Clemens Busch Marienburg 'Falkenlay' GG
Clemens always manages to coax magic out of the Marienburg hill and the last three years have been no exception. Here we offer the first dry and sweet releases of 2019, the longer lees-aged top crus from 2018 and two freshly released, two-year lease aged reserve crus. Take your pick, it’s a veritable feast.
"As promising and gorgeously savory as the 2019s are, the 2018s should not be underrated. 2018 is an exceptional vintage for Rita and Clemens Busch, and the range of great wines is wide. Born in a warm yet less dry year than elsewhere, the 2018s are richer than the 2019s and 2017s and certainly lower in acidity. The 2018 GGs, as well as the 2017 Reserve wines are absolutely fabulous. In fact, I don't know many other producers who excel with all the Riesling disciplines from dry to noble sweet. This explains why so many wines are rated 95 or 96, no matter the style or level of sweetness or even the vintage. " Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, August 2020
"The 2018 Marienburg GG Falkenlay is pure, fresh and mineral on the (flint-) stony and only discreetly fruity nose that is more for Riesling nerds rather than beginners. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a lush, very intense and sustainable Falkenlay with remarkable purity, finesse and tension. The finish is tight, complex, very long and stimulating. Extraordinarily good. 13.5% alcohol." 95 pts, Stephan Reinhardt, WA
"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." 95 pts, James Suckling
