  • About this winery

    Weingut Molitor is one of Germany's greatest wine producers. Markus Molitor took over the winery in 1984, at only 20 years of age. He represents the eighth generation of his centuries-old Mosel winemaking family. The estate is centered in the historic town of Bernkastel, with 37 hectares of spectacular vineyards spread across 15 classic sites from Bernkastel and Graach to Wehlen and Zeltingen. This is viticulture at its most extreme, with very old ungrafted vines (many 100 years old or more)...

    Stephan Reinhardt, 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.
