2020 Weingut Clemens Busch Pundericher Marienburg Falkenlay Riesling Großes Gewächs

$39.99
2020 Weingut Clemens Busch Pundericher Marienburg Falkenlay Riesling Großes Gewächs
The wines from Clemens Busch are incredible and intricate plays on Riesling's textural, cerebral, and minerality, producing some of our favorite and reasonably priced examples from Germany. Clemens Busch is a 5th generation winemaker and a leading biodynamic producer in the Mosel since 1986. Working in Pünderich between the middle and lower Mosel, Clemens tends the Vineyard of Marienburg made up of many parcels which have not seen chemicals in decades. The committee over sighted these parcels tasked with classifying the area; they lumped all of them together, many in different locations and of different qualities, and put them under one name, Marienburg. Clemens has taken steps to revitalize the "lost" parcels by tapping into their unique individuality by using the individual names they were given before the classification. There are three types of slate that the vines are grown on depending on the parcel: grey, blue, and red. Each type shows itself in the wine very differently.
Falkenlay is a classic site that is perched high on a steep slope named after its sheltered location where Hawks still come to rest (Falken means hawk in German). This prized site was always considered the best in Punderich by the old winemakers of the village, a terraced vineyard that comes right to the water's edge. The soils of Falkenlay are a bit deeper than the surrounding sites of Rothenpfad and Fahrlay. They contain a lot of weathered slate on the surface, promoting a more opulent wine showing creamy and fruity flavors while still boasting soaring minerality and acidic energy. It's a mouthwatering and extremely long wine that is so precise and pure it checks off every box imaginable when we think of a great dry Riesling.

James Suckling 98 points! "If you thought you knew what peaches smell and taste like, then think again. At first there's a touch of bready character form long sur-lie maturation, but then the most ravishing peach aroma develops, plus notes of wild rose, orange and jasmine. Super-elegant on the ripe yet extremely precise palate. The peachy beauty only expands and expands at the breathtaking finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold."
