‘Here comes the boss! The dense grapefruit, rosemary and thyme nose pulls you inexorably into the orbit of this rich and concentrated dry riesling that has enveloping,salty minerality. And, in spite of all this, it is laser-beam bright and has white-flower delicacy at the very deep finish. From 110-year-old vines. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.’ – Stuart Pigott, JamesSuckling.com, 98/100

‘The 2020 Marienburg GG Fahrlay Terrassen offers a clear and intense, warm and concentrated yet refined and flinty bouquet of weathered slate and iodine aromas intermingled with super ripe and juicy Riesling aromas. Refined and crystalline on the palate, with immediately salivating salinity, this is a very intense and concentrated, long and complex Riesling with iodine notes and crunchy tannins. A spectacularly good wine. 12% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in July 2022. 2025-2050’ – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 97/100

‘Made with fruit from 100-year-old vines, grown on blue slate, facing the Mosel. Clemens Busch works biodynamically, aiming to reflect his wines’ terroir, with the variety only the medium. The citrus fruit therefore plays a minor role, and it is more about the phenolic compounds, smoky hints and saline finish, which all add up to multi-layered complexity. A monumental wine. 2021-2040’ – Caro Maurer MW, Decanter, 97/100

‘Opens with animating fragrance of grapefruit, orange, spice and a hint of mineral dust. Really lively on the palate with zesty sweet and sour notes of grapefruit and orange, healthy acidity and a delicate mix of mineral and spicy components on the finish. Almost electric. 2023-2031’ – Michael Schmidt, JancisRobinson.com, 18.5/20

Technical analysis RS: 10.2 g/L
Producer information Clemens is the 5th-generation winemaker at his family estate and began using organic practices in 1984. Later a pioneer in biodynamics, Clemens Busch is now a role model for natural, but precise German winemaking. Unlike most of the Mosel region, however, Clemens focuses on dry, elegant Rieslings that express the complex terroir of this historic region. Their unique soils in the town of Pündericherallow them to produce many iterations of the Riesling grape. Clemens Busch is based on the 3 types of slate – red, blue and grey – each imparting different characteristics and styling.
