Clemens Busch ‘Marienburg’ GG 2017 Riesling

Clemens Busch is the fifth generation of Busch men to farm their family's vineyards along the Mosel. 

The man is an iconoclast, a renegade, and arguably the best 'natural' producer of fine wines in the region. 

A man well ahead of the curve, Clemens began converting his vineyards to organics in 1984. He now has each site certified biodynamic and is producing powerful Rieslings with no additions save the minimum amount of effective sulphur.

The Grosses Gewächs wines are the best examples of dry Mosel that Clemens produces. Insanely intense and with phenomenal drive, these world-class wines hail from excellent vineyards.

The Marienburg 1er GG is from 40 year old vines planted on a grey slate section of the vineyard. It shows ripe citrus and blistering acidity - a stellar example of dry Mosel that will cellar for decades to come.
