Bercher 2019 Burkheimer Feuerberg Kesselberg Spätburgunder Grand Cru dry

Regular price £49.70
"On a south-facing slope, volcanic soils. Was its own single vineyard until 1971, but then no longer recognised by the regulations, until 2013 when the authorities ones again allowed them to put the name of the vineyard on the label. One week of cold soak. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel and in barrel for one year.
Rose-hip bouquet; really, really fragrant. Silky but textured, in the way that well-pressed!
Nutmeg. Super-fine spices, translucent fruit, long arcs. The fruit is so pure, but there is a subtle, rugged power within the wine. A backbone of acidity and minerality that makes it stunningly persistent. Yet so restrained, so subtle. So refined. You could so easily drink this now, but it will age beautifully." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 17.5 points
This Spätburgunder Grand Cru has a dense, red berry aroma and is juicy, powerful and elegant on the palate. It has a long finish with pronounced, but well-integrated tannins. The grapes that produced this Spätburgunder were grown on 30 year old vines.

"On a south-facing slope, volcanic soils. Was its own single vineyard until 1971 and it was only in 2013 that they were once again allowed to call it by its proper name. This is the only wine they do a cold soak on, for one week. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel and in barrel for one year.
Charming perfume with a tracing-paper-fine touch of the autumn leaves and mushrooms to come. Sweet, pretty, generous strawberry and cherry fruit with a touch of marzipan on the palate. Gentle but those tannins are confident; peppery, gentlemanly but in charge. Love the cool, mineral-dust spice here. Baharat, again. Long and fantastic."
