Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The loam soil of the Pflaz region of Germany add to the very elegant Pinot Noir.
Cherry and floral aromas swirl in the glass and pull through to a vanilla cherry finish. Just enough tartness to pair perfectly with a variety of cheese and charcuterie boards.
Enjoy now or lay down for a few more years.
Tasted October 2019.
Eugen Altschuh 2017 Pinot Noir is a Pfalz Qualitätswein, vibrant with bright red berry, fresh cherry, with cedar and oak spice flavours on the palate. Enjoy now with fricassee rabbit. - Community Wine Reviews
