Riesling GG Marienburg Falkenlay

2017

65-90 year old ungrafted vines planted on grey slate. A dry wine from a site famous for its noble sweets. Firm, vivid, gingery, incredibly ripe and saline with acidity that elevates it to a quiveringly “alive” state of being. Perhaps the best food wine in this collection and clearly a long term cellar candidate.

"...pure but generously ripe and bright, with matured and super matured apple aromas that are perfectly intertwined with notes of crushed or even milled stones. Full-bodied, intense and generous on the palate, this is a rich and powerful but silky-textured and highly refined Riesling with lots of extract and intensity but also elegance. The finish is dense and compact, with fine tannins intermingled with refreshing minerals that give grip and tension. This is a great GG and most likely the finest I have tasted from Clemens Busch in 20 years. Tasted in March 2019."
