Lobenberg: Strahlend wie eine Prümsche Auslese Goldkapsel, dazu feinstes Salz, mehr salzig schiefrige Mineralität und burgundisch feiner Schliff. Dazwischen die explosive Zitrus-Grapefruit-Frische des Ultrajahrgangs 2015. Das ist ganz vorne. 100/100
-- Parker: The 2015 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) shows a perfectly ripe, concentrated but fresh and elegant fruit aroma intertwined with mineral and refreshing grapefruit flavors of crushed stones, perfect botrytis and still fresh, healthy berries. Rich, round, dense and piquant, this is a highly finessed and very elegant, sweet, lush and intense Wehlener Sonnenuhr with a super clear, precise and salty, stimulatingly pure and piquant finish with a lot of grip and tension. This is a skyrocketing Auslese that will fly over your palate over decades if only you give it the time it deserves. Its acidity is finer than that of the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, which makes the Wehelner more sweet, lush and round. It is the nearest to perfection of the sweet Ausleses at this early moment, and it will surely never step back from this level. 99/100
-- Mosel Fine Wines: This stunner of a wine offers a ravishingly airy and silky nose of yellow fruits, grapefruit, pear and spices. The wine is delicately oily yet aromatically incredibly precise as raisin, date and spices emerge on the palate. The finish, far from being cloying, proves airy, elegant and hugely persistent. This is a great slightly powerful BA-styled wine in the making! 95-97/100 2030-2055+
-- galloni: ear preserves and apple jelly are allied to bright fresh lemon and lime in this 'three-star' performance. The palate presence is creamy in texture and almost custardy in its richness and underlying extract, yet at the same time buoyant and electrically charged with citricity. The flavors begin heading in a confitured and confectionary direction but are then restrained by high acidity. The alternation of creaminess and brightness, honeyed richness and citricity continues through a lusciously lingering finish in which a hint of caramel serves as a further, delightfully integrated botrytis marker. This is another of those embryonic Molitor 2015s that will need time to display their mettle, but it already conveys amazing concentration and persistence, not to mention a remarkable sense of energy. 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.
