Benedikt Baltes 2016 Spätburgunder Grossheubach Alte Reben

This is the village wine of the Bichofsberg vineyard and like the Erste Lage, this shows darker pinot noir aromas than the Klingenberg sites do. It’s also more concentrated and intense, more like Côte de Nuits whereas Klingenberg is more like Côte de Beaune. It was aged for 18 months in neutral 300-500L German oak barrels from the Klingenberg forest. There is more grape tannin here, and less “sweet” tannin as in the Klingenberg, but there is a spicy, minty note as well as a floral, rose component. It’s serious pinot noir with class and distinction.
