94 points "Very fragrant, offering floral, lemon custard and mineral aromas and flavors, backed by a lively structure and a creamy texture. This should come together in a few years, creating a harmonious, seductive whole. Best from 2009 through 2025. 37 cases imported." Best 2009-2025

92 points "The 2005 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Auslese offers an aromatic juxtaposition of grapefruit, lime, and pineapple with toasted nuts and a nippy note of botrytis pungency. Tightly compressed and firm on the palate, it blazes in the back end with citrus and honey, underlain by toasted nuts and wet stone. This needs time I suspect to fully express itself and would, I am sure, benefit from aging for two to three decades."
