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.

They have been members of Respekt, a group of winemakers who work biodynamically, since 2015. Clemens has long been a pioneer in organic viticulture, abandoning herbicides as early as 1976. In the early 80s his philosophy became more clearly defined as he met other Mosel producers interested in following these methods. At this time, he also started to experiment with lower sulphur levels and although he has made wines with zero sulphur, he thinks the combination of Riesling and the Lower Mosel climate calls for small additions to achieve the best results.

What the critics say:

98/100James Suckling

"Here comes the boss! The dense grapefruit, rosemary and thyme nose pulls you inexorably into the orbit of this rich and concentrated dry riesling that has enveloping,salty minerality. And, in spite of all this, it is laser-beam bright and has white-flower delicacy at the very deep finish. From 110-year-old vines. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2023."

97/100Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

"The 2020 Marienburg GG Fahrlay Terrassen offers a clear and intense, warm and concentrated yet refined and flinty bouquet of weathered slate and iodine aromas intermingled with super ripe and juicy Riesling aromas. Refined and crystalline on the palate, with immediately salivating salinity, this is a very intense and concentrated, long and complex Riesling with iodine notes and crunchy tannins. A spectacularly good wine. 12% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in July 2022."
