95 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "Very smoky, this is a seriously concentrated 2018 dry Mosel with stunning minerality and delicate, fresh-pineapple character. Very long, succulent finish that shows uplifting vitality. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (9/16/20)"
93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 37 19. The 2018er Falkenlay GG, as it is referred to on the main part of the label, was fermented spontaneously and aged in traditional oak casks from fruit harvested in a grey-slate infused part of the Marienburg vineyard. It offers a superb nose made of melon, grapefruit, brown sugar, pear, passion fruit, licorice, and herbs. The wine proves intense and coats the palate with quite powerful herbal notes and a hint of camphor. It is slightly round yet multi-layered and leaves an intensely tart feel full of grip in the long finish. 2022-2028. (Oct 2020)"
19/20 points Michael Schmidt (JancisRobinson.com): "There’s a ripeness of yellow fruit on the nose, which seems to clearly reflect the generosity of the 2018 vintage. A rich viscous texture vindicates this theory, but rock-dusty mineral nuances and a phenolic piquancy add plenty of edge. Cool and dry on the finish with a fascinating hint of aniseed. Drinking Window: 2021-2028. (8/25/20)"
