2019 Clemens Busch Pündericher Marienburg Fahrlay Riesling Grosses Gewächs Mosel (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1570822 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Extremely intense, herbal nose with hints of sealing wax and heavy cream. Powerful, rich and concentrated, this is a really imposing dry wine for the Mosel. Great textural complexity and a huge finish, where there's super-abundant minerality! From 110-year-old vines. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Inner quote mark (9/2021)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Marienburg GG Fahrlay is perfectly ripe and concentrated on the densely aromatic nose that intertwines ripe, intense and flinty fruit with fascinating notes of crushed stones and herbs, yet everything is already marvelously interwoven and balanced as well as pure, precise and crystalline, with lemon zest notes. Full-bodied, intense and crystalline on the palate, this is a rich, concentrated, perfectly ripe and aromatic Fahrlay with a long, intense, elegant, crystalline and persistently salty finish. This would be rich and bolder if there were no old vines in blue slate. This is an impressive wine that was bottled just a few days before I tasted it in September 2020.

K&L Notes

96 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 34 20. The 2019er Marienburg Fahrlay GG, as it is referred to on the main part of the label, was fermented spontaneously in traditional oak casks with fruit harvested in a blue slate part of the Marienburg vineyard. It offers a superbly engaging nose made of cassis, grapefruit zest, citrusy fruits, ginger, elderflower, fine spices, herbs, and smoke. The wine proves gorgeously packed with racy flavors and smoke on the intensely flavored palate and leaves a superbly playful feel of whipped cream, earthy spices, and grapefruit zest in the long and subtly smoky finish. This is a stunning dry Riesling in the making!"
