Tschuppen Spätburgunder 2018

Lyle Fass

Stunning nose. So tangy with early to midseason cherries. Spice and limestone galore. Really vibrant with incredible lift. Heavy cherryness. Ripe. Gorgeous. Palate is round, juicy and very tangy. Salty and pure. Lovely freshness. All tangy mid season red cherries and wonderful brightness. A summer Pinot. A beautiful lipstick like intensity to the nose. Gorgeous fruit density and texture. Unreal juiciness. Just explosive. A brilliant Tschuppen. — 3 days ago

Maximal Baden Spätburgunder 2018

N: Very dark blood black red cherries, tobacco, some grape, loam, forest floor. Peat. Quite mineral on the nose. Like mica in humus.
P:A very tactile wine indeed, grippy but not overtly. Cherries repeat, tobacco,very pure, it’s bright and balanced, no one aspect dominates. When people describe Pinots as “ earthy “ here you are. Beautiful!
Thanks @Fasselections

Wow. Just wow. This nose has unlimited depth. Huge dark cherries. Black. Red. Dark red. Stunning limestone. Blackberry as well. Just huge, dense, but serene. Spice. A new nuance every time I stick my large nose in the glass. Palate is painfully intense and has a kaleidoscopic intensity. Ungodly sweet fruit and a huge limestone mineral wash but in classic Holle fashion this is around 10% of its potential upon opening and the finish is again clipped like the 19 Holle Riesling. The nose has almost a macerated cherry effect. The balance and length are perfect but it’s a donut wine right now with a big gaping hole in the the middle. It will bialyize soon. The nose is at a 9.7 now. I know the palate will catch up. The nose has some of the most stunning fruit ever. Truly wow. The finesse is starting as are the sweet inner mouth aromas and the tannins are sweet and so fine. Really profound length and such a finesse. I can see why Piggott gave this 99. I’m not quite there yet but I might with air. Getting super tangy and even more black cherry fruited. What a finish. Sneakily long. 9.6 to 9.8 with air. Just so elegant and seamless. Mind blowing. — a month ago

A perpetual favorite. And most vintages age. But I drink this too fast. Only the 2013 never made it.
