Klumpp's Cuvée

Weingut Klumpp
Cuvée N°1 trocken 2009

Baden, Germany
How do you 'measure' how good a property is. One way is to try their basic see how talented a winemaker is. The wine should be fairly priced...and not just a quaffer...but show qualities above it's status.
When I purchased a mixed 6-pack from the property I was trying to decide on a last bottle to fill the box. Markus Klumpp almost 'insisted' I try this wine. It is a Cuvée from Lemberger, Spätburgunder & St. Laurent.

A sour cherry nose...and a delicious mouthful...fruity and juicy...lively acidity...easy drinking but showing enough complexity to please any connoisseur. It costs € 9,-- which is value...
Points 15.5
Unless a cork is old ( I then use my Butler's Friend..a twin prong cork puller) my corkscrew has always been the Screwpull.
