WOW 🎆...every time we open this bottle I am just floored at the QPR, nothing beats it. For a sub $30 Spätburgunder, I'll take this every vintage.

On the nose we have black pepper and luscious, ripe blackberries/strawberries, perhaps violet sneaking up on you.
On the palate, so smooth with chalky Pinot fruits, sweet spice notes, earthy/loamy minerals and oh the cherries, they just keep coming at you!

Finish is forever, minium 3-4 hour decant required.

Paired with some beautiful 🐖 chops from a 1/2 pig we purchased last fall... Farmer direct, it's the best way to know the quality of your food.

Complex, deep and expressive. But also a bit saturated and rich in a way that seemed slightly sweet when tasted next to a Burgundy. Incredible nose. Great wine for the money. Better on day two.

Tastes like ... liaison in a great year. Nice ripe fruit combined with classic E&M spice and a bit of licorice. Nose is ... hard to describe... because it’s sort of unique. Great wine. Bought from Fass selections.

Thyme on the nose. Elegant. I like the alpine 🌿 herbs description. It’s spot on. For the money the most complex Pinot on the market. Very highly rated because of the low price. If there is any chance you see this wine go get it. Tried many times this is one of my last bottles they do not last.

Fanatstically aromatic nose with loads of ripe red fruit and some roses. On the palate, great acidity, pomegranate, cranberry, some bitterness, but a nice finish, with a touch of chalky tannin. Very appealing right now, but seems like it has the stuffing to improve with a bit of bottle age.

Much riper than the 14, which was very under ripe. Lots of savory characteristics. Raspberry. Herbal. Just a beautiful wine. Uniquely German.

Needs some air time to get going, first sip after an hour decant, little funky, smokey, cherry notes; blind I'd think this is a Beaujolais (Morgon) almost every time. This is the first of the Liaison '15's, many more to go, so we can see how it develops in the years ahead. Consistently​ one of our favorite bottles, drinks way above it's sub-$30 price point. Always interesting what comes out of Baden, Germany.
Night two with 1/3 bottle under VacuVin, not missing a step or lost a single thing during the past 24 hrs. I think this will be amazing in about 3-5 years.

Damn. If there's a better old world Pinot Noir at this price, I've never had it. Gorgeous tart cherry, earth, sous Bois, and an herbal complexity they says "I'm not a Burgundy, but I play one on TV."
