"Bottled at the end of June, the 2019 Riesling Trocken intermixes ripe and juicy Riesling fruit with a delicate slate aroma. Lush and round on the palate, this is a delicate and even salty Riesling with juicy fruit and a fine Ribera structure on the finish. It has 10.5% alcohol yet is intense and expressive—stunning. Tasted at the domain from AP 25 20 in September 2020."
Clemens is the fifth generation winemaker at this estate (all the previous ones were also named Clemens; ever the iconoclast, he named his son Florian) and he began using organic practices in 1984, more recently transitioning to biodynamics, for which he has become a role model and beacon of change among German winemakers. Most of the wines at the Busch estate are vinified dry, and they are rich, complex and often powerful. They age very beautifully, gaining in complexity and texture. However, the sweet and noble sweet wines from the estate are also impressive, ranking among the finest wines made anywhere on the Mosel. It is important to note there are not a lot of committed "natural" winemakers in Germany in the sense that we know it from France and elsewhere; Busch is considered by many to be THE master interpreter of that philosophy in Germany. In numerous ways, these are some of the most iconoclastic wines we have ever tasted.
