When I visited the property in September last year I bought a couple of the 2008 version and two bottles of this wine. The property is reknowned for it's Rieslings...and the reds maybe a side-line for freaks (Me).
Spätburgunder Durbacher Plauelrain Spätburgunder trocken S 2009
Just a lovely ripe sweet fruit nose...all that this great vintage can promise. Whereas the 2008 was taunt and geeky...this is instantly appealing. Dark berry and wild cherry fruit. A perfect example to convince everyone to buy this vintage in Baden.

Pinot Noir Koenigsegg 2007
A favourite property of mine...having had a few vintages of their top Pinot Noir. This is the 'basic' version...and with any top property should show what they are made of at a lower level. Forward...on the nose a fresh cherry aroma...very easy to drink sweet fruit...with a gentle tartness to keep you interested. Spends time in large oak barrels...but as you would expect...nicely integrated. A wine to enjoy with grilled meat on a warm summer evening.
