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...

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 Decanter: "This is a lovely weighty Riesling, showing a more noticeable sweetness than the Erdener (despite lower residual sugar of 39.4g/l). It's so appley and juicy at the moment, although you can imagine it opening up in a few years to reveal more complexity. Drinking Window 2019 - 2030. (JB)" (05/2019)

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: "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...

2003 Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Auslese*** Mosel
Back In Stock!
The Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard, which translates to the "spice garden," is so named because of its iron-rich red-slate soil that produces distinctly spicy wines. Very steep and difficult to farm, this vineyard is home to 100-plus-year-old vines on their original rootstock. This spectacular vineyard, coupled with the Christoffel family's four centuries' of winemaking experience, creates majestic Rieslings that last for ages.
Price: $54.99

From the producer: "The Berres family is recorded to have resided and worked in the vineyards of Ürzig since the year 1510. Markus Berres, 21st generation, has taken the helm of this prestigious Mittel Mosel estate beginning with the 2004 vintage, and is in the process of effecting one of the most significant renaissances in recent German wine history. Upon secularization of the Mosel by Napoleon, one of the first great private wine estates to be established was that of Peter Nicolay in Ürzig, including the finest sites in Ürzig, Erden, Wehlen, Graach a...

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...

About this producer: "Situated on Germany’s Mosel River among some of the world’s most treasured vineyards, the Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for more than 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced LOH-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that, with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s top-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class Rieslings. To achieve this, Ernst immediately changed the estate’s vineyard practices to dramatically reduce crop size. He stopped all che...

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...

A small negociant operation, J&H Selbach works closely with a select group of growers who are nearly all under contract allowing them to closely control the winemaking process and ensure quality. According to importer Terry Theise: "Every single one of these wines is sophisticated and has vinosity and most important, moderate residual sugar for the genre."

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...

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...

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...

93pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 09 19. The 2018er Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese was made from partially (40%) botrytized grapes harvested at 105° Oechsle on very old un-grafted vines, and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (109 g/l). It offers a complex nose made of apricot, brown sugar, baked pineapple and herbs. The wine develops some attractive flavors of almond cream, pineapple and coconut on the unctuous yet also comparatively zesty palate. It leaves some nicely complex notes of honeyed almond, pear, pineapple and apricot in t...

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...


Jancis Robinson: "Spritzy palate, crisp citrus sherbet fruit, not exactly honeyed, but the finish has generous ripeness thanks to the residual sugar, which softens the acidity and ties in nicely to the lemon fruit. Freshly squeezed Riesling! Moderate length and no development, but that serves to emphasise the fruit power. (RH)" (07/2019)
Price: $18.99

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...


90pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 06 19. The 2018er Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett was harvested at 83° Oechsle, and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (50 g/l). It offers a comparatively fresh nose of red berry fruits, greengage, apricot blossom, creamy almond and smoky elements. The wine has the juicy and creamy presence of a full-on Spätlese on the nicely playful palate and leaves a mouthwatering feel in the long finish. This may be a Spätlese and not a crispy Kabinett but it is a very nice Spätlese! 2026-2038." (08/2019)

91 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Brauneberger Trocken was not yet bottled at the time of my visit, but will be bottled under a screwcap when the time comes. The final analysis was not yet done for the wine, but Oliver Haag thought it would land right around twelve percent octane. The wine is lovely out of tank, offering up a fine, youthful nose of pink grapefruit, gentle smokiness, a nice touch of wild yeasts, a lovely base of slate, citrus peel and a gentle topnote of Brauneberg’s herb tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and beauti...

Vinous: "Scents of kiwi and pineapple anticipate the pleasantly tangy impression conveyed on an otherwise texturally polished palate. The finish here manages to be at once subtly soothing in its projection of sheer ripeness yet also persistently stimulating and refreshingly juicy. I just wish for something of the mineral dimension exhibited by the corresponding Kabinett to emerge.

2001 Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
New!
94 points Wine Spectator: "Lightweight and focused, with peach, lime and mineral flavors on an open, airy texture. Good underlying acidity drives the long finish. Not a blockbuster, but very pure. (BS)" (03/2003) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Apples, pears, and raspberries burst from the glass of the 2001 Riesling Auslese Wehlener Sonnenuhr. Light to medium-bodied and velvety-textured, this is a thick Riesling packed with red berries. Its plush character leads to a long, expressive finish studded with orange peels, cherries, and tangy limes...

