There is a really nice smoky & oakey flavor to this. It has clearly been matured in wood. This process also takes away the overly sugary/sweet nature of a typical port. This is absolutely delicious! — 8 days ago
Wow. Pure. Sweet wood. Confection. Floral. So complex and deep. Juicy and lean but so energetic and tense. Sappy and mineral. Huge huge minerality. Like a Chablis/Chassagne blend. Concentrated and sweet. Framing wood. Wow. Tense. So much tension. This is genius. — 18 hours ago
Nose is dried lilacs.
Palate is soft blackberries. Cassis. Elegant Bramble. Liquid candied lilacs. There is this wood after effect that’s not my jam. Maybe it’ll be better in 5 years but I think I prefer the other cuvées. There is some beauty though.

@Delectable Wine this is called Kalk & Kreide and is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc.
Lovely nose. Confection, light wood, lemon, wood shavings, elegant, laserkike focus and precision. Juicy and pure. Lovely stuff. Really dig this. So sappy and electric. Creamy but also electric. Lovely. Sweet wood complements. I could truly drink a lot of this. Energetic and long, A unique wine. So good. Sappy and energetic and wonderful purity. Fantastic. — 18 hours ago
Beautiful light brick-brown colour with pink reflections. First nose evolved on dried fruits, nuts, apricots, then notes evoking maple syrup, peach syrup, hazelnut. Light, creamy, deep, paradoxical fine as great wines know how to make us experience it. Remanent finish, to be tasted certainly once in a lifetime when you can as an aperitif, such as on desserts based on nuts, chocolate, apricots, or with a camembert with raw milk. Serve a little refreshed.
Belle robe brun-brique clair aux reflets rosés.. Premier nez évolué sur les fruits secs, noix, abricots, puis des notes évoquants le sirop d’érable, la pêche en sirop, la noisette. Fin léger, onctueux, profond, paradoxal comme les grands vins savent nous en faire faire l’expérience. Finale rémanente, à goûter assurément une fois dans sa vie quand on peut à l’apéritif, comme sur des desserts à base de noix, chocolat, abricot, ou encore avec un camembert au lait cru. Servir un peu rafraîchi. — a month ago
@Delectable Wine this is called Spätburgunder Burgstadter Berg. Sweet raspberry, sweet cherry, very aromatic, tree bark, licorice and some framing sweet wood. Juicy and sweet with great density and purity. Sweet wood on the finish. Good inner mouth aromas and creaminess. Lovely length. Excellent sweetness. — 12 hours ago
