Top Notes For
Wulf Losee

2016 tasted 2020. Dark chocolate on the nose with some notes of chalk. Cassis and raspberry fruit on the front — but the fruit isn’t very intense. Medium tannic structure with a lot of calcaire incorporated into the soft mouth feel. This a delicate wine all the way to the end. Lingering finish with an aftertaste that reminds of apricots.
