Clemens Busch Riesling Trocken Marienburg Rothenpfad GG
The acidity is absolutely fine, and the long finish reveals remarkable balance.
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!
"From red slate, the flinty-flavored 2016 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG "Rothenpfad" is pure, fresh, precise and intense on the nose, indicating perfectly ripe yet remarkably fine fruit and great mineral complexity. Full-bodied, lush and intense on the palate, with very fine tannins, mineral flavors and almost round, silky-textured fruit, this is a powerful but impressively finessed Rothenpfad with remarkable purity and mineral tension. The acidity is absolutely fine, and the long finish reveals remarkable balance. Still young but very promising. Bottled at the end of September; tasted February 2018." 94/100, Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
