BERGDOLT-SANKT LAMPRECHT -- 2013 Riesling Grosses Gewächs and 2012 Pinot Noir Grosses Gewächs (Pfalz)

Along with Eugen Müller, the wines of which I reviewed yesterday, Bergdolt-Sankt Lamprecht remains ridiculously underrated in the Pfalz. I’m sorry that I only have these two wines to report on from current releases.

The estate produces wine mainly from three grapes: Riesling, Pinot Blanc (Weissburugnder), and Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder). The wines from each are magnificent. The Pinot Blancs can age magnificently and come to resemble great, in some cases very great, Chablis.

One thing to note about this estate is that the non-GG wines can often be as good, and even better, than the GG’s here. (Continue reading here.)
