Bargain Baden Burgundy

You wait for a bus for ages..then 2 come along at once.
Not really a great comparison as I have been drinking plenty of wines with very good price/quality ratio. It just seemed I am blessed by the wine god at the moment. After the Laible..I opened this little gem.













Fritz Waßmer Spätburgunder Barrique 2005

Baden, Germany
Dried, sour cherry nose..just a faint beetroot smell...and a fair dollop of barriques (spends time in a big one)..just lovely to smell...and the palate offers soft, spicy, ripe fruit. Very Burgundian which is the Waßmer style..and I am a fan...! Drink this with anything barbecued..or even in a menu with pasta maybe....for lovers of young, upfront Pinot. The French are improving..but find me a Burgundy of this quality for the same money...€ 11,--
Points 16.5...perhaps worth a little more..but surely not for the price!!!
Send me the next bus...
Try repeating the title 10 times...

Visited this estate in February. Great wines. He is known for his famous asparagus.

Even at 10am on a Sunday I'm having trouble with the three word tongue twister. . .

Lyle....yes..I heard about his Asparagus...I am a 'green' man though...think I have overdone it with the white version. I love his Burgundian style...still an insider tip...

Edward..the secret is..finish the bottle..then you will be word perfect!
