What a beautiful, delicately earthy pinot noir, and it’s only just beginning to open up. Tons of red-berry character and a subtle, leafy touch (from stems?). Concentrated, highly structured and elegant. Impressive as it is now, this has great potential and merits at least a year or two in the cellar. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but better after 2021. ... More details

Winery
The characters of complanted BURLENBERG come almost exclusively from its terroir of silicified oolithic crinoidal limestone, close to those found in Côtes de Nuits (Clos de Bèze - Bajocian crinoidal limestone). This hard limestone forms a degraded limestone soil, dirty yellow, thin, light, clay-free, low fertility, limited water and rich in limestone, gravel and scree granite. This floor accommodates beautifully Pinot Noir where it is conferred a marked color, qualitative tannin, a certain virility and a great ability to be aged.

Region: Alsace

Step into any good wine store, and you'll easily be able to recognize the Alsatian wines, due to their slender, Germanic bottles which contain wines made from one or more of the grapes native to the region. The wines of Alsace are well known around the world, and for centuries they have been renowned for their quality and fascinating features. The grapes allowed to be used in Alsace wines are carefully overseen by the French government, and only nine different fine varietals are permitted to be grown within the vineyards of Alsace. Most commonly, wineries process Pinot Noir and Riesling varietal grapes for their wines, although it is also common to see a blend of other Germanic and French native grapes listed on the bottles.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
