95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "Long-time fans of the two flagship Spätlesen from the Dönnhoff family are going to have a lot of fun over the coming decades debating the relative merits of these two brilliant wines from 2018! The Brücke Spätlese offers up a brilliant bouquet of apple, passion fruit, tangerine, fruit blossoms, salty slate minerality and a topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is medium-full, very pure and precise, with a great core, dancing acids and a very long, complex and filigreed finish. This has bottomless depth and is extremely light on its feet. 2023-2075. (Mar/Apr 2019)"

94 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "This is a decadent sweet wine with bright dried peaches, white truffle and light honey. Tropical fruit, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered with beautiful intensity and richness. Sweet finish. (12/16/19)"

94 points David Schildknecht (Vinous): "White peach, quince and red raspberry give an impression on the nose and the creamy, polished palate of both jellied and fresh fruits. An influx of lime serves for welcome, animating brightness, and the penetratingly sustained, mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish is transparent to wet stone, setting up a shimmering fruit–mineral exchange. Drink: 2020-2038. (Jun 2020)"

93+ points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Spätlese is very intense and aromatic on the dense and voluptuous nose. Lush and creamy on the palate, this is a generous and dense, lush and persistent Brücke Spätlese with remarkable freshness and piquancy. It's pretty straight and piquant, with remarkable finesse and mineral tension. Tasted in July 2019. Drink: 2024-2040. (Oct 2019)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "Focused, structured and precise, this shows a slight hint of peach yogurt before pear, almond, honey and citrus flavors chime in. Features wonderful intensity. Needs some time to integrate but suggests a promising future. Best from 2022 through 2034. 176 cases imported. (3/31/20)"
