Tasting Notes

This is the king among the village wines, probably because it’s actually all Burgberg, the “GG.” At once tall and deep, with superb aromas of nettles and pistachios; palate is earnest and judicious but neither dour nor severe. A “wine of ideas,” you could say; it considers your dissertation and writes gentle notes of measured praise. All it’s lacking viz. the “GG” is the Affect Of Mighty Significance, which guess what—I don’t miss. — Terry Theise
