Clemens Busch Spatburgunder Sekt blanc de noir brut
Wonderfully complex and elegant with lightly feathered fruit.
- Mosel, Germany
The charming and self-effacing couple of Clemens and his wife Rita have gained a cult following over the past three decades for their laser-sharp, richly textured and terroir defined wines. Riesling is the king of grapes, the Mosel its most illustrious terrain and so produces its ultimate expression. Nowhere in the world is the identification of vine, winemaker and produce more precisely defined, and nowhere have we found Rieslings to compare with these.
In the sweet versus dry debate, it’s worth noting that Clemens only uses natural yeasts, preferring each wine to find its perfect balance in each vintage. This sparkling is a surprising Pinot Noir ‘blanc de noir’ sekt, wonderfully complex and elegant with lightly feathered fruit.
"Who knew the Germans made sparkling wine that tasted this good? Not us. This sekt has to win best discovery of the day with its elegant fizz, light fruit notes and wondrous complexity. There was brioche, nuts and subtle red fruits coming from the pinot noir grapes, and yet still plenty of differences between the sekt and any champagne due to the soil – the typical chalky character is missing here, but not to the wine’s detriment."
