The wine was evaluated in a blind tasting.
The wine was tasted as a barrel sample or before an official test number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer or Staatliche Prüfnummer) was issued.
The wine exhibited a sensory abnormality during our tasting. This does not necessarily have to be a qualitative defect or a wine fault. In the case of a qualitative impairment, a devaluation or rejection was made depending on the type and severity of the defect or wine fault.

Golden yellow. Restrained bouquet with fine notes of tyres and citrus aromas. Elegant on the tongue and surprisingly light-bodied for a Auslese. Not overly complex. Rather one-dimensional. Good length.

Full straw yellow. Broad-shouldered laid out with noticeable botrytis. Hints of peach, concentrated fruit, not quite precise and turned out quite sweet for a fine off-dry Riesling. Very good length.

Amber to mahogany gold. Concentrated botrytis bouquet of dried fruits. On the palate with a slightly bitter attack and restrained sweetness. An old-school Saar Auslese tending towards rusticity. Very good length.

No, this is not a noble sweet wine! Markus Molitor's 2005 Auslese *** from the Erdener Treppchen tastes (almost) dry and with 13.5 % alcohol is anything but a lightweight. In the glass, it shimmers in a greenish golden yellow colour and demands full attention already when perceiving the bouquet. Deep, yet at the same time stimulating floral aromas as well as fine, very clear peach aromas with a subtle ethereal note. On the palate with a powerful, warming attack - here the otherwise not disturbing alcohol stands out a little. After only a few seconds on the tongue, fruit and the typical Treppchen minerality emerge behind the opulence, quite unvarnished. This surprising moment is irritating at first, even causing a certain perplexity. An outstandingly successful synthesis of body and elegance! With some air the fragrance becomes more and more differentiated. Were there hints of soy and curry? One thing is certain: this wine will polarise and will undoubtedly meet with opposition from the chronic non-understanders of such a unique and unusual style. The elegant acidity of the 2005 vintage and the residual sugar, which sensorially emancipates itself from any petty-ideological discussion about its analytical value, are harmoniously integrated. It almost goes without saying that this wine of character, which has its origins in the vineyard, has outstanding length and sustainability. Now already in excellent condition, but still has reserves.

Bright golden green amber. Distinctive caramel nose. Slightly buttery fragrance, with hints of melon and spicy notes that signal the beginning of tertiary ripening. The 15 % alcohol present according to the bottle label is very well integrated. For all its opulence, it is anything but ponderous or satiating. On the tongue with quite present fruit - besides butter, melon also appears again. Balanced and calming. Good balance. Excellent length.

Bright green gold. Fresh bouquet, underpinned by the finest, only slightly buttery roasted aromas and characterised by yellow fruity aromas. Delicate ethereal notes. Overall in the nose rather discreet. With 15 % very strong alcohol, but by no means brandy. On the contrary, the alcohol is very well absorbed and integrated by the existing substance. Ten years after the harvest there is still no recognisable tertiary maturity. Very well balanced, in itself calm. Opulent yet with a certain lightness and finesse. Heavy, but not ponderous. Breathtaking length.

Bright golden yellow with bright reflections. Quiet, unobtrusive fragrance with hints of ripe yellow fruit, banana and tobacco. First signs of firn in the background. Powerful attack on the palate, slightly warming alcohol, soft creamy texture, very moderate acidity, excellent length, long finish.

Clear, greenish straw yellow. Dense nose, dominated by the banana aromas of the 2003 vintage. Also delicately scents of peach, mirabellet and coconut flakes. Despite only 11.5 % alcohol, it has an astonishing power. Creamy, delicate and mineral on the palate. Ripe, balanced fruit. Moderate acidity. Finish marked by the minerality. Long finish.

Bright, bright straw yellow. Complex bouquet, marked by slate minerality, delicate ripe notes and wild aromas with hints of yellow fruit. In the mouth it shows high complexity. Possesses muscles, but lets them play only in secret. Elegance and filigree already suggest its origin in Wehlen or Zeltingen. Fine minerality that persists on the palate. Subtle spiciness. Mature, excellently integrated acidity. Mineral finish, great length. Beginning drinking maturity, great potential.

Golden yellow. Clear, focused, rather quiet scent with delicate hints of apricot and some herbal sugar. Lean, straightforward style of a great classic and cool vintage. Fine slate spice on the palate. Still very vital acidity that forces a draw in the duel with the sweetness. Outstanding length and depth.
