*Pre-arrival offer - will be £32.00 RRP Wines arrive mid-June 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.
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.
