2019 Jonas Dostert Spätburgunder, Mosel, Germany
From importer Vom Boden: The Pinot is compact and ultra-dense; dark red and black fruit, tons of spice and saturation. It is very, very inward looking, though pristine and transparent and very delicate – only 11.5%. A brilliant wine but it will need some time to unfurl. Mosel Fine Wine’s review is below.
The 2019er Spätburgunder was made along natural lines, i.e. without intervention, with 20% de-stemmed fruit and aged for 10 months in a 7-year-old barrique from Burgundy before being bottled unfiltered and with 50 mg/l of sulfur. This deep red-blue colored wine offers a stunningly fruity nose strawberry, raspberry, herbs, and spices. The wine is packed with gorgeously sweet fruits on the palate where spices play second role. The finish is silky, fruity, smooth, and incredibly long. Despite its lightness (the wine does only have 11.5% of alcohol), the wine’s precision, purity, and depth are simply superb. While enjoyable now, this wine will truly blossom after some bottle aging. What a huge success!""
