More Info

Inspired by Burgundy, but definitely wines unto themselves - the quality is spectacular. As Claus’s son Johannes (who trained at Gevrey domaine Rossignol-Trapet) has gradually been taking the reins, the wines have only got better. Oak management is the most telling thing here: the wood is never allowed to overshadow the fruit. The geological marvel that is the ‘Weiler Schlipf’ – a seam of limestone rising up out of the Baden landscape – provides the vines and fruit with taut minerality to accompany bright cherry-dominated fruit. At every quality level, these are exceptional quality and value, especially when (inevitably) compared with their Burgundian counterparts.
