More information on wine critics and ratings

A pure nose of cool slate, limes, white peach and salt is followed by a palate of great balance, intensity and a lovely ripe fruit acidity with focussed notes of fresh pineapple, rock salt and citrus zest, all wrapped up in a wonderfully sleek texture.

In order to promote the reputation of the world famous vineyard locations of "Brauneberger Juffer" and "Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr" even more – even Napoleon counted them amongst the pearls of the Mosel region - Dusemond was renamed Brauneberg in 1925. According to tradition, the 12.2 ha Fritz Haag vineyard, now headed by Oliver Haag, is also known by the name of "Dusemonder Hof".

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2016)
This shows beautiful harmony to the powerful acidity, ripe pear flavors and mineral components. Touches of cream and tarragon are introduced on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029. 300 cases made.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93+ Points (2015)
The 2015 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is still pretty reductive, but very clear and flinty, provided with a ripe and concentrated, very finessed Riesling flavor intertwined with stony aromas. Very finessed and filigreed on the palate, this is a perfectly round, intense, lush and stimulatingly juicy Spätlese of great elegance. The finish is long, lush and intense, and reveals a fine structure.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2015)
Ripe, fleshy peach and mango flavors seem swathed in honey and caramel in this extra-concentrated Spatlese. The richness is balanced by lime acidity and savory yet persistent through a long, slightly sugary finish.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2012)
Subtle floral bouquet, with scents of gooseberry, nut oil and roasted pine nuts. On the palate the creamy papaya fruit is nicely counterpointed by citrus and slate. Finishes with an amalgamation of spices and mineral salts and noteworthy persistence. (JP) (1/2014)
