The 2015 Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese ** (Green Capsule) is clear, bright, fresh and flinty on the precise, cool and aromatic nose. The attack on the palate is fresh and piquant before the pure and crystalline texture with all its salts take over the regiment and carries this gorgeous, highly elegant and finessed Auslese into a very long and juicy, in fact endless finish. This is power mixed with purity, finesse and elegance. Great aging potential. - Stephan Reinhardt

Stunning ripeness, but also dark herbal mystery that draws you into its orbit. Long, creamy and super-elegant finish that goes on and on. Better from 2019 and has enormous potential.

Village-typical cherry and lime on the nose transform themselves into a soothingly sorbet-like, rich yet cooling palate presence tinged with mint and laced with drippingly ripe honeydew melon. Don’t be misled by its labeling: this "two-star" Auslese is no less discreet in sweetness than its green-capsule Spätlese or Kabinett counterparts. Stony, smoky and otherwise elusive mineral notes convey intriguing counterpoint on a superbly sustained finish. The wine’s acidity, like its residual sugar, is by no means obvious. But the extent to which the two check one another results in an impeccable balance as well as an animation that puts me in mind of well-wound springs beneath the wine’s surface. - David Schildknecht

This gorgeous Mosel Riesling explodes aromatically with a mineral-driven nose of flint and chalk as well as a fruit medley of lemon-lime, pineapple, apples and white raspberries. The wine’s mineral and fruit profile is complemented by tinges of fresh-cut herbs and a spring flower bouquet. On the palate the wine has a kiss of sweetness but it is restrained and wonderfully balanced. All elements from the nose come across smoothly, and this Auslese delivers on a pleasant, long, mineral and acid-driven finish that will leave your mouth watering for the next sip. Drink this anytime over the next 15+ years.