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...

Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 02 18. The 2017er Riesling is made from grapes harvested in the villages of Lieser and Kues. It displays a nice and very attractive aromatics of ripe fruits including apricot, yellow peach, tangerine and candied grapefruit as well as dried spices and smoke. The wine coats the palate with nicely creamy and ripe fruits and leaves one with a very light and fine sense of sweetness nicely wrapped into grapefruit driven acidity in the beautiful persistent finish. Now-2025."

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...

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)


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) Vinous: "In 2017, as usual, the Mönchhof collection features a single Auslese as well as a single bottling from the Prälat, and they are one and the same. Fresh orange and lime mingle with passion fruit and quince jelly on the nose as well as on a creamy, subtly oily palate. The overall impression here is rich and soothing, but without too-dominant sweetness...

95-96 points James Suckling: "Extraordinarily fresh, but it also shows power and depth. The acidity charges through all the richness and puts its mark on this masterpiece at the super clean finish. Drink or hold." (06/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese is clearer and fresher than the dry Grosses Gewächs at this stage. On the palate, this is a bright, salty-piquant and structured Auslese with good concentration, density and lingering salinity. Tasted in March 2019. (SR)" (06/2019) 93 points Wine...


93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Earthen shades of smoke and struck slate mingle into flavors of lime sorbet and crisp nectarine in this sleek, medium-bodied Riesling. Refreshingly dry and briskly concentrated, it’s a bit closed in its youth but should gain greater complexity and mouthfeel from 2022 and improve longer still." (04/2020)

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 points Wine Enthusiast: "Zesty limepith and lemon aromas introduce this filigreed dry Riesling. It’s medium bodied but silky and supple, tangerine flavors. Crushed minerals and a fringe of fresh green herbs accentuate its spry, invigorating feel. It drinks well already but should gain depth and texture from 2022 and improve well through 2030." (04/2020)

Stephan Reinhardt writes: "The course for the next generation has also been set. Christian Vogt (previously Karthäuserhof, Ruwer) is the new cellar master, starting with the 2017 harvest. In order to face the challenges of fungal diseases and other infections, Selbach (vineyard manager: Frank Prüm) is changing over to "gentle pruning" that is reducing the cutting surfaces and respecting the crowns of the vine. By a special pruning technique, a healthier and longer life of the vines can be ensured. Grape varieties such as Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir wer...

Producer's notes: "The Erdener Herrenberg vineyard is situated between the Erdener Treppchen and the Kinheimer Hubertuslay. It is located on the top of the Mosel valley at an altitude of 250-310m NN. The exposure to the wind on the upper part of the valley and the missing shelter by the valley itself forms a bit cooler micro climate. The soil at Erdener Herrenberg consists of 85% grey schist with 15% of finer sediments and is not quite as deep as the soils of the Kinheimer Hubertuslay vineyard. Especially in very warm, low-water years, Riesling wines fro...

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...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Riesling Wehlener Klosterberg Auslese ** (Golden Capsule) is ripe and concentrated on the nose, displaying refreshing lemon and grapefruit aromas intermixed with the purity of crushed slate. Dense and concentrated on the textured palate, this is a lush, elegant and finely racy Auslese that tastes as precise and piquant as an Eiswein. Tasted in April 2019. (SR)" (06/2019) 92 points Vinous: "Though the two sites in question share high elevation and wind exposure, this wine from Molitor’s Left Bank home v...

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...

94 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Domprobst Spätlese AP #5 is far more reserved out of the blocks than the AP #10 version, and this wine will demand some extended bottle age before it really starts to hit on all cylinders. However, the potential here is outstanding and all that is needed is some patience to outwait the inherent structural reserves of the Domprobst. The bouquet is a fine mix of pear, apple, salty slate minerality, bee pollen, petrol and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and very, very precise, with superb cut, a great...

91 points Vinous: "This wine’s personality is alluringly bittersweet, from a nose that features iris and gentian to a finish prominently marked by piquancy of nuts, apple seed and peach kernel. The polished palate is subtly, seductively creamy yet also animatingly juicy and informed by a squeeze of fresh lime, while a suggestion of clam stock adds to the mouthwatering savor of an admirably sustained finish.
