94+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2015 Felsenberg GG is an outstanding young wine. The wine comes in at around 12.5 percent alcohol and offers up a refined and very classy bouquet of grapefruit, white cherries, wild yeasts, dried flowers, a lovely base of minerality, petrol and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, nascently complex and just beautifully balanced, with a fine core, superb focus and grip and a very, very long, classic and refined finish. Just a beautiful wine in the making. 2022-2060. (Mar/Apr 2016)"

94 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The 2015 Felsenberg Riesling GG is from volcanic soils and a more narrow part of the valley where the fog stays longer than in Bockenau or Monzingen, so that the smoother skin leads Tim to an earlier picking. The wine opens very precise and flinty, but also fruity, with some yeasty flavors. It seems to be darker or more smoky flavored than the corresponding Kupfergrube. On the palate, this is a rich, very concentrated, precise and piquant Riesling with a long and intense aftertaste. The wine combines its ripe apple flavors with flinty aromas and shows great grip and salinity. The grapes were picked at lower potential alcohol levels than five years ago, but they were still ripe and rich enough for another impressive grand cru from Tim Fröhlich. Drink: 2020-2030" (Dec 2016)

94 points Wine Spectator: "[$110 list] Very pure and crisp, but with an underlying creaminess to the explosively fruity flavors of red peach, apple, pear and ripe citrus. Saline notes show midpalate, accented by white pepper hints. The spicy finish is long and lush. The essence of Riesling, in a dry style. Drink now through 2026. 400 cases made. (11/9/16)"
