2018 Clemens Busch "Pündericher Marienburg" Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1486285 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lightly smoky with some lemon pith and dried spices. There’s some light sweetness here, but it’s nicely balanced out by the edgy acidity. Taut and very precise on the finish. Drink now. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark White peach, apple, honeydew melon and lime are tinged with lemongrass and cilantro on the nose, and with nippy cress on an otherwise polished, lusciously fruited and subtly soothing palate. Nearly 60 grams of sugar manage to come off as entirely supportive, and the lingering finish both soothes and stimulates. (This year’s village-level Busch Kabinett seemed oddly out-of-sorts on the sole occasion – side by side with this Marienburg – that I was able to taste it, so I have left it un-reviewed.) (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows yeasty notes at first, with accents of jasmine and hops, followed by electric acidity that fuels the green apple, lemon and nectarine flavors. Balanced and beautiful in terms of texture, exhibiting substance. Smoky details emerge on the well-defined finish. Best from 2021 through 2033. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

K&L Notes

92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 11 19. The 2018er Marienburg Riesling Kabinett, as it is referred to on the main part of the label, with AP 11 was harvested at 90° Oechsle and was fermented down to fully fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (58 g/l). It offers a beautiful nose made of lemongrass, mint, whipped cream, smoke, and floral elements. The wine proves a little creamy at first, but then a gorgeous touch of zest come through which adds cut to the wine. The finish is mineral and racy, with an elegant touch of bitter-lemon adding a beautiful mouth-watering side to the wine. (10/2019)" *Biodynamic*

When seeking "naturally" made Mosel Riesling seek the wines from Clemens and Rita Busch. Organic since 1984 then more than recently transitioning over to Biodynamic practices they are fifth generation winemakers of the Punderich Estate. I can see why they have such a loyal following for their wines, known to have explosive liveliness, salty expressions, dried tree fruit and unusually pleasant savory herbal notes. These bottling are absolutely suitable for aging but I have enjoyed many with out waiting and have been very pleased. They open up and become and stay lively and delightful to the last drop.
