Friedrich Becker Sankt Paul Grosses Gewachs 2015

It is  clear in the first nose that 2015 is in the same league as the immensely large 2013, but is clearly more Burgundian. Richer in the sweet cherry. God, that's a pleasure, this sweet fruit nose. Immense red and black fruit, all on cherry, all with wonderful limestone minerality. Very dense and oppressive in this mulberry that runs alongside the cherry. Also a little liquorice, eucalyptus, a little mint. Radiant wonderful sweetness. Hopefully the mouth can hold this immense nose. The mouth is almost more grandiose than the nose. However, firmer, more gripping. A lot of graphite. The whole thing with a wonderful wooden dosage. And here again this magnificent length of limestone with salt. Lots of red cherry fruit underneath, but also plum, elderberry, and in the mouth a terrific floweriness. A lot of violets. The whole thing mixed with licorice. Long, round, soft and simply a stunner in minerality, also thanks to the fermented black horses and the sweetness of the fruit from 2015. This Sankt Paul, which I often prefer to the Kammerberg because it has more charm, is something for very big people Burgundy fans. T
