Grown on rare limestone soil, perfectly suited to Spätburgunder / Pinot Noir around Schweigen on Germany and French side of the border. The wines are 13 to 35 years old and do grow very low yields.
The grapes were carefully selected by hand, destemmed and fermented separately on the mash. After 2 to 3 weeks of fermentation in open oak fermenters, called "Cuves", and punched down by hand they were pressed gently and put into barrels of 225 litres made from finest German and French oak. 40% used barrels and 60% new ones. The further maturation took place for 16 months in small oak barrels. Bottling without filtration and fining of the wine.
Pleasant, clear ruby red with dark reflection.
On the nose, scents of wild berries, tobacco, spices and forest soil.
Juicy on the palate, elegant with good length and structure.
