The 2017 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Auslese (Gold Capsule) offers a tropical-scented, highly delicate slate bouquet with perfectly ripe stone fruit and very fine raisin aromas. Lush, precise and filigreed on the beautifully weightless yet intense palate, this is a fascinating, highly delicate and racy-piquant Auslese with a persistent salty-mineral structure, great finesse and expression. This is a spell-binding beauty to drink in the next four or five decades. Tasted in March and April 2019. Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

A prickly, high-toned nose features mirabelle and quince in jellied and distilled form, mingled with lemon zest and radish. Honey, caramel and marzipan slick the palate, where the fruit exhibits a desiccated sense of concentration, reflecting the shriveled as well as botrytized nature of the grapes that informed this rich elixir. The finish is a bit dominantly sweet – despite analytically high acidity – but impressively sustained. David Schildknecht, Vinous
