Reichsrat Von Buhl Riesling Sekt Brut 2017

Pfalz, GermanyOne of the biggest boosts to quality Sekt production in Germany was the arrival at Reischrat von Buhl of ex Bollinger chef de caves, Mathieu Kauffmann, in time for the 2013 vintage. While Kauffmann has since moved on, what he set in place has continued. This 2017 Traditionelle Flaschengarung (traditional method) was from earlier picked grapes, and only the very first part of the pressing was utilized for this fizz. After a short maceration, this was fermented and rested in stainless and 2400L barrel, before moving to bottle and 20 months' rest on the lees. It was disgorged with 6 g/L RS. Tight and crisp, with lemon blossom, red apple, green apple on a pithy palate, doused with ample toast and filled with ample tight acidity. Quite accomplished, drinking very well now.Tasted: 16 June 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 70.00 private wine stores Producer: Reichsrat Von BuhlDistributors: Liberty Wine Imports
