Geisenheimer Klauserweg Spatburgunder, Goldatzel

They’re proud of their Pinots, but in the early days I wanted to keep this as tidy as I could, plus there’s a lot of splendid Riesling. But this is an impressive Pinot Noir from a superb vineyard; it has class and density, smoky oak but not blatant, nubby tannin and a long leaf-smoky finish. I’ve had many more “celebrated” Pinot Noirs that weren’t this good.
