Our single vineyard Achkarrer Schlossberg is an ideal terrain for Pinot Noir. The volcanic soil of this site delivers the minerality that is needed to develop the fruity, intense and complex bouquet.
Tasting note: Lovely ripe and very fine bouquet of red plums, cornel cherries, hints of rhubarb compote, dried red current, baking spices, noble vanilla and touch of smokiness. Remarkable silky on the palate with prominent, finally juicy body. The extremely fine grained tannin pampers the entire palate. Elegant aromas of red current compote and preserved cranberries. Ripe and very well integrated acidity lead to a subtly sweetish fruit in the finish. Filigree fanned-out complexity in the noble aftertaste. A Grand Cru of great richness but without any aggressiveness of heaviness.
Food recommendation: A perfect partner with sophisticated meat dishes, especially with herb based roasts. Equally good with game and various types of savoury cheeses.
