The 2015 Riesling Saarburger Rausch Beerenauslese is very concentrated and intense on the nose, with dried dark stone fruit aromas along with spicy and some oaky flavors. Round, super lush and seamless in its highly elegant, finessed and perfectly balanced texture, this BA reveals stunning finesse and vitality on the palate, with great acidity and stimulating salinity in the crystalline finish. This is gorgeously intense and finessed, and the sweetness is carried away by finesse! (SR)
Piquant acidity that could wake the dead. Stunning concentration and enormous citrus freshness at the finish. Very clean and pure in spite of the density and power. Super fresh with decades of aging potential.
A penetrating nose of candied lime and grapefruit peels along with kirsch-laced cherry jam and mango chutney serves as fair warning that the palate will be colorful and tongue-tingling. Remarkably, it also possesses infectiously refreshing primary juiciness, a cooling infusion of mint, and transparency to site-typical smoky and crushed stone impressions. There is an almost custardy sense of density and richness, for all of this elixir’s citric brightness and soaring sense of levity. Nips of cress add to the invigoration of a glowing, electrically charged finish. Time may well reveal this to be even more remarkable than it already appeared to be when I last tasted it from cask. A few more like this and Molitor will be able to rest his case for the prowess of Rausch, something that until now, in my experience, only Zilliken has succeeded in demonstrating. (DS)
