-- Parker: Golden-yellow in color, the dry 2012 Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Auslese *** (White Capsule) offers a very clear, intense and flinty bouquet with an aristocratic fruit aroma that is still dominated by the flavors of crushed stones. Full-bodied, rich and creamy/elegant, this concentrated and perfectly balanced top Auslese develops enormous complexity and powerful length on the palate, although the alcohol is rather moderate at 12.5%. The finish is complex and very persistent. This 2012 combines richness, power and complexity with great finesse and elegance and is still far away from being at its peak. I'd keep it at least for another 6-10 years. 95+/100
Als der blutjunge Markus Molitor 1984 mit 20 Jahren das Weingut an der Mosel vom Vater übernahm, fing er praktisch bei Null an; ohne jede eigene Anbaufläche. Also harte Maloche auf gepachtetem Rebland.
