STEFAN MULLER KRETTNACHER EUCHARIUSBERG AUSLESE RIESLING 2017
94 points - Jean Fisch and David Rayer - Mosel Fine Wines - "The 2017er Krettnacher Euchariusberg Auslese was harvested directly on the vine at 94° Oechsle in the privileged Gross Schock part of the vineyard. This still proves rather discreet on the nose as it only gradually reveals gorgeous elements of coconut, vineyard peach, fresh pineapple, pear and even a hint of star fruit, all wrapped into some reductive smoky elements. The wine develops the stunning lightness of a Joh. Jos. Prüm Auslese on the palate and leaves a gorgeously playful feel in the long finish. Despite some exotic elements coming from the partially botrytized grapes, this remains above all a beautifully airy Auslese. We would be hard pressed to argue against anyone calling this a Spätlese. It is that intense and yet light-footed. It does need some rest in order for the touch of hardness of the acidity to mellow away. But what a great success! 2027-2047. "
