2017 Jülg Spätburgunder Kalkmergel Pinot Noir
Once only a white wine stronghold, Germany has leapt ahead with its reds in recent decades, climate change catapulting its pinot noir to fame. And with Burgundy beyond reach of us mortals, alternative sources need celebrating!
Jülg’s vineyards tiptoe the line with French Alsace, with half their holdings actually south of the border. With its richer style pinot fruit offering great value, pick up a bottle for some frontier hopping fun.
