Clemens Busch Riesling Trocken Marienburg Rothenpfad GG
"A zesty fragrance of grapefruit and lemon prepares for a truly invigorating Riesling experience. On the palate the citrus fruit takes on a delightfully sweet expression, which is perfectly balanced by animating acidity and rich texture. Accents of fresh kiwi fruit and orange peel serve only to heighten the sensory pleasure and complete a successful combination of generosity and vibrancy. Drink 2016-2025." 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson (Aug-2016)"The 2015 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Rothenpfad is clear, fresh, deep, precise and elegant on the spicy nose. Round, charmingly intense and lush, this is a piquant, pure and finesse-full Riesling with sensually ripe fruit and an intensely fruity finish. This wine has the lowest acidity of the grands crus but has power, tension and a lot of charm." 92/100 Wine Advocate
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 section 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!
A stunning wine, with intense citrus nose and entry, vibrant acidity but a serious depth and balance to the palate. Saline and mineral further enhance, with a light background of an almost caramelised tropical fruit. Long and enticing, mouth watering finish, it's hard to decide whether to let it longer for an age, or take another sip
