95 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "From very chalky soil at 280 meters in altitude, the 2017 Nieder-Flörsheim Frauenberg Riesling GG is ripe, very fine and complex on the elegant and flinty nose. Full-bodied and intense on the concentrated and juicy palate, this is a very complex and persistent, highly elegant and intense Frauenberg with lingering salinity and crystalline mineral grip on the finish. Impressive and still very young. A long-distance runner. Tasted at the domaine in March 2020. Drink: 2023-2040. (May 2020)"
93 points David Schildknecht (Vinous): "Scents of sea breeze and lemon peel waft from the glass. The palpable sense of high extract that this wine shares with so many in the present collection is here allied to an almost custardy sense of creamy richness. Yet that richness is accompanied by bright, juicy fresh lemon and lime. This is also another Battenfeld-Spanier bottling that – as anticipated on the nose – exhibits intriguing, mouthwatering marine elements, suggesting seaweed, mussel stock and brine. Thanks to persistent juiciness, the superbly sustained finish is far from austere, even as it leaves an impression of mineral matter that you might think you’ll have to scrub to remove. After I tasted this, Carolin Gillot repeated her familiar refrain that the Battenfeld-Spanier Grosse Gewächse – and above all the Frauenberg that Spanier likes to refer to as Steinwein – need at least a couple of years in bottle to really show their stuff. Drink: 2019-2030. (Jul 2019)"
93 points Falstaff Guide: "Closed nose with mineral, citrus aromas and stone fruit. Following aeration menthol and lime notes appear. A phenolic-rich palate which is taut, full of structure and still quite young. Enormous tension, incisive acidity, athletic construction. Will age magnificently, needs time. (11/23/18)"
