Tasting Notes

This single-site wine is the entry-level, and is usually a fruit-forward albeit typically cracked-pepper rendition. The ’14 shows a high point of BF pepper and the char-marks on grilled red meat. It has a lot of the Leithaberg in it—the ’14 reds are all upgraded by Georg’s decision not to bottle his two Grand Crus—the vintage was small and laborious. The tank-sample I tasted was ready to bottle; it’s more brooding and earnest than usual, more dark iron but also greater length. It’s an upgrade for sure, but it isn’t the usual gushing beauty. – Terry Theise
