Lovely bright red cherry and strawberry fruit, with such delicacy and a subtle wisp of smoke. Some dried orangepeel, sandalwood and liquorice, with such nuance. Gentle allspice on the palate, gleaming coffee beans and a long, lush finish. Tannins are fine and silken.
From the southernmost vineyard in Germany, where unrivalled sun hours combine with the sort of clay-limestone soil which provides the very best expression for Pinot Noir - entschuldigung, Spätburgunder - Schneider must go down as one of our most best ever finds. Price-wise, this is such good value that you many never drink Burgundy Pinot again.
