  • 2012 Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir Muschelkalk

    Finally opened the 2012 Enderle & Moll 'M' (Muschelkalk meaning limestone) Pinot Noir. Compared to the other single site wine 'B' which was very floral with spice and animal notes reminiscent of a Morey Grand Cru, the 'M' was much more densely structured with pure Pinot fruit, great freshness and cut. Sumptuous like a Richebourg, the 'M' is a very different expression of Pinot. It's hard to say which I think will last longer, the haunting perfume of 'B' or the purity and cut of 'M'. I think the best solution is to open a bottle of both every year and see how they develop.

  • 2012 Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir Buntsandstein

    The colour is a lovely pale cherry red leading to a pale orange/garnet rim. This was already exciting as it suggested that the wine was not over-extracted.

    The nose is utterly beguiling with violet, red fruits, some sappy notes reminiscent of whole-bunch pressed Burg, all framed in subtle sandalwood and nutmeg. So far, served blind, this is top Burgundy...

    The palate begins with a sustained attack of red fruits, floral notes, sap, orange blossom water, then fine silky tannins and a lovely line of acid drives the long finish with notes of sandalwood and nutmeg. It quite left me speechless.

    The alcohol is 13%, it's not over-oaked, it has great acid/alcohol/tannin balance and has a lovely pale colour. Sometimes German Spätburgunder can be a touch heavy-handed but this wine really finally convinced me that this level of greatness can be achieved outside of Burgundy. Blind I would have said it was a top Morey St. Denis Grand Cru, perhaps Ponsot but it costs a fraction of a Ponsot Grand Cru!

    Sadly these wines are made in minute quantities (around 600 bottles per wine) and hopefully they remain under the radar so I can buy a handful of bottles every year. I will be certainly fighting for as much as possible!

  • 2007 Dönnhoff Dellchen Riesling Großes Gewächs

    Mineral nose with fruit nestled into a firm slatey pillow! Fruit profile is yellow stone fruits, plus some floral notes. The palate is simply explosive, with saturated yellow fruits, slate and river pebbles. Finishes long and mouth watering. This is every bit as profound as a TOP white Burgundy but a fraction of the price... Ready to go but will hold for many years.
