Riesling GG Marienburg

2017

From the original Marienburg parcel which has been in the Busch family for generations. This large grey slate parcel produced in 2016 a wine of sexy floral aromas, succulent acidity, moderate concentration and unusually charming, approachable character for a young GG, especially a Busch GG! A wine of enormous, immediate pleasure... and incidentally, the best priced GG in our portfolio.

"From 35- to 40-year-old vines on gray slate soils in the main part of the cru, the 2017 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG is quite intense and chalky on the pure, crunchy, lemon-scented nose. Ripe and lush on the palate, with deep fruit, good concentration and a long, intense, crunchy and salty finish but also quite a lot of power, this full-bodied wine needs a big glass and a lot of air to unfold its talents. Bottled in November 2018, tasted in March 2019."
