95 points James Suckling
"Still very youthful, this is super-elegant with intense slate character. Mini-banana and spring-flower aromas. Very focused on the sleek and silky palate, which you want to linger long over because it lingers long with you at the refined finish. Drinkable now, but best from 2023."

"The 2020er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken GG was made with fruit picked in the Falkenberg part of the vineyard. It offers a subtly creamy and beautifully aromatic nose driven by pear, melon, apricot blossom, whipped cream, smoke, and spices. The wine feels smooth and delicately creamy but remains stunningly light-footed on the palate. Flavors of ripe fruits add to this great sensation of subtle smooth and delicate presence right into the finish. The aftertaste reveals some fresh fruit, a hint of smoke, more creamy elements, and a touch of presence. This is a beautiful even if slightly ampler expression of dry Riesling in the making! 2025-2035."
Vinous Reverie Notes
This comes from the Falkenberg on the banks of the Mosel. The Falkenberg has a very high proportion of blue slate for the Juffer Sonnenuhr, which gives this Grosses Gewachs a very unique character. The wine opens with an intense yet refined and elegant, deep, complex and nuanced nose with very fine flint-stone aromas and precise and elegant Riesling fruit. The palate is immediately round and almost seamless in its texture due to ripe and very fine acidity and lingering salinity. Stunningly round and balanced with a long finish. Will only gain further complexity with bottle age.
