Deutzerhof Spätburgunder

There are not many wine categories which are undervalued in total. Albariño from Northwestern Spain, as reviewed in the post below, may be one. Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) from Germany is definitely one. These wines are well made and have become attractive as the climate in Germany is warming.

The 2007 Deutzerhof Caspar C Spätburgunder, from the Ahr, from a very good vintage, tastes of black cherry and forest floor. As a 12 year old wine, the tannins have softened and deliver a well-rounded mouthfeel. This is a medium bodied wine with a silky texture. This wine is still fresh and dynamic, but the finish does not hold as long as the palate suggests at the start.

Score: 92/++
