“The 2019 Marienburg Kabinett is pure, bright and fresh yet heavily reductive on the nose that displays a kind of slate perfume with white fruit aromas. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a hedonistic Riesling with elegance, piquancy and stimulating salinity. A fabulous Riesling that tastes rather like a very digestible Spätlese, though. Good length, grip and salinity. Tasted a sample in May 2020.” 93 points Stephan Reinhardt
2021 Clemens Busch Marienburg Kabinett
The cool and long 2021 vintage has yielded Kabinett wines of particularly electric balance, with several growers mentioning 2008 as a comparable vintage; many people feel that 2008 is one of the finest Kabinett vintages of the past two decades, so not a bad comparsion in my book. No press yet, but……trust your grower……I myself am heeding the hype, and will plan on 6-12 of these.
“The 2019er Marienburg Riesling Kabinett, as it is referred to on the main part of the consumer label and with AP 11, was made from fruit picked at 86° Oechsle and was fermented down to fully fruity-styled levels of residual sugar. It offers a beautiful nose made of pear, vineyard peach, cassis, elderflower, whipped cream, herbs, and fine spices. The wine proves beautifully balanced and animating on the palate and leaves a gorgeous feel of herbs in the long and superbly racy yet fruity finish. This is a gorgeous Kabinett cut along the lines of the “great drinking Auslese from the 1990s” in the making! 2029-2049″ 94 Mosel Fine Wines for the 2019, NOT THE 2021 OFFERED HERE
