After 37 months en tirage, Dautel's 2016 Pinot Brut nature opens with a clear, very delicate and finely aromatic bouquet with very fine Pinot and brioche notes and again (like the Riesling brut) the purity, finesse and elegance of Champagne. On the palate, this is an iodine-tinged and bone-dry yet highly finessed sparkling wine, the finest I have ever tasted from this region so far. The wine is pure, refined and transparent on the delicate and weightless yet intense and seriously structured palate. I am pretty speechless about this quality that Chris Dautel already wanted to serve me last year but got my skeptical "no, thanks." German Sekt can be terribly ordinary, yet this is one of the finest sparkling wines you can find in Germany! Tasted from lot L004-20 in June 2020.

Varietal: Champagne Blend

Whilst Champagne sparkling wines are most commonly made with a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grape varietals, there are actually seven fine grape varietals allowed by French wine law for inclusion in the wines of this region. These include Arbanne, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and and Petit Meslier alongside the others, although these four are being used less and less in the modern age. Champagnes are normally blended wines, although the popularity of single variety 'blanc de blanc' Champagnes made solely with Chardonnay grapes, and 'blanc de noir' wines made only with Pinot Noir varietal grapes are becoming more and more popular. The blending process found in most Champagnes aims to take the finest points of each grape varietal and bring them together to produce spectacular, strong yet balanced results in the bottle.

Country: Germany

As in many Old World countries, the rise of viticulture in Germany came about as a result of the Roman Empire, who saw the potential for vine cultivation in the vast flatlands around the base of the Rhine valley. Indeed, for over a thousand years, Germany's wine production levels were enormous, with much of the south of the country being used more or less exclusively for growing grapes. Over time, this diminished to make way for expanding cities and other types of industries, but Southern Germany remains very much an important wine region within Europe, with many beautifully balanced and flavorful German wines being prized by locals and international wine lovers alike. The hills around Baden-Baden and Mannheim are especially noteworthy, as these produce the high end of the characteristic semi-sweet white wines which couple so perfectly with German cheeses and pickled vegetables. However, all of Germany's wine producing regions have something special and unique to offer, and are a joy to explore and experience.
