Tasting Notes

Very Gevrey-esque. Sourced exclusively from the hallowed turf of the Weiler Schlipf, aged for two years in barrique. There's a touch more spice here and a soft smokiness - almost like berries adorned with smudgey kohl eyeliner, intertwined with cherries, cola nut and sandalwood. No awkward mid-level, or middle child syndrome here, thank you. It's the sort of wine that could convince you that it's the estate's top wine in a lineup before knowing there's one even more magnificent.

More Info

Inspired by Burgundy, but definitely wines unto themselves, we first met Claus’s son Johannes in 2017, when he had just returned from a year's stint working at Gevrey domaine Rossignol-Trapet, and as he has gradually taken over the reins, the wines have only got better. They farm a total of 15ha of vines, scattered across 70 individual parcels inside the Tullinger Berg nature reserve, with their very best sites sit on the the geological marvel that is the ‘Weiler Schlipf’ – a seam of limestone rising up out of the Baden landscape that benefits from unrivaled sunshine hours. This provides the vines and fruit with taut minerality.
