2018 Spätburgunder JS, Jean Stodden, Ahr

The Spätburgunder JS is a brilliant wine from Alexander Stodden, that’s excelled in 2018. On the nose smoky notes and plenty of pure cherry fruit, with a deep core and perfectly refined tannins. There’s vibrant acidity, and a long finish: this is a brilliant wine from a talented winemaker.

2018 Spätburgunder JS, Jean Stodden, Ahr
Jean Stodden

Stodden has been a name in fine wine here since 1578, and is one of the region’s star producers, with current heir Alexander at the helm since 2001. Inspired by the Cotes de Nuits, they focus on making structured, age-worthy Pinots. With relatively traditional winemaking starting with old vines, with long macerations and skin contact, and smart use of barrel ageing (both large and small), theirs are Pinots that rival the world’s best. They’re best known for their site Recher Herrenberg, where south-facing slate slopes are home to ungrafted Pinot, leading to exceptional, collectible reds.
