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:

94-96/100Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

"The 2021 Marienburg GG Fahrlay Terrassen offers a beautifully pure, clear, intense and elegant bouquet with great concentration and very fine blue slate aromas. Full-bodied, lush and intense on the palate, this is a rich and round but dry and grippy Fahrlay Terrassen with a long and intense, finely concentrated but juicy finish. Very promising. Tasted as a sample at the domaine in July 2022."

94/100James Suckling

"This is a rich and generous dry riesling with plenty of Asian pear, melon and white peach aromas. Quite some textural complexity from the interplay of fine tannins and creaminess from sur lie maturation. Plenty of crushed stone minerality at the firm finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold."
