Ahr First Growths

My wife & I are at the age where we don't give each other presents at Christmas..we save the money for a break or to go out for a meal. There are no rules about giving ourselves gifts tho..well..that's my excuse...

Continuing my search for Spätburgunder from the Ahr...I purchased a case of top-end wines from the 2003 & 2004 vintages...all 'Grosses Gewächs'(First Growths)..

Looking forward over the next 2 weeks to tasting these (hopefully) gems.

Thanks for your introduction of German Pinot. Unfortunately, in U.S, there seems to be a lack of interest in these wines and finding them is almost impossible.
