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.

Rothenpfad was mentioned in the historic Mosel wine map as among the best in the region. The red slate that dominates here provides the wines with an herbal-spicy note, balanced with a definite off-dry note. The opulence of the vintage suits this wine perfectly – not for the faint-hearted!

What the critics say:

96/100James Suckling

"Dramatic nose with a complex tapestry of dried-herb and wild-berry aromas that already make a very serious statement. Enormously expressive, with a stunning interplay of fruit, spice (cardamon!) and minerality, this is both deep and delightful. The balance spot-on at the very long, tannic yet silky finish. And only 12% alcohol! From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold."

96/100Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

"The 2020 Marienburg GG Rothenpfad is deep, pure and intense on the complex and refined, peppery, crunchy slate and herbal nose that reveals ripe and finely concentrated tropical fruit with finely phenolic aromas. Full-bodied and lush on the palate, this is a rich, crystalline and savory, very elegant and refined dry Riesling with a long and complex, very well-balanced finish. Tasted in July 2022."
