Sherbety, orangey, half-dry foodie’s dream-wine with a modest 11.8g/l residual sugar, high 7’s for acidity and 12% alcohol. Most of the fruit came from Meddersheimer Altenberg for this blend, which the estate touts as their most accessible by-the-glass choice. The oeschle levels (ripeness at harvest) are 90+ which is well into Spatlese level, so there is nice length and generosity here. Superb value.
100% Pinot Blanc. We are fans of this estate - among the best producers of Pinot Noir (Spatburgunder) in Germany. This is a lovely example of the charms of Pinot Blanc, made by the young Friedrich Wilhelm, building on the strong reputation that his father, also Friedrich, established over the last four decades. Although a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc is structurally close to Chardonnay. This is fairly rich, with an expressive yellow fruit & citrus nose, and a palate that is layered and tense with acidity. Situated at the very southern end of the Pfalz, this estate actually owns a significant portion of vineyard land across the border in Alsace-which they are allowed to label legally as German wine. The whole operation feels like a hybrid of French technique with German tradition. Young Fritz Becker gleefully experiments with French vs German clones of Pinor Noir and French vs German barrels-including numerous casks he picked up (used) from Romanée-Conti and Comtes Lafon!

One of the oldest & most prestigious estates in Germany. The estate was officially founded in 1335! Gloriously austere & ageworthy.
