Clemens Busch is an iconic Riesling producer based in Punderich, Mosel, Germany. Clemens Busch has become one of the selected members of VDP, a new in-house classification defining German wines by quality, not by the sweetness level. VDP divides into 4 quality levels, namely, “Grosse Lage” (Great Growth), “Erste Lage” (First Growth), “Ortswein” (Village wine), “Gutswein” (Regional wine). Clemens’ specialty lies in “GROSSES GEWACHS” - GG, which is a dry wine from the top growth ‘Grosse Lage’.
Each wine from individual parcel reflects the unique soil type and its micro-climate.
Clemens Busch is a certified organic wine estate, with biodynamic viticulture.
The 2015 Riesling Trocken has a clear, fresh and open bouquet followed by a refreshingly pure and piquant, nicely juicy and charmingly fruity palate. This wine was bottled at the end of September with 58 milligrams of sulfur (total) and just 10.4% alcohol.
The 2014 Riesling GG Falkenlay shows a very clear and elegant, quite open bouquet of highly ripe but healthy Riesling flavors along with marjoram aromas. Round and elegant on the palate, very pure and delicate with a gentle minerality that is remarkably persistent but never loud, this is Busch's most sensual and finesse-full dry Riesling with a very long finish. Perfectly balanced and intense, there is no need to store this beauty, but some will want to do so. Don't buy bottles, buy cases, because you will always drink a bottle of it from time to time.
100% Riesling (Sweet White) A sweet and ripe tropical fruit aroma intertwined with flinty flavors and hints of honey leads the 7% alcohol 2013 Marienburg Riesling Spätlese to a rich and juicy, well-concentrated, almost velvety textured sweet palate (thanks to its generous botrytis fruit), which is structured by a delicate acidity and the stimulating piquancy in the finish, revealing a really nice and animating grip. There is no need (though enough potential) to store this excellent Spätlese for more than 20 years
Style: Sweet White
100% Riesling (Medium Dry White) Citrus grapefruit, peach, floral notes are well-balanced with high acidity. Particularly, high acidity brings your appetite up and sweetness is well presented with riper fruits than typical Kabinett.
Style: Medium Dry White
