2017 Dr. Loosen Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Mosel

SKU #1461771 97 points Wine Enthusiast

 It’s hard to choose a favorite among Dr. Loosen’s spectacular lineup of 2017 auslesen but the Gold Capsule stands out for its stalwart intensity. It’s delicate on the nose but preserved yellow-peach and mango flavors are explosive and penetrating. Dustings of earth, saffron and honeycomb lend nuance to the midpalate—a rich and mouthcoating sip that will gain complexity for decades. *Cellar Selection* (AI)  (4/2020)

96-97 points James Suckling

 An enormously rich mango and papaya character. Great concentration and some opulence on the palate. The very long finish is brimming with spices and bitter almonds. Try to be patient because this will develop beautifully. Drink or hold.  (6/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese (Long Gold Capsule) is highly concentrated yet fine, with orange, lemon and grapefruit aromas. Sweet, concentrated and slightly caramelly on the palate, with remarkable purity, acidity and freshness, this is the most vital and tensioned Auslese I have tasted from the Prälat. (SR)  (6/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

 A vibrant but juicy style, sporting mandarin orange notes up front, while flavors of sweetened chamomile tea, peach and cream emerge midpalate. Underneath the sweetness, this reveals a firm structure that provides support. Quite long on the finish.  (2/2020)

K&L Notes

94+ points Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2017er Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese GK was harvested at 115° Oechsle. It proves still comparatively restrained and only gradually reveals some beautiful and subtle scents of fresh pineapple, almond, pear, vineyard peach, and delicately honeyed elements. The wine is beautifully playful on the comparatively slender and focused palate and leaves a nice tension between some citrusy zesty elements and riper almond-infused creamy flavors in the long and lingering finish. This gorgeous Auslese lives from its delicacy. It could well turn into a classic, especially if the zesty and creamy side blend into each other as the wine matures." (1/2018)
