2018 Clemens Busch Riesling Trocken (dry) Mosel

SKU #1486286 90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sourced from a wide array of Pünderich vineyards, only a minority of those in the Marienburg Einzellage, this 11.5% alcohol cuvée offers admirable buoyancy and abundant brightly juicy white peach and lime, as well as transparency on the persistent finish to intriguingly stony, mossy, nutty and ashen nuances. How much more could one ask of an entry-level generic bottling? (This represents the latter of two generic dry Busch Rieslings – the other, which I have not tasted, bearing A.P. #25 – each similarly sourced, but from slightly different lots.) (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A well-crafted, dry version, with floral aromas and flavors, displaying elderflower, quince blossom and cantaloupe notes. Shows good concentration, yet retains elegance. The acidity imparts focus and balance as this extends on the finish. Drink now through 2028. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 25 19. The 2018er Riesling Trocken comes from the Estate’s secondary vineyards (Pündericher Goldlay, Rosenberg and the east-facing part of the Marienburg) as well as declassified fruit from its “Grand Cru” vineyards. It offers a beautiful nose made of white peach, flowers, herbs, and spices. The wine is beautifully balanced and playful on the fruity and mineral-driven palate, and leaves a gorgeous feel of fine herbs in the finish. A touch of power comes through in the aftertaste. 2020-2028. (10/2019)" *biodynamic*
