Wine Advocate 96 Points- "The 2017 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Falkenlay is pure but generously ripe and bright with matured and super matured apple aromas that are perfectly intertwined with notes of crushed or even milled stones. Full-bodied intense and generous on the palate this is a rich and powerful but silky-textured and highly refined Riesling with lots of extract and intensity but also elegance. The finish is dense and compact with fine tannins intermingled with refreshing minerals that give grip and tension. This is a great GG and most likely the finest I have tasted from Clemens Busch in 20 years. Tasted in March 2019."
The 2017er Pündericher Marienburg Falkenlay GG was fermented spontaneously in traditional oak casks with fruit harvested in a grey-slate infused part of the Marienburg vineyard. It delivers a complex and creamy nose of yellow peach, almond cream, freshly cut herbs, as well as a hint of tangerine and gingerbread. The wine starts off on the round and charming side on the delicately juicy and creamy palate. It is only in the finish that it really reveals its intense presence. Some saline and spicy elements in the after-taste add extra depth to this gorgeously ripe expression of Riesling. This could easily exceed our high expectations if further gains in finesse with aging.
