96-97 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2018 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is very fine, concentrated and beautifully clear, with blossom honey and very fine berry aromas on the nose. (The 20% to 25% of botrytis is very clear and precise, almost imperceptible.) Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a generous but highly digestible Auslese with orange, raisin and (pink) grapefruit flavors. The finish is incredibly racy-piquant, salty and highly digestible. This is still a baby, but it is highly promising. Tasted from cask in March 2019. Drink: 2035-2070. (Jun 2019)"

95 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 21 19. The 2018er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese was made from fruit partially botrytized grapes (10%) harvested at 105° Oechsle, and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a gorgeous nose of white peach, yellow orchard fruits, pineapple, white flowers, herbs and fine spices. The wine is beautifully filigreed despite the intensity and creaminess of the structure on the palate. Gorgeous flavors of creamy almond and exotic fruits make for a BA feel in the hugely long finish. This is a stunning effort. 2033-2068. (Aug 2019)"

93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2018 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese has a bit more botrytis to it, with about thirty percent of the bunches nobly rotten this year. The wine is still quite understate in its glazing, wafting from the glass in a lovely combination of lime, tangerine, honey, citrus zest, a touch of wild yeasts, a lovely base of soil and a topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and complex, with a lovely core, good backend salty mineral drive, bright acids and fine focus and grip on the long and zesty finish. This is delicious as well. 2023-2070. (Mar/Apr 2019)"
