2015 Nelles Frühburgunder -B- Heimersheimer Landskrone GG
The blue Frühburgunder is a descendant (mutation) of the blue Spätburgunder and is one of the oldest European vines.
Today, the cultivation is limited to the German viticulture and is stocked with 99 ha, of which 26 ha are in the Ahr valley.
The very low and uncertain yields do not allow an economic cultivation. However, since we would like to preserve this old variety for the next generations because of its special character, the Frühburgunder is still cultivated in our winery.
The Frühburgunder always brings us colour-intensive, strong, expressive wines with a velvety character. It is the feminine type, whereas the Spätburgunder shows more of the masculine side.
This wine has been stored in barriques for almost 1 year and is the right companion to game, braised meat and wild mushrooms.
