Fermented and aged for ten months in a 1,150-liter oak barrel from Franz Stockinger, Molitor's 2015 Riesling Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese *** (Green Capsule) opens with a very deep, ripe and concentrated fruit aroma with flinty and yeasty flavors. Rich, round and perfectly balanced on the palate, this is a huge, big, fat, lush and exotic Riesling with an elegance and crystalline finesse that only Mosel Riesling can put against the rich opulence (or better: can lift). The acidity is perfectly integrated, and the wine is incredibly round, lush and intense, with very fine tannins that are a result of the basket pressing. Although it might not meet your expectations of a classic Mosel Riesling, I suppose this will become a legend one day. It is still a bit Burgundian, but this power, intensity and lush, elegant fruit, well... that's 150% Mosel. Let's say, this is a Condrieu-styled Riesling from the Mosel, and it doesn't have to fear any 100-pointer from anywhere in the world. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2030-2050
This very discreetly sweet "three-star" Auslese leads with the same hauntingly buddleia-like floral perfume exhibited by its 2014 counterpart, but free of any botrytis influences. The density and creaminess exhibited on the palate put me in mind of vanilla custard mingled with drippingly ripe white peach and lightly cooked apple. Bittersweet hints of walnut and pecan, along with suggestions of wet stone, lend counterpoint, leading into a buoyant finish of amazing intensity, richness and sheer persistence. Here is a gorgeous, compelling illustration of the unique flavor profile and sensational potential of Zeltinger Sonnenuhr. Jun 2017, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2017-2042
A truly explosive wine. The gigantic ripeness matched by an almost supernatural energy and a breathtaking freshness. And that's the short version of the tasting note. The full story would run many pages! Many decades of potential. Jun 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
