The Giggle Belt Marking System

If only to prove I don't eat like a king every day...a left-over 'Schnitzel'....and some Black Forest Smoked Ham to be paired with the Austrian.

Now...if you have been with me for a while...you will know that I believe Pinot Noir should be sexy. Let's try to compare to the female of the sex...I am a man...if you are a woman...find your own comparison.
A really good Pinot would be like getting a glimpse of thigh...you get my drift. Well...with this one...all I have is some ankle...and not a very rounded one at that. I tried a basic version from this property...which also didn't hit me for six...and decided it was worth trying the top wine...and the vintage convinced me. Cherry colour....with a sour-fruit aroma...and a stern feel generally. A trace of sweetness popped up with a little airing...so I left it until next day. Sorry girl...you ain't for me...keep wearing the trousers...cos there is nothing for me at the moment. This is rated...which may mean it is down to styles and tastes.....I can recommend Aerobics...but at the moment

Ah...some knee here...this is sexy...super sweet strawberry...fine structure...one of those wines...from start to finish...what you see and smell...is what you get...very harmonious. This is an 'insider' property...and Roland Pfleger is not the type to go banging his drum. His wines are limited...and sell anyway. Delicious...and at € 15,-- a must buy....and a great label. Bravo!

I know what you are waiting for now....what part of the leg is this one...well...let's say upper calf...although the grainy style...does not lend itself to any sexiness. That's not to say that it does not have other attributes. This is more 'Pfalz' than Pfleger's wine...and has a good dose of acidity...it is still evolving...thickened overnight...the wine...not the calf...with some smoky leathery tones.
Points 16.5


In the 60's....a young man's aim was the 'Giggle Belt'. What was that you ask?
Ladies look away please...
Well....after putting your hand on a girl's knee...and working your way northwards...if you had no rejection...you had reached the 'Giggle Belt'....and it meant you were laughing!...or at least smiling with satisfaction. Anyone got a spare Romannée-Conti...now that is a Giggle Belt wine!
