Who & Why
Find out who we are and why we do this: About us
There are two great Rieslings and a wine in the style of a white Bordeaux.
One of the best vineyards for Spätburgunder in Germany is often overlooked: The Fellbacher Lämmler. In addition to sensational Lemberger, great Spätburgunder are also produced here. We taste 3 different producers.
Is the cult Riesling Clos Ste Hune really that good? Does a 100-year-old dry white wine from Rioja that has not been fortified still taste good?
This time we have a pineapple sparkling wine from Tahiti, produced according to the metode champenoise, and a Chardonnay from Morlet.
Today we are tasting one of the best Grüner Veltliners, the Honivogl.
This time we have a Cornas from Alain Voge.
This time we have wines from Alsace, Baden, Rioja and Tuscany.
We taste two wines from Skoff from Styria.
After Jura, Savoy is now the next region for the Hipster wine.
Here is a remarkable Zinfandel from Martinelli.
There is a Chardonnay from Kistler this time, as well as 2 great Barolo.
Moscato d'Asti doesn't hold up? Merlot only produces simple, fruity wines? It's time to put an end to these prejudices.
After two beautiful sparkling wines, we turn our attention to Chardonnay from Germany, together with a pirate.
We start the year with wines from Saint Cosme and Rebholz.
Happy New Year!
This year we tasted 801 wines, not only at the auction house, but also at organized wine tastings and on the fantastic Bordeaux trip organized by Armin Diel.
We had 10 perfect wines with full points (20/20) and 28 wines that were almost perfect (19.5-19.8/20). This high percentage is explained by our selection.
Oh man, what a wine for christmas!
Sometimes you have to try wines that you are not a big fan of.
This time we have two Barolo from Conterno-Fantino from the 2019 vintage and as a reference the Sandrone 2019 Barolo Le Vigne.
There is a great champagne and a very ripe Rioja.
Friedrich Becker's top wines are very expensive (for a German red wine) and difficult to obtain. After the sensational 2018 Pinot Noir Heydenreich and a recommendation from a friend for 2019 Pinot Noir Heydenreich and 2019 Pinot Noir La Belle Vue, we took advantage of a rare opportunity and bought all three top wines.
This time there is wine from Baden, Palatinate and Loire.
Only the best for a friend's birthday!
This time it's New Zealand versus California.
We taste Barolo 2019 from Sandrone and Altare, Gattinara from Nervi and a Pinot Noir from Friedrich Becker.
Here we have vintages 1947, 1995, 2015 and 2016.
Here we have a Barolo Le Vigne from the excellent 2013 vintage.
There are Frühburgunder and Pinot Noir.
This time there are Burgundy Grand Cru - Clos Vougeot and Charmes Chambertin.
1997 was a great vintage, but also a hot one. Not all Nebbiolo have held up well.
For a perfect long evening, you just need awesome wines.
We have from Juris 2007 Pinot Noir different vineyards and a 2016 Barolo Cannubi.
Certainly, there are more great Blaufränkisch in Austria than in Würtemberg, where the grape variety is called Lemberger. But there are more and more. In previous vintages, Schnaitmann's Fellbacher Lämmler was almost always the best Lemberger, but the other winemakers have caught up. Compared to top Spätburgunder from Germany, Lembergers are still a bargain for the quality.
There is a Brunello Cerretalto and Barolo from the great 2016 and 2019 vintages. The new Barolo vintages have such perfect tannins that they can be drunk with pleasure even young.
Besides Saffredi, we have top Riesling from Peter-Jakob Kühn and Robert Weil.
Riesling, White Rioja and Fortified are degustated this time.
Today we taste a Belle Epoque as well as Nebbiolo from the 2019 vintage.
There are Freisa and Verduno Perlaverga.
After the vacation, we return to old habits and taste great wines.
This time we have Switzerland, Rhone and Piedmont.
Wines are from Alphone Mellot, Francois Villard, Charles Joguet, Bartolo Mascarello and Conterno-Fantino.
We have a young Pinot Noir and a mature Barbaresco Riserva.
Château de Retout is a real price tip.
Sauvignon Blanc from Von Winning and Silvaner from Klaus Keller.
We have Roederer Cristal, a Spanish Orange wine, an awesome Pinot Noir and a Burgundy.
Today there are 3 different top Barolo from 3 different vintages.
Today we have some bottle that I brought back from Italy in May.
The Chardonnay Bussiador, together with Gaia & Rey, is one of the best Chardonnays in Italy. We have it this time, together with an Arneis Spumante.
It is boring to always drink only German wines with the top grape varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir. Therefore, this time we have Silvaner and Weissburgunder (=Pinot Blanc).
For a birthday, you have to open great wines.
