Reichsrat von Buhl Prestige Rosé 2013
This is the house's first prestige sparkling wine. A rosé de saignée, that is, extracted from the juices, gently extracted. Pure Pinot Noir, aged in stainless steel and 500 liter wooden barrels and matured on the lees for 68 months traditionally in the bottle. It really contains the very first grapes that Mathieu Kauffmann, former cellar master of Champagne Bollinger, read. It was only disgorged in May 2017 and bottled without dosage. I don't think I need to mention what comparison is being sought here. This is the company's prestige sparkling wine project and, with Aldingers Brut Nature, the top of German sparkling wines to date. The Prestige Brut smells extremely fine of raspberry, a little red pepper. On top is a delicate brioche note from the long aging. The delicate and small bubbles float above the palate. An extremely fine, spicy and subtly red-fruity sparkling wine. I am thrilled! A new cult wine is created here, which shows what would be possible with the greatest care and patience in the sparkling wine sector in Germany.
