The Bürgstadter Berg Spätburgunder includes grapes of the grands crus Centgrafenberg and Hundsrück and opens with a more toasty/oaky bouquet of super ripe and juicy cherries.Silky textured with a delightful aroma of perfectly ripe fruit.Despite the strong fruity scent, the sandstone and cool terroir of Bürgstadt are still noticeable. The wine not only tastes ripe but also has a distinct flavour of stewed cherries, the texture is smooth, round, and elegant, and is concentrated, intense, and fleshy with a lot of fruitiness and appeal.

Great ageing potential and is pretty close to the GG level.

Additional Information: In the westernmost corner of the Franconian wine region, framed by the low mountain ranges of Spessart and Odenwald, the Fürst family has been making wine since 1638. In 1979 Paul and Monika Fürst built the new estate amidst the vineyards and in 2007 they were joined by their son Sebastian.

Facing due south and overlooking the picturesque towns of Miltenberg and Bürgstadt the slopes of the Centgrafenberg are home to most of the vines. Pinot Noir and Riesling thrive in the warm and iron-rich soils formed by the weathering of red sandstone. The quality of the wines is founded on minimal intervention in the vineyards, reduced yields, gentle vinification and long barrel ageing  (12-20 months). Red wines are bottled unfiltered.

Pinot Noir has been cultivated on the hot red sandstone of Centgrafenberg, Hundsrück and Schlossberg for centuries.“Rudolf Fürst is an acknowledged Pinot magician in Germany, not just with Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) but also the earlier-ripening Frühburgunder.”  Jancis Robinson MW, The Financial Times,13th November 2011.

“18 ha estate in Bürgstadt where some of the best Franconian wines are produced, especially the burgundy style Spätburgunders (rightly regarded as the finest in Germany).” Hugh Johnson, Wineguide 2012
