A zesty fragrance of grapefruit and lemon prepares for a truly invigorating Riesling experience. On the palate the citrus fruit takes on a delightfully sweet expression, which is perfectly balanced by animating acidity and rich texture. Accents of fresh kiwi fruit and orange peel serve only to heighten the sensory pleasure and complete a successful combination of generosity and vibrancy.

Enormous herbal and spicy nose. At once rich and delicate, the considerable power of this wine is underplayed, all the herbs and spices surging back in the complex and intense finish. Only just beginning to open up. Sep 2016, www.jamessuckling.com
The 2015 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Rothenpfad is clear, fresh, deep, precise and elegant on the spicy nose. Round, charmingly intense and lush, this is a piquant, pure and finesse-full Riesling with sensually ripe fruit and an intensely fruity finish. This wine has the lowest acidity of the grands crus but has power, tension and a lot of charm. || 2015 was "a super vintage," says Clemens Busch. "We had a perfect vegetation period and a perfect autumn. The flowering was early but very good, with just a bit of color. The summer was hot and dry but in September we had a bit of rainfall, which was perfect for the grapes. We started harvesting on September 25 and we finished November 11. During that time we did not have any rainfalls and harvested perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. We selected for several styles and quality classes and could really do what we wanted to do – except of noble sweet wines. There was simply not enough botrytis, so there is nothing above Auslese in from 2015." Nevertheless, 2015 was the best yielding vintage since 2011 at Clemens Busch. The wines have high extracts and ripe acidities, are concentrated and very clear. "Since I wanted to keep the wines clear and lean, I sulfured earlier than usual to avoid the malolactic fermentation. If it occurs in the last weeks of the fermentation the wines tend to get too broad. I prefer a leaner, purer, fresher and stimulating style for our grands crus, though," explains Clemens. The alcohol weights of his 2015 grands crus are between 12 and 12.5%, only Raffes and Felsterrasse, both from extremely steep and warm spots and absolutely spectacular in 2015, finished at 13% alcohol. There have been many great 2015s produced at Clemens Busch and even the recently released 2014s are more than positive highlights of this difficult vintage.

This offers a rather ostentatious and inviting nose of candied lemon, wet stone and dried herbs. A great sense of precision and grip comes through on the palate which carries over to more minerals, some grapefruit and pear in the delicately powerful finish. The wine is beautifully well balanced and incredibly long. Sep 2016, www.moselfinewines.com, Drink: 2020-2030
