Wine Advocate 95
The 2016 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spätlese is very clear and nicely reductive on the flinty and limey nose. Lush, round and very elegant on the palate, this is a beautifully mineral and complex Sonnenuhr with a long and intensely aromatic but always refined and refreshing mineral finish. This is a fabulous Spätlese from the Juffer.
James Suckling 92
Very youthful and elegant with a beautiful interplay of aromas (white peach, tropical fruit and vanilla), restrained sweetness, bright acidity and mineral freshness. Drink any time during the next decade.
Wine Enthusiast 92
Intense aromas of dusty slate and flint show prominently but there's also plenty of ripe, penetrating yellow-peach and nectarine flavors waiting to burst through. High toned acidity and a fine, filigreed texture mark the midpalate. It's a complex, faceted wine that should meld further from 2021–2030.
