2021 Clemens Busch Pündericher Marienburg Fahrlay GG




“The 2021er Marienburg GG Fahrlay, as it is referred to on the main part of the label, was fermented spontaneously in traditional oak casks from fruit harvested in a blue slate part of the Marienburg vineyard. It offers a restrained, zesty, and spicy nose of violet, bergamot, lily flower, lime zest, and smoke. The wine is delicately fruity initially on the palate. Zesty elements then join the party and lead to a linear and hugely focused feel of herbs and spices in the very long and bone-dry tasting finish. There is a hint of tartness in the background in need of integration. This truly great dry Riesling now only needs a few years to fully shine. There is quite some upside potential here. 2026-2036” 93+ Mosel Fine Wines

“The 2021 Marienburg GG Fahrlay is enormously pure and flinty on the intense and almost iodine nose that reveals stony and phenolic aromas with mocha notes. Lush and very elegant on the palate, this is a round, intense, textured and balanced Fahrlay with ripe and piquant yet elegant acidity intermingled with young, phenolic grip and mineral tension. With less than seven grams per liter of residual sugar, this is possibly the driest GG of the vintage here. Tasted as a sample at the domaine in July 2022.” 93-95 Stephan Reinhardt
