Who & Why

There is the best of Moscato d'Asti and a recent vintage of Barbaresco Sori Paitin. Moscato d'Asti has low alcohol, usually between 4.5% and 5.5% ABV, and lots of fruit and freshness. Perfect in summer on the terrace!

We have Klaus Keller and Domaine de Chevalier.

We have 2018 Pinot Noir Occidental Station Vineyard and 2016 Arneis Sette Anni.

For us, the old Gaja wines, which were produced by the father, are much more interesting than the modern wines. Great vintages are 1961, 1964 and 1971.

1971 was a great vintage for sweet Riesling wines in Germany. The Staatsweingüter produced sensational wines until the 1970s, especially in the great vintages of 1971, 1975 and 1976.

The 2020 vintage seems to be a very fruity vintage, with great aromas, very fine tannins, but a little less density and power. You don't have to buy the most expensive wines to have great pleasure. We tried some wines from Vajra and Baudana under € 70.-, here are our favorites. For comparison, there is a slightly mature Barolo Riserva from Accomasso.

One of the best Hermitage Blanc comes from Guigal.

There are wines from Tuscany, Campania, Trentino and the Rhone.

We taste a Blanc de Blancs, two Chardonnays from California and a wine from Chile.

2014 was a difficult vintage, but the top producers have once again made great Barolo.

Today we have Roeder Cristal, Dom Perignon, Pontet Canet and Weinert Malbec Estrella.

We have Barolo from the two Conterno brothers, one modern and one traditional.

Due to vacation and illness it took a little longer this time, but now there is a new tasting. Here we have only great wines with 18/20 points or more.

Let's go with Spumante from Piedmont, St. Joseph from the Rhone and a Spätlese from the Nahe.

This time we have Champagne, Barbera from Piedmont, a Pomerol, a Port Epigone from South Africa and a fortified wine from Australia.

Today we have 3 powerful Rieslings and a Châteauneuf-du-Pape from 1923.

The prices for Burgundy wines are high, so California is always an alternative. We taste two wines that should both be great.

We have a very rare wine from the Montmartre vineyard in Paris and a sensational Barolo Cerequio 2016.

Today there is one Merlot from the Napa Valley and two Barolo.

There is a Riesling and a Cabernet, none of them tastes like its grape variety.

It comes from California, but has a Burgundian style.

This time: A sparkling wine from Ferrari and a great Canon La Gaffeliere.

Here we have two bottles with Cabernet Franc, one is a blend with Shiraz and one is pure.

This time there are three interesting wines from different regions.

We have a  Palo Cortado Solera from M. Antonio de la Riva. This sherry proves once again that sherry is one of the most affordable high-end wines and is always great value for money.

Here we have a Gattinara from 1961.

We taste Nebbiolo, Zinfandel and Dornfelder.

There are great wines for a multi-course meal.

The Dürnsteiner Kellerberg is an archetypal Grüner Veltliner of the upper class.

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.
