2019 Max Ferd. Richter Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Mosel (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1498064 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Plenty of exotic-fruit character from botrytis, but they haven’t made this refined Auslese loud, only more complex and tantalizing. Considerable concentration, but everything fits together so neatly that it comes off as restrained. Very complex, almost dry finish with a hint of vanilla pod. Delicious now, but so much aging potential. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the overripe and botrytized berries of the Spätlese selection, the 2019 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is intense and concentrated on the nose, but due to the sulfuric notes, it is far from being as terroir-driven as the Spätlese or even the Kabinett. The fruit is concentrated yet piquant, fresh and elegant on the palate and pure, refined and subtle on the finish due to the crystalline acidity and finesse that represents the JSU. This is an excellent Spätlese that needs at least a decade to age to its full finesse. (SR) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

Outer quote mark The 2019 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese AP #18 is a beautifully glazed, botrytized wine of great purity and depth. Interestingly, this is about twenty-five percent botrytized bunches this year, with all the rest made out of beautiful golden berries, so it has just a touch less botrytis than the above Auslese. Its technical details are 115º Oechsle, 125 grams per liter of residual sugar and 105 grams per liter of acidity. The bouquet offers up a stunning aromatic combination of lime, kiwi, orange, violets, a fine touch of slate, honeycomb, lilacs and violets. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and creamy on the attack, with a beautiful girdle of acidity, excellent focus and grip and a long, complex and vibrant finish. Fine, fine juice.

K&L Notes

95 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 18 20. The 2019er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese was made from partially botrytized fruit (1/3) picked at 115° Oechsle, and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (125 g/l). It offers a gorgeous nose made of elderflower, cassis, white peach, coconut, almond paste, fresh pineapple, and loads of citrusy and minty elements. The wine proves stunningly tactile and subtle on the palate, where delicately creamy fruits mingle with ripe yet gorgeously juicy acidity. The finish is all about bright exotic fruits, citrusy elements, and fine notes of cream. This gorgeous sweet wine may seem almost irresistible now, but it will gain from a decade of aging as the sweetness will have receded and given way to more nuances." (05/2020)
