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 Pündericher 2018 Marienburg GG Fahrlay is the selection from 75+-year-old vines on blue slate that surround the Terrassen selection. The nose is pure, fresh and intense yet also very fine and complex, with perfectly ripe fruit and herbal and crunchy slate aromas. Lush and buoyant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, very elegant, refined and balanced yet intense, persistently fruity and slightly sweetish dry Riesling with fine acidity and a long, intense, slightly bitter yet tight and tensioned finish. 13.5% alcohol." 94 pts, Stephan Reinhardt, WA

"Generous, warm and creamy, this has all the ripeness of the exceptionally warm 2018 vintage, but stays on track and is less exotic than many 2018 wines of this category. Long, supple finish with delicate spice. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drink or hold." 94 pts, James Suckling

"The 2018er Marienburg Fahrlay GG, as it is referred to on the main part of the label, was fermented spontaneously and aged in traditional oak casks from fruit harvested in a blue slate part of the Marienburg vineyard. It offers a nicely complex nose made of pear, lemon zest, gooseberry, minty herbs, wet stone, licorice, and subtly creamy elements. The wine is precise and full of grip on the palate and the fully dry-tasting and long finish leaves a nicely spicy and herbal feel. This is a gorgeously spicy expression of dry Riesling in the making. 2023-2033." 93 pts, Mosel Fine Wines, By Jean Fisch and David Rayer
