On the palate, this is a clear, fresh, piquant and salty Auslese with remarkable piquancy, grip and mineral tension. The finish is clear and finessed, revealing a firm structure and stimulating purity. However, this Schlossberg needs its time to develop, but it will always be the more dramatic rather than finessed and delicate Riesling. - Stephan Reinhardt

With this "three-star" Auslese, Molitor showcases a parcel of very old, ungrafted vines that have managed to convey the smoky and stony essence of Schlossberg even in a wine dominated by quince jelly, pear nectar, and candied citrus peels and backed by high residual sugar. The palate comes off like a citrus meringue: almost weightlessly airy yet with a suggestion of underlying custardy richness and extract, and possessed of blade-like and electric citricity. The nippy aspects of botrytis never become raw or rough, so that the enormously long finish projects formidable purity of fruit and transparency to mineral notes while leaving the tongue quivering. - David Schildknecht

This has a stunning candied pineapple character, but also great herbal freshness and a very long, pure finish in spite of the intensity. Better from 2020, then good for a couple of decades.
