Wine Enthusiast 97
Intensely ripe aromas of pineapple and blossom perfume this exuberantly sweet auslese. It’s a stunningly concentrated, intoxicating wine, laden with sweet honey and stone-fruit flavors balanced by streaks of zippy lime acidity. Fresh and primary now, it is nuanced enough to gain complexity for decades to come.
James Suckling 94
Such succulent peachy fruits and elegant harmony, making it so compelling that you could easily overlook the considerable concentration. A long and silky finish.
John Gilman 93
The 2017 Auslese from the Juffer vineyard here was made with only shriveled berries in this vintage, with no botrytis, and it is a beautiful wine in the making. The lovely nose wafts from the glass in a very refined blend of pear, a touch of yellow plum, bee pollen, gentle notes of mint and moss, citrus zest and a fine base of slate minerality. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and focused, with lovely backend mineral drive, bright, zesty acids and a long, complex and vibrant finish. Classy juice.
