Best Co-Op In Baden

no doubt about that with the experts....
and 80% is planted with Spätburgunder vines

The Pfarrberg vineyard faces to the south-east and gets a whole dose of morning sunshine..which the above experts say is better than the evening version. So it is..that the wines are as good as it gets for the price you pay. Most folk will know Co-Operatives in France. The German equivalent is Winzergenossenschaft. A recent visit showed a massive range to choose from. Most of the growers in Waldulm belong to this WG.. it was founded in 1928. Cellermaster is Urban Laible.

Winzergenossenschaft Waldulm

Waldulmer 'Selection' Pfarrberg Spätburgunder 2005

Baden, Germany
Tight aroma..liquorice..which opened with a few swirls..cherries, blackcurrant/blackberry jam...some vanilla...easy on the palate tannins...thick fruit..typical 'sweet' style of the area...very tempting..maybe not elegant..but age may help...
Points 16.5
