Pinot Noir

Reserve

2019

Subtle scents of forest berries, black and cornelian cherries, asparagus and verbena, slightly floral and still restrained, on the palate raspberries interwoven with flavors of herbs & spice, purist, as gracefully as elegant and loaded with tension, great persistence and potential.

This Blauburgunder was made with the ripest Pinot Noir grapes, especially from the top vineyards Dechant and Käferberg.

The Dechant vineyard site is comprised of calcareous loess-clay soil terraces on the south-east slope. On the higher terraces is the clay with ancient rock and gravel deposits. Usually strict selection is necessary in wet vintages in order to obtain first-class grapes.

The Käferberg vineyard site is located at the upper end of an eastern slope at about 300 metres above sea level – in the north of the town of Langenlois. Preserved calcareous, clayey marine deposits are found there.
This soil is similar to that of the famous Château Petrus in Pomerol, and produces an extremely dense wine. The top layer is partly of sand and partly of primary rock.
