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.

"All of the Grosse Gewächse from the Busch stable appear to have a particular strength of their own and in the case of the Falkenlay it is the sheer substance of flavour that impresses the most. The mouth just waters with the invigorating fruit and zest of lime, lemon and grapefruit, but it is the quinine expression of minerality that stretches the tactile limits of our sensory perception. Cool, compact and complex." 
19/20 Jancis Robinson Aug-2016
