Marbach Beerenauslese Riesling 2018

Lyle Fass
9.9

First ever Marbach BA, at least to me. Nose is so so pure. Tangelo, grapefruit, white cherries, apricot, earthy, minerals, grape jelly, so much juicy fruit. You can smell the concentration. Spice. Fennel. Pollen. Sickness. More and more with air. Endless complexity. Insane acidity. Wow. Insane concentration and power but wrapped in finesse. This is gorgeous and young. It seems closed but brooding. Gorgeous, refined and pure fruit that is so vivid it shocks you. Huge mineral complexity. So much energy and the acid makes it almost finish like an ethereal Auslese but the power and concentration and epic finish tells you that you are in Beerenauslese world. Endless finish. So so so elegant. This is so genius. This will be better in time but it’s a 9.9 today. Holy shit. This finish is like 3 minutes. After air the nose shows saffron, clean a f botrytis, crystallized sugar. So so sick. — 5 days ago

Developing beautifully after 6 years and can still age another 6+ years. Petrol notes are nicely intertwined with ripe apple, honeysuckle, wet stone and marzipan notes. Fresh juicy acidity and fairly long finish will allow further development. — 15 days ago

Gorgeous nose. Grapefruit. Citrus. Saffron. Clean botrytis. Apricot. Such purity and vividness. Tangelo. Keeps opening and showing more complex and vivid fruit. Leather and smoke and saffron. Palate is so refined and elegant. Like tasting icing on the cake. Insane purity and energy. Rapier like acidity and purity. Amazing inner mouth aromas. Such linearity of flavor. Huge acid. Like wake you up acid and and incredible finish. Finishes incredibly mineral, savory and dry. Such an amazing wine and shows how unique Felsenberg is as a site. — 5 days ago

Sick nose. Genius. Spacious and wide open. Pink grapefruit, floral, herbal, fruit jelly, apricot, vineyard peach, vulcanized rubber, just insane. Palate is genius. Floral and elegant. Juicy and so so long. A bit more closed than the Marbach and Domberg. But has amazing clarity, energy and finesse. Sappy and structured. Long. Salty, sweet, saline and insanely complex. Has 30 years of life ahead of it. — a month ago

Very tight and unyielding upon opening, really needed 12 hours of air to be fully expressive. Rich and deep. Not especially refined nor complex, but delicious at the table. — 4 days ago

This is sick wine. Nose is just amazing. Floral, Rainer cherries, apricot, vineyard peach, sick minerals. Dripping. Amazing purity. Such detail. So so clean. What a nose. Smells like $100 Spatlese. This is special. Ethereal. Omg. What’s a palate. Just insane and electric acidity. Like make you notice acidity. Insane citrus and cherry fruit. Superb electric acidity. Just echos on the palate. A hit of the savory on the mid and finish as well. Really young but just absolutely thrilling drinking. Truly one of the greatest young Spatlese I’ve ever had. A remarkable wine. — a month ago
