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

"Bottled unfiltered and with a low dose of SO2 at the end of February this year, the 2017 Marienburg Fahrlay Reserve is fine and pure as well as fresh and slatey on the nose, delivering bright, spicy, fully ripe mirabelle and aromatic Riesling aromas with quartzite notes. Juicy but very delicate and round on the palate, this is a very refined, elegant and relatively light-footed yet intense, concentrated and persistent Fahrlay with a long and complex finish. Power and finesse with purity and Alsatian texture—this is a weird mix but fascinating to follow. Very salty and piquant on the finish." 96 pts, Stephan Reinhardt, WA
