show its best. Mineral, fruit and floral elements are all present, leading to a long finish marked by Asian spice accents. Best from 2022 through 2037."

Everything is perfectly in place, and the finish is literally breathtaking."

It offers a fascinatingly fine, precise and beautifully flinty bouquet with fine slate aromas. On the palate, this is a delicious, highly refined and elegant Riesling with fine fruit and crystalline/salty notes. The wine has great finesse and grip with lingering salinity.

The 2018er Sonnenuhr Riesling***, as it is referred to on the consumer label, comes from fruit mainly picked on mid-hill terraces planted with old un-grafted vines, and was fermented and aged in a 3 year-old Fuder cask for 10 months. It offers a gorgeous nose made of herbs, a hint of oak influence, spices, and smoke.
