2018 Clemens Busch Pündericher Marienburg Falkenlay Riesling Grosses Gewächs Mosel

SKU #1514830 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very smoky, this is a seriously concentrated 2018 dry Mosel with stunning minerality and delicate, fresh-pineapple character. Very long, succulent finish that shows uplifting vitality. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Marienburg GG Falkenlay is pure, fresh and mineral on the (flint-) stony and only discreetly fruity nose that is more for Riesling nerds rather than beginners. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a lush, very intense and sustainable Falkenlay with remarkable purity, finesse and tension. The finish is tight, complex, very long and stimulating. Extraordinarily good. 13.5% alcohol. Tasted from AP 3719 in July 2020. (SR) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Scents of kiwi, white peach and honeysuckle anticipate the tangy juiciness and inner-mouth perfume that ensue on a full, silken palate. This finishes with a fine combination of soothing richness and stimulation, albeit also with a hint of heat from roughly 13.5% alcohol. (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

K&L Notes

93 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 37 19. The 2018er Falkenlay GG, as it is referred to on the main part of the label, was fermented spontaneously and aged in traditional oak casks from fruit harvested in a grey-slate infused part of the Marienburg vineyard. It offers a superb nose made of melon, grapefruit, brown sugar, pear, passion fruit, licorice, and herbs. The wine proves intense and coats the palate with quite powerful herbal notes and a hint of camphor. It is slightly round yet multi-layered and leaves an intensely tart feel full of grip in the long finish." (10/2020)
