Our older vintages
Opens with a clear, fresh, elegant and subtle bouquet of ripe red berries and cherries. Rich and sumptuous on the palate, this is a juicy, round and fleshier Pinot compared to the refreshing 2016. The 2017 is fine and reveals a grippy, still slightly astringent tannin structure.
This Blauburgunder was made with the ripest Pinot Noir grapes, especially from the top vineyards Dechant and Käferberg.
