Wine Advocate on MARKUS MOLITOR


Molitor’s Auslesen are absolutely world class Rieslings and worth any effort to find at least some bottles of these stunning beauties.

Markus Molitor's Epic 2015 Vintage

2015 was a high maintenance yet ultimately impeccable vintage for Markus Molitor. The hot and dry German summer was followed by an early autumn that saw a heavy onslaught of rain with continued warm temperatures. Fortunately, Mother Nature relented--unlike the curve ball rainfall of 2014--and eased up on precipitation towards the end of harvest. According to Molitor, this vintage required more sorting than ever before, and his meticulous adherence to top-shelf winemaking is evident in this lineup of 2015s. Beautiful concentration and powerful aromatics are the hallmark of this vintage.

Stephan Reinhardt, February 2017

The 2015 Riesling Alte Reben (formerly known as Alte Reben Mosel) is an old vine selection from crus in Zeltingen, Wehlen and Erden. The wine combines ripe and concentrated Riesling flavors with the typical slate aroma of the Mosel. Highly elegant, with perfectly ripe and balanced fruit and a juicy-piquant, finesse-full finish, this is a picture book dry Mosel Riesling with a lingering salty finish.

Wine Advocate, April 2017

The 2015 Riesling Saarburger Rausch Auslese ** (Golden Capsule) displays clear, intense, concentrated and perfectly ripe (stone-) fruit that does not show any hints of botrytis (but a single new barrel) although the grapes were partly botrytised yet perfectly sorted. Rich, round and lush like a Spätlese but finessed and elegant like a top class Auslese, this is an intense and creamy textured Rausch Auslese with an endless flow of very fine Riesling juice intermixed with lemon juice. The acidity is super fine but fresh and vital, and there are even very fine tannins that probably come from the Burgundian pièce that was blended with the 1000-liter stainless steel vat. This is a crystalline Auslese with clear and perfectly ripe fruit and a long, complex finish.
