‘Crushed rock notes, slate and a dash of saffron, with more emerging balsamic aromas in the glass. On the palate quite soft and plump, a silkiness that almost transcends into something beyond the material. Ethereal, spicy, sweetness and acidity are completely merged.’ – Ulrich Sautter, falstaff, 96/100

‘The 2018 Marienburg Felsterrasse did not ferment to legally dry but still reached 13% alcohol. The bouquet is deep, intense and flinty yet refined and elegant, with ripe fruit aromas intermixed with delicate slate notes. Round and intense yet refined and elegant on the palate, this is a rich and powerful, almost oily-textured yet pure, vital and finessed Riesling in the dry style. The 2018 is dense, intense and long, very complex, well-balanced and vibrantly fresh for this abnormally warm and dry vintage. Slightly bitter on the aftertaste. 13% alcohol. Tasted from AP 0320 in July 2020. 2020-2040’ – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 95/100

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.
