Friedrich Becker, Schweigener Spätburgunder, Pfalz 2018
(at London, 10 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2035
Such a well crafted wine that makes the best of a great vintage when others failed to balance power and poise. None of that here with intense red cherry, red plum and cranberry wrapped around an earthy core. Firm rounded tannins and enticing minerality provide an elegant structure. The use of oak is so subtle and well managed.
