A. Christmann Spatburgunder 2013

Member Review by Mary Margaret McCamic:

An outstanding expression of just how good German Pinot Noir can be. Soft red fruit, like cherry, stands out among notes of earth and sweet spices. Medium-bodied, with soft, very light tannins and a long, pretty finish. I love this red with a big plate of charcuterie, or perhaps a roasted chicken with butternut squash.

In 1845 Prof. Dr. Ludwig Häusser, professor of history at Heidelberg University and a member of the Vorparliament of the Pauluskirche together with his cousin Johann Martin, founded a small winery in Gimmeldingen as a hobby. During the next generation, wine-growing grew to become their main profession. In 1894 Eduard Christmann married Henriette Häusser, the granddaughter of the founder. Today, the Estate bears the name of her son Arnold and is run in the 7th generation by Steffen Christmann . Even with the Estate's size today, the hobby aspect is still an important factor.

Max Gerstl: Irgendwie habe ich es einfach mit dieser Mäushöhle, schon der Duft strahlt eine Sinnlichkeit aus, die kaum zu beschreiben ist, das ist intensiv aromatisch, von purer Finesse, strahlt einladende Wärme und Reife aus, was für eine köstliche Mineralität. Der Wein ist klar noch besser als der feine 2006er. Am Gaumen ist alles einfach nur zart und fein, gleichzeitig strotzt der Wein vor Saft und Schmelz, schmeichelt den Gaumen, verwöhnt ihn mit subtilen Riesling-Aromen und legt am Schluss noch ein minutenlanges, regelrechtes Aromenfurioso hin. Der Wein hat schon die Klasse eines Grossen Gewächses.
