2018 Bürgstadter Berg Erste Lage Spätburgunder, Fürst, Franconia

With grapes coming from the Centgrafenberg and Hundsruck vineyards, the 2018 Burgstadter Berg is a really impressive wine from Sebastian. Details, vibrant, and so intense, this has remarkable tension, and will age beautifully. Incredible.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Bürgstadter Berg Spätburgunder includes grapes of the grands crus Centgrafenberg and Hundsrück and opens with a more toasty/oaky bouquet of super ripe and juicy cherries. Silky textured, very intense and also powerful on the palate, this is a big and tight, firmly structured and rather tannic Pinot that has been aged in 25% new barriques. This is a charming, even smooth and sweetish Pinot trio from the Centgrafenberg and at least 35% Hundsrück. Terribly fresh, salty and tensioned. Great aging potential and pretty close to the GG level. Tasted as a barrel sample in January 2020. To be bottled in April this year.
