Opens with a deep, fresh and Burgundian bouquet of ripe yet elegant black berry fruit intertwined with a chalky finesse. Clear, fresh and silky on the palate, this is a tight, fresh and chalky, remarkably refined Pinot with a long finish. Tasted at the domain in September 2019.
This Blauburgunder was made with the ripest Pinot Noir grapes, especially from the top vineyards Dechant and Käferberg.

Food pairing recommendation
Grilled meats including game, duck and goose as well as all sorts of roast or braised meats, fresh cheeses etc.
Bright ruby red with garnet reflections and a slightly transparent rim, brilliant bouquet, pure black- & sour cherry and white currants, forest berries with a touch of herbal spice and decent toasting, soft at the beginning with moderate weight, then sappy, fresh and fruity carried by an elegant backbone of still juvenile tannins and animating acidity, elegant yet tightly woven with a long delicate finish.
Spicy hints of parsnips and anise in the nose, also detectable aromas of raspberries, simultaneously cool and engaging; juvenile and straight forward on the palate, bunch of red berries underlined by roasted flavors, soft texture, well-structured and balanced, elegant and lasting finish.
