After The Ball Is Over

While in Waldulm at tbe Rebstock...a couple of days before I was due home...my wife called and I told her about the Wachtel (Quail) and the Spätzle. I asked Karl Hodapp if he could prepare a couple for me...and on leaving...they were packed and placed in the coldest part of the car. Two days later we ate them...and I decided to open a couple of bottles purchased while in Baden.



Franz Keller Chardonnay S 2011
Baden, Germany

Pale green yellow...promised a more lighter style...maricuja nose...surprisingly delicate...some vanilla and a touch of toast...promising...
Points 16


Bimmerle Spätburgunder R 2010
Baden, Germany
Trace of smoke...dark berry aroma...quite full...lovely middle palate...and a trace of vanilla.
This has spent 18 months in new Barrique. Another promising wine to try again in a year.
Points 16.25


and a couple of days later...
Bimmerle Spätburgunder Benedikt 2009
Baden, Germany

Intense dark fruit...Cherries......a serious wine...more cassis than expected...compact tannins...but softly softly...and approachable....had this with smoked salmon!...and it paired well...
Points 16.5
