Pinot Noir [Spatburgunder] Dry ‘Tradition’, Kunstler

After all my yammering about the Rieslings, I’m gonna show you the whole range of Pinot Noirs, for which Gunter is equally well reputed. This one’s made in 1,000-liter casks; it consists of the “rejects” from the single-sites, and please please, drink it from a tulip and not from the homicidal Zalto “Universal.” This creamy and fruity wine is classic Dijon clone and has a bell-pepper note a bit like the 1998 Côtes du Beaunes—indeed this recalls an honorable Beaune from a good grower.

Tasting Notes

“Polished and sophisticated with wonderful spice and fruit; gentle tannin, warmth with structure, as fine a German PN as I’ve tasted. Made in 2nd-3rd-4th-use barriques.” Terry Theise
