In 2014 Gault Millau gave the estate a second star, Eichelmann proclaimed it to be the Rising Estate of the Year on the Mosel, Stuart Pigott mentioned him among Germany's 111 top young winemakers and his Spätburgunder was given a spot in Carsten Henn's "111 German Wines That You Have to Have Drunk".
The wines deliver clear fruit aromas and low alcohol levels for both the modern and for the region's classic varietal wines, where of course Riesling plays the main role as elsewhere on the Mosel. The Paulys also produce a small batch of high quality barrique-aged reds that are routinely rated among the finest in the region. The wines stand out both for their taste and their visually striking labels, created by a Swedish designer. The three curving lines on the label depict the profiles of the three Pauly generations, namely Peter, Rudolf and Axel.
The winemaker's signature shines through as clear and authentic in the vinothek as in the wines. During its 2015 construction, it was tailored to feature natural materials, including the facade, flooring and bar in slate, inner walls clad in larch, and the great table in oak. A walk-on glass pane provides a view into the barrique cellar below, with a staircase leading from the sales room and foyer into the cellar.
