Clemens Busch Marienburg VDP Raffes GL
- Mosel, Germany
"The 2016 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling "Raffes" has a deep, fresh and spicy-mineral bouquet with olive leaf and crushed mocha bean aromas. Full-bodied, round and super concentrated, this is a massive yet still elegant Riesling from vines that are up to 70 years old, with dense and lush fruit as well as firm tannins."
95/100 Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate (Feb-2018)
"The ravishingly peachy nose tells you this is no ordinary dry riesling. Serious concentration and refinement, but it is only just beginning to give its best. The long finish is still a bit angular, suggesting several years of aging are needed. Best from 2020. Made from biodynamically grown grapes and Respekt certified."
95/100 James Suckling (Jun-2018)
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.
