Winemaker's Notes:

Aus alten, zum Teil über 60-jährigen Blaufränkisch-Reben gekeltert. Strahlendes Bouquet, frische Noten von Holunder, Wacholder, Sauerkirschen und schwarzem Pfeffer. Frisch, sehr nobel, klassisch strukturiert und ausgewogen am Gaumen. Eine Delikatesse für Liebhaber grosser Rotweine.

Herbal and medicinal on the nose with sweetly nuanced, tight wild berry fruits and hints of juniper and sage. Round and soft in the mouth, but not from a lack of acidity. This just has a languid if juicy style that allows the subtly complex notes of dried herbs, candied cherry fruit, earth, old wood and almost floral fennel spice to drift across the palate before they hit the backstop of that acidity. The finish is much more lively, offering fine cut and lovely little nubby, sweet tannins for some textural diversity. There's a touch of bitterness and a hint of red apple peel on the moderately long finish that add some lovely detail here. This has soul. 92pts

Light, a bit sweet. A little sour as well.

Chocolate + coconut aromas with red berry fruit. Typical pinot body, which is nicely balanced.

A swath of saline and mineral flavors and racy acidity define this complex white, which is cool, yet not reserved, with layers of black currant, herb, peach, persimmon and stone elements that play out on the long aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2024.

Pure bouquet of honeydew melon, magnolia and sweet lime. The velvety sweet fruit and salty acidity give this wine an exotic kick. Pure and impeccably balanced, with a lively, elegant finish. Spatlese is seldom better in its youth than this beauty.

Lachsfarbenes Gelb. In der Nase feingliedrige Muskataromatik, untermalt von dezenter Williamsbirne und etwas Pfirsich. Im Gaumen überrascht ein frischer, fruchtiger Auftakt, welcher in einem weichen und hauch cremigen Mundspiel gipfelt. Tolle Süss-Säure

Aus alten, zum Teil über 60-jährigen Blaufränkisch-Reben gekeltert. Strahlendes Bouquet, frische Noten von Holunder, Wacholder, Sauerkirschen und schwarzem Pfeffer. Frisch, sehr nobel, klassisch strukturiert und ausgewogen am Gaumen. Eine Delikatesse für Liebhaber grosser Rotweine.

Pale yellow-green color. Crushed stone, lime oil and ethereal white flowers on the nose. Wonderfully elegant wine combining serious richness and density with terrific grip. The white peach, spearmint and spice flavors are complicated by a soil-driven saline minerality. Finishes with superb grip and dusty length. This is two-thirds Chapelots and one-third Pied d'Aloue, the former providing fat and the latter minerality, according to winemaker Seguier. Grand cru suavity and complexity here.
