Expensive Swiss Pinot

Mattmann Pinot Noir 2004
Churer Rheintal
Bündner Herrschaft, Switzerland
Clean fresh aroma of cherries..
of finesse..tobacco...similar flavour..well-balanced..very well
made and like any
good wine...
consistant from start to finish.

Points 17

So why not more...this is supposed to be THE top Swiss Pinot. Well...give me Gantenbein anytime.

This wine is not cheap..and for
a third of the price I could buy
one of the new-wave Spanish wines
(which it reminded me of).
I have stated previously.. I like my Pinot Noir/Spätburgunder to be 'Burgundian' in style...
the Austrians have their own style..
and in this case..this Swiss winemaker
and I are not completely compatible.
