A wine with the dew still on it. Lovely youthful red cherry, strawberry and blackberry fruit and a subtle wisp of smoke, dried orangepeel, sandalwood, gamey, new leather (Johannes's CS range is partly matured in new barriques) notes emerging with time in the glass. I'm transported to Gevrey tasting this. On the palate, the tannins are present but fine enough for the wine to be very enjoyable now. Laying down would be wise, however. The wine is structured but subtly so, with a firm backbone of acidity - from a combination of the limestone soil and the cooler 2014 vintage - suggest ageability of ten years at least. Johannes management of the flavour profiles and the clear delineation of quality levels is remarkable.


Press Note:

Decanter's Top 20 German Spatburgunders: "Expressive red and black cherries, almost heady, dominate the nose. The palate is juicy and vibrant; it comes on light feet but carries power with supple, well-defined muscularity. Gorgeous backbone of acidity. Animating and invigorating style, with fine texture. Drink 2019-2027. 92 points"
