Sperss Langhe Nebbiolo 2004

#2004 was a banner year in #Piemonte and this gorgeous #Nebbiolo still needed plenty of time to breathe before our main course... #decanting a day prior would have been optimal. A luscious, supple, truly hedonistic #Barolo style that shows great intensity, concentration and depth of flavor! The aromas that burst forth from the glass are the essence of blackberries and wild game. This remarkable wine is in absolutely no danger of fading anytime soon... rather it has years of life ahead of it--BRAVO! — 4 years ago

Grosses Gewächs Marienburg Rothenpfad Riesling 2011

This softer, more approachable 2011 #GrossesGewächs (#GG) needs advance #decanting in order to really express its enormous potential--layers of #tropical fruit notes and #mineral flavors abound--drinks now but has years of life ahead of it. #clemensbusch #riesling #Mosel — 4 years ago

Undeniably #Mosel. Perfect balance of fresh grapefruit-like acidity and a weighty midpalate. Lover of #lees! #2011 #dry #GG #ClemensBusch #Rothenpfad #Riesling — 4 years ago

"#Rothenpfad" means "red path" in #German and that refers to the soil in this parcel, which is composed of #redslate; a rare occurrence on the #Mosel that is responsible for the richness, intensity, and #minerality of these long-lived #Rieslings. The #2011 #GG is a blockbuster that thrives on plenty of advance #decanting and longs for a wide range of various food companions. #ClemensBusch
