A substitute for burgundy
For those seeking alternatives to the ever more expensive Pinot Noir from Burgund, I would strongly recommend this wine. Although still quite young the Sasbach Limburg would pair very well with braised beef, venison or a Coq au vin,
Open at least an hour in advance, this wine has a translucent, pinot red, aromatic nose with restrained red fruit, violet and spices. On the palate red fruit, a light gamey element, spices, vivacious acidity and a strong tannic backbone, the barrique is now quite well integrated. Similiar to the reds of Corton. For under 25,00€, a bargain.
