2015 Clemens Busch Riesling Raffes

2015 Clemens Busch Riesling Raffes


The Raffes is one of the most intense and intellectual bottles of Riesling made in the world, no matter how you slice it. I wish you could see the micro parcels that these late released bottlings emerge from. 99% of people simply wouldn’t believe that any crazy person would try to farm such impossibly steep, tiny, and craggy terraces. Again, Clemens is allowing me to make early reservations for this one, as he knows that I am the right kind of passionate wine freak to entrust with his best…….if you’ve got it, good for you!! Get what you can justify, and enjoy the fireworks in the years to come!!! :0

“From predominantly ungrafted vines on gray slate, the 2015 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling Raffes offers a fascinating bouquet of pure slate with peppery and lemon grass aromas. On the palate, this is a rich and powerful yet elegant and balanced Riesling with great tension, juice and expression. The finish is very long and complex. This is a great dry Mosel Riesling coming from the best part of the Falkenlay terroir of the Pündericher Marienburg. What intensity and finesse! The 2015 will be released in September 2017.” 97 points Stephan Reinhardt
