Markus Molitor's Phenomenal 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. I highly recommend stocking up!

Stephan Reinhardt, April 2017


The 2015 Riesling Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett (Green Capsule) opens with stunningly clear and aromatic mirabelle fruit intermixed with smoky/stone aromas. Full-bodied, intense and juicy, with a good mineral grip and a certain power, this Kabinett was bottled with 10.5% alcohol, so one percent more than the other feinherb Kabinett bottlings.

October 2016


This offers a brilliant floral nose of cassis, vineyard peach and fine spices. The wine starts off on the smooth and intense side on the palate but a touch of zesty acidity freshens up the aromatics and livens up the ample but hugely satisfying finish and powerful after-taste.

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.
