2017 Clemens Busch Pündericher Marienburg Falkenlay Riesling Grosses Gewächs Mosel

SKU #1486287 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Falkenlay is 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. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Expressive, with notes of jasmine and white pepper framing the core of Bosc pear, quince and citrus oil flavors. Shows substance and length, with prominent acidity cutting through, delivering balance yet keeping everything intact. Needs a few more years, but this is on the right track. (AZ) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of caramelized fruit here, such as toffee apples and apricot-flavored creme brulee. The palate is soft and supple with a perceptible touch of sweetness. Drink now. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark On the nose, this delivers intimations of radish, mustard seed and crushed stone common to a great many of the youthful Busch 2017s. But one also gets whiffs of fresh lime and white peach that translate into generous juiciness on a subtly silken palate. Here is another Busch bottling that fascinates and delights with its juxtaposition of underlying textural richness with tang, cut, piquancy and pungency; and in this instance the seriously sustained finish sets one’s tongue and tonsils tingling. (DS) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

93+ Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 31 18. The 2017er Pündericher Marienburg Falkenlay GG was fermented spontaneously in traditional oak casks with fruit harvested in a grey-slate infused part of the Marienburg vineyard. It delivers a complex and creamy nose of yellow peach, almond cream, freshly cut herbs, as well as a hint of tangerine and gingerbread. The wine starts off on the round and charming side on the delicately juicy and creamy palate. It is only in the finish that it really reveals its intense presence. Some saline and spicy elements in the after-taste add extra depth to this gorgeously ripe expression of Riesling. This could easily exceed our high expectations if further gains in finesse with aging. (10/2019)"
