2009 Weingut Battenfeld-Spanier Kirchenstück Spätburgunder GG

2009 Weingut Battenfeld-Spanier Kirchenstück Spätburgunder GG. If I told you that this #wine, a Pinot Noir from #Germany could rival 1er Cru Burgundy, would you believe me? Attractive cherry fruit, spice, tobacco, earth and menthol. Very intense and vervy and it has tannins in spades. I just love this stuff. This serious Spaet was paired with roasted cornish game hens…in my opinion an ideal match. Can be had from Fass Selections at about $35. No brainer. Thanks @grapelyle.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
