Here we have Bibo Runge's fantastic Sekt blended with a splash of red wine to create this delicious, red-rose stained sparkler. We have no idea what it's blended with. After tasting it, every suggestion we came up with was greated by a shake of the head and an enigmatic smile from Markus Bonsels of Bibo Runge. Apparently it's a closely guarded trade secret. All we know is that the perfectly judged "splash" brings just the right amount our sweet, red summer fruits to the party without masking the quality of the Sekt it's based on.Bibo Runge
Produced by Jean-Marie Bourgeois who is rapidly achieving an international reputation as one of the leading figures in Sancerre and Pouilly Fume; this has a wonderfully concentrated smokey fruit flavour.
Dark plum, leather and delicate violet aromas, plus notes of woodsmoke and brown spice. A full, firm and ripe red with rich, powerful flavours. All balanced by ripe tannins, complex savoury notes and a long finish.
The name of this unusual Bourgogne Pinot Noir refers to the latitude of Burgundy, and it is a blend of out best Bourgogne Rouge, Cote de Nuits Village, Marsannay and Vosne-Romanee.Maison Marchand-Tawse
Pinot Noir (in Germany known as Spätburgunder) from the “Nussdorfer Bischofskreuz” site comes from roughly ffteen year old vines which are rooted in sandy clay soil. The grapes are a particularly small and loose berry variant of the classic Pinot Noir which is lower in yield but higher in quality. The use of chemicals in the vineyard is kept to a minimum and insecticides are not used. An ecological nutrient cycle is attained using green manure.
