Clemens Busch Spatburgunder Sekt Blanc De Noir Brut 2013
cult following over the past three decades for their laser-sharp, richly
textured and terroir defined wines. Riesling is the king of grapes, the Mosel
its most illustrious terrain and so produces its ultimate expression. Nowhere in
the world is the identification of vine, winemaker and produce more precisely
defined, and nowhere have we found Rieslings to compare with these.
In the sweet versus dry debate, it’s worth noting that Clemens only uses natural
yeasts, preferring each wine to find its perfect balance in each vintage. This
sparkling is a surprising Pinot Noir ‘blanc de noir’ sekt, wonderfully complex
and elegant with lightly feathered fruit.
"Who knew the Germans made sparkling wine that tasted this good? Not us. This
sekt has to win best discovery of the day with its elegant fizz, light fruit
notes and wondrous complexity. There was brioche, nuts and subtle red fruits
coming from the pinot noir grapes, and yet still plenty of differences between
the sekt and any champagne due to the soil – the typical chalky character is
missing here, but not to the wine’s detriment." DrinkUp.London, 2016 Read more
