Lively fruity Pinot Noir, fine but long lasting. Spicy aromas of strawberries, wild berries and plums. Fine nuances of coffee and chocolate.
"Königsbecher" is a steep and very protected southern site, which is also the lowest situated of the winery. The rare composition of its soil of ferruginous calcareous marl stores the sun's heat and gives it back to the grapes like no other site of the winery.
The grapes are gently harvested by hand, with several harvesting passes to ensure that only ripe and undamaged berries reach the cellar. 50% whole grapes and 50% whole berries are fermented spontaneously in a 5000 l wooden cuvée and hand punched down. The goal is to obtain clear-fruited, elegant, persistent Pinot Noirs with a fine tannin structure. The malolactic fermentation also takes place spontaneously in the spring in wood, here the wines mature for 8-12 months.
