Marienburg Rothenpfad Großes Gewächs Riesling 2011

Undeniably #Mosel. Perfect balance of fresh grapefruit-like acidity and a weighty midpalate. Lover of #lees! #2011 #dry #GG #ClemensBusch #Rothenpfad #Riesling — 5 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

Dr. Loosen

Ürziger Würzgarten GG Alte Reben Riesling 2011

One of the greatest #Riesling vineyards anywhere on earth. The #WÜRZGARTEN or "spice garden" also boasts extremely old root stocks as well as the PRÄLAT and SONNENUHR, but the tremendous concentration of #redslate in combination with volcanic soil give these wines an amazing complexity. With very steep slopes, acidity and structure are never an issue. The excellent balance found in the #Loosen 2011s is the key to their projected longevity. #GG #ÜrzigerWürzgarten #altereben — 5 years ago
