Delightful aromas of green fruit and lime open the sensory batting, the contribution of spontaneous yeasts is contained to a subtle note of fresh vegetal aromas. Freshness is of the essence on the palate as well, with crunchy grapefruit and a tang of kiwi, sprinkled with just one turn of the salt mill. Aug 2016, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2016-2023
This offers a beautifully elegant nose of herbs, spices, grapefruit and pear. The wine proves nicely elegant and beautifully well balanced on the palate and leaves a superb feel of spices in the long and yet superbly airy finish. The wine is intense but shines through elegance and playful finesse. This is a great dry Riesling in the making, with a sense of freshness which could easily make it even exceed our high expectations at maturity! Sep 2016, www.moselfinewines.com, Drink: 2020-2035
The 2015 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG is very pure, intense and deep on the nose where crushed stones and very nice freshness are displayed. The wine is intense and fruity on the palate, lovely juicy and reveals very good length with stimulating acidity. 11.92% alcohol. || 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.

The “basic” GG from the Marienburg is a little simpler and more open than the single parcel wines. However, there are very attractive aromas of white peach and spring flowers. Medium-bodied with some of the hallmark textural richness of the Clemens Busch wines, moderately long herbal finish. Sep 2016, www.jamessuckling.com
