2011 Friedrich Becker Spätburgunder Pfalz

Similar to the 2010, perhaps lacking it's floral character. Lovely wine, great drinkability. The 'simpler' bottlings seem to get shorter time in barrel, which is nice.

    5/19/15, 11:17 PM - I was mistaken. My source was from the weingut itself but I must have misunderstood. The information I can find online says the wine has been matured in large bottis (i.e. not small barrels). At the weingut I got explained to me that the difference between the Spätburgunder and the Spätburgunder "B" was that the later had been on small oak-barrels while the other not had been. I interpreted this as it had not seen wood at all which clearly is not the case.

    In 2 months I will go there again and this time and try to understand better. I love the wines.

    Vierzehn monatige Reifung in grosen und kleinen Eichenfässern.

    I will go and stand in a corner and drown my sorrows with this wine.

This one gave almost nothing on the nose and palate, even after a long decant.

Put away, for a looooong time...

Jura, Puligny Montrachet and Champagne; 9/8/2013-9/20/2013: I note to my surprise that CT members have already been buying this: It was served to us today as a preview of a wine not yet commercially available. Much brighter, more forward and exciting than the 2005, with superb racy acidity and a robust but beautifully crafted mineral structure. And the oak wasn't as obvious. A great future in store. 92P(?)
