The 2018 Weingut Clemens Busch Marienburg Felsterasse Grosse Lage Riesling is a distinguished white wine from the Mosel Saar Ruwer region of Germany. Produced by Weingut Clemens Busch, this Riesling showcases the unique characteristics of its terroir and vintage.

In terms of its production, the 2018 vintage did not ferment to a legally dry state but still achieved an alcohol content of 13%. This wine is cork-sealed and presents itself with a classic white wine appearance.

A standout review from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, dated August 13, 2020, awarded the wine an impressive score of 95 points. The reviewer, SR, describes the bouquet as "deep, intense and flinty yet refined and elegant, with ripe fruit aromas intermixed with delicate slate notes." This highlights the complexity and finesse of the aromas, which are both rich and nuanced.

On the palate, the wine is described as "round and intense yet refined and elegant." It is noted for its rich and powerful profile, almost oily in texture, yet maintaining purity and vitality. The Riesling is dense, intense, and long, demonstrating a well-balanced structure and vibrant freshness, which is particularly remarkable given the abnormally warm and dry conditions of the 2018 vintage. SR mentions a slight bitterness on the aftertaste, adding another layer of complexity to the wine's profile.

This Riesling stands out for its intricate balance between richness and elegance, making it a noteworthy example of a high-quality wine from the Mosel Saar Ruwer region. The 2018 Weingut Clemens Busch Marienburg Felsterasse Grosse Lage Riesling is ideal for those who appreciate a complex, well-crafted Riesling with a powerful yet refined character.
