'There’s a ripeness of yellow fruit on the nose, which seems to clearly reflect the generosity of the 2018 vintage. A rich viscous texture vindicates this theory, but rock-dusty mineral nuances and a phenolic piquancy add plenty of edge. Cool and dry on the finish with a fascinating hint of aniseed. 2021 – 2028.' – Michael Schmidt, JancisRobinson.com, 19/20

'The 2018 Marienburg GG Falkenlay is pure, fresh and mineral on the (flint-) stony and only discreetly fruity nose that is more for Riesling nerds rather than beginners.Round and juicy on the palate, this is a lush, very intense and sustainable Falkenlay with remarkable purity, finesse and tension.The finish is tight, complex, very long and stimulating.Extraordinarily good.13.5% alcohol. Tasted from AP 3719 in July 2020. 2020 - 2038.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 95/100

‘Very smoky, this is a seriously concentrated 2018 dry Mosel with stunning minerality and delicate, fresh-pineapple character. Very long, succulent finish that shows uplifting vitality. From organically grown grapes.’ – JamesSuckling.com, 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.
