Ahr First Growth # 5

The 2003 Vintage was not officially a
Grosses Gewächs....the following year
was the first year he could use the description.
Stodden Recher Herrenberg
Spätburgunder 2003 JS Auslese *** trocken
Ahr, Germany
Nose a little rough and ready to start with...lightly roasted..then in the Burgundy glass the red and black fruits moved their butts..and we got a real nice smell. This is a cooler style of wine and quite dry..thick in the mouth and a juicyness followed by a dry finish..the acidity giving it a fresh feel. On the bottle it recommended decanting..but as time was not available.. I used a massive glass....but maybe I was the next day the wine had lost it's charm..slighty maybe TOO much airing was not correct.
Points 17.5
