Weingut Julg, Pinot Noir Sonnenberg 2019
A complex juicy wine bursting with energy, showing lifted aromas of strawberry and blueberry, a delicate smoky bacon note and a rich meaty note. The tannins are soft and integrated with a fruity, powerful finish and a fine chalky mineral note.
The shifting frontier between Germany and France has resulted in many Schweigen-Rechtenbach growers owning vineyards on both sides of the border. Just as confusing is the expansion of the commune’s best vineyards, the four-hectare Sonnenberg, to a Grosslage, meaning that almost all the wines from the town can be labelled with its name even when they are miles away. 20 year old vines, blend of limestone and red sandstone soil, selected neutral yeasts, 14 days fermentation in tank and transferred to large, neutral wood to rest for 6 months. Bottled without filtration
Weingut Julg is a stone’s throw from the French border, and half its vineyards are in Alsace. A further French connection is the young winemaker Johannes’s spell under Thierry Brouin at Domaine des Lambrays, which taught him to focus on complexity and elegance rather than obvious primary fruit. He also spent seven years working at top German estates, including Weingut Keller, before returning home.
