A stalwart of Franconian wine, and again, a fascinating contrast with the reds from Rainer Schnaitmann – these are more Burgundian and polished in style.

92-93+ pts, Stephan Reinhardt, WA

"The 2018 Bürgstadter Berg Spätburgunder includes grapes of the grands crus Centgrafenberg and Hundsrück and opens with a more toasty/oaky bouquet of super ripe and juicy cherries. Silky textured, very intense and also powerful on the palate, this is a big and tight, firmly structured and rather tannic Pinot that has been aged in 25% new barriques. This is a charming, even smooth and sweetish Pinot trio from the Centgrafenberg and at least 35% Hundsrück. Terribly fresh, salty and tensioned. Great aging potential and pretty close to the GG level. Tasted as a barrel sample in January 2020. To be bottled in April this year."


17.5pts, Michael Schmidt, Jancisrobinson.com

"The Bürgstadter Berg impresses with a complex composition of all things woodland, from leaves to earth and undergrowth, but also shows its fruitier side with cherry and dark plum. White pepper and cedar spice round off the fragrance. On the palate, finely grained tannins allow plenty of room for a juicy expression of sweet fruit, with spicy and smoky nuances adding a certain piquancy to the finish. Elegant and surprisingly mellow for a baby Spätburgunder. "
