Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: The 2016 Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Auslese *** (White Capsule) opens with very clear, super fine, precise and delicate yet deep, intense and concentrated fruit intertwined with just a hint of noble oak leaf notes. Full-bodied, fresh and very dense in its mineral structure, packed with mocha and nougat flavors, this is an elegant, highly vital and complex Himmelreich—by far the best dry Riesling I have ever tasted from this vineyard. Molitor's parcel is the steep part behind the Josephshof where the vines were planted in 1990. The soil is pretty stony, but there is also fine earth. The 2016 was fermented in a 2,000-liter oak vat plus a 225-liter barrique. The wine reveals enormous finesse and salinity and is spectacular in its purity and refreshing tension. This is so saliva-inducing that I tried to spit it four times—and failed four times. I tasted the wine three times in 14 days from the same bottle in March 2018. The second and third encounter showed a much fruitier, more classic Himmelreich style. The wine is the perfect expression of ripeness, elegance, finesse and freshness. Its finish is much (!) longer, more tensioned, salty and vibrantly fresh than any other wine I have ever had from this steep grand cru between Wehlen and Graach. Molitor's parcel is located pretty high (straight next to his Pinot Noir plot); the vines are "only" 26 years old, but the trunks are as big as if they were much older. - Stephan Reinhardt, März 18

96 / 100

Mosel Fine Wines: This immediately catches one’s attention as delicately spicy elements give way to subtly multi-layered scents of candied grapefruit, tangerine, cassis and violet on the nose. The wine shows stunning lightness on the palate, yet is packed with complexity, intensity and freshness. It develops great presence and depth in the hugely long and superbly delineated finish. This is a mind-blowingly good dry Riesling in the making! 2021-2036 - Okt. 17
