Look at the pricing of your average village-level Burgundy from a respectable domaine. You will be required to spend £20 upwards, often closer to £30. You could do that, but you could give this wine a go instead. I can almost guarantee that you will never look back. Considering the lush Pinot character - effortless smoky summer fruits and gamey, orangepeel and sandalwood notes - the beautiful balance and opulent texture this wine offers, frankly, it's a steal. 2015 was an especially warm year in Baden producing beautifully ripe fruit. This has translated to a an entry-level wine that is open and generous but easily capable of ageing too. Johannes told us he recently opened a bottle from 2008 that was drinking perfectly. This really is freakishly good-value. However many bottles you buy of this wine, it will be too few.


Press Note:

Hamish Anderson, whose wine recommendations appear in our Saturday magazine, lists wines from Weingut Claus Schneider at the Tate; as he says, it isn’t easy to find decent pinot at this price. I really love the fluency and silkiness of the Claus Schneider Spätburgunder Weiler 2015 (13.5%, swig.co.uk, £22). 2015 was a warm year so there is a generosity and breadth of fruit here – a super wine that would be delicious with pulled pork, or slightly chilled with blackened salmon. (I’ll be recommending a couple more Swig wines next week in our Summer Wine Special, so if you want to mix an order, remember this wine when you see them.) - Victoria Moore, Saturday Telegraph 2018
