What to drink on Easter Sunday??...and no..I didn't have eggs with it!
After tasting the two previous wines..the mixed case direct from the property contained the top wine. This costs € 20,-- and I'll order some more....it's that good for the price.
Claus Schneider Pinot Noir trocken Barrique
Weiler Schlipf 2005
Some wines wait for you to poke your nose into the glass..this aroma leapt from the bottle...it gets me going when I have this type of wine....will it taste the same..will it have a long finish..will I grow old to drink my wine cellar empty?...all these questions (except the last one) spring to mind. At first..a slightly burnt aroma took over..but that was saying..this is not a simple wine..there is more to me. Beautiful Pinot smell..very Burgundian...medium sweet ripe fruit...the palate shows a lovely weight..slight prickle of soft tannins..like a sandpapered strawberry...I could gulp this if I were not a wine-lover...and the finish is medium long...what can I say..maybe the best wine in this price range I have tasted this year....if you want any....get in the queue..or ask me nicely and I might send you a bottle!
