No offense to sweet Nelly Busch, but Fahrlay-Terrassen is really the big dog here. It's not classified as a GG since there's probably 11-12 grams RS; this puts it in "feinherb" territory, but I wouldn't want it anywhere else. Botrytis hit hard here in 2011 and this is a rather Wachau-esque take on the Marienburg; think Hirtzberger on the Mosel, with creamy richness and flavors of tangerine and apricot, all on a much lighter frame than you'd find over in Spitz. Superior length, breadth, ornate detail and a clear, vivid finish make this one of Clemens' most stunning wines of the vintage and one of the best we've tried from this estate. This is a textbook example of the Busch style and everything they do so well. Epic Mosel! (it was even better than the 2011 Felsterrasse, in my opinion, but don't tell that to Clemens since that's his favorite parcel of old vines) -jfr
