2004 Kirschgarten Spätburgunder GG

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 08 "Germany 2006 by Joel Payne · Januar 2008

Knipser, Laumersheim:

Justly known for their reds in Germany, Werner and Volker Knipser generally release their wines a year later than do their neighbors, which is why the 2004s are shown here. Their whites have become much better over the past few vintages. Always pushing quality to the maximum, the family left numerous vineyards unharvested at the end of 2006. "We played poker and lost," said son Stephan. "As we only want perfect grapes, it was no longer even worth the effort to go through the last ten acres." For that reason, the family made no Grosses Gewächs in 2006, but instead blended their two top sites into the Kalkmergel described below.

2004 Laumersheim Kirschgarten Spätburgunder trocken Grosses Gewächs (94/100):

Full ruby. Smoky aromas of blackcurrant, hazelnut, smoky bacon fat and rose hip. The palate boasts bright, lush berry fruit, sweet spicy tannins and near perfect balance. A classically structured wine with enormous depth and outstanding length."
