97 WA / 95 WS

Strawberry-lime chiffon, almost over-ripe Persian melon, pear, banana and salted caramel scent and envelop the palate in Molitor's rich yet delicate 2011 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Auslese three star A.P. 105, which offers along with the veritable fruit salad just adumbrated a nod in the direction of more typically Erden character by way of Chartreuse-like high-toned herbal and floral essences. (That said, this parcel is in fact on the upstream side of Urzig near the Wehlen communal line -Ò so much for my terroir intuitions on this occasion!) There is a pastry-like alliance of buttery and yeasty characteristics here as well that dovetails with faint suggestions of stale bread and white truffle that I take to be manifestations (if not the most usual sort) of botrytis. No Wehlener- or Zeltinger-Sonnenuhr could be any more creamy than this, and the suggestion of salted caramel in the kaleidoscopic finish captivates the salivary glands as well as the heart. I'm enthralled by this wine, and I suspect it will have a similar effect on others who taste it over the next quarter century or more. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate

Sweet and luscious, with concentrated honeyed notes to the ripe apple, baked pear, quince and peach cobbler flavors, revealing nuances of spice. Plush and creamy on the juicy finish, this is pure and seductively rich. Drink now through 2040. - Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator
