An expressive, well structured wine for medium term aging.

2009 Weingut Robert Konig Assmannshäuser Höllenberg Spätburgunder Auslese trocken

Burgundy on the nose, restrained but high quality oak. Silky on palate with sophisticated tannins, refreshing acidity followed by medium+ body and slightly burning alcohol. Delivers fresh red fruit, backed by chocolate, coffee notes that reveal heavy toasting of barrels. Has the potential to age due to its dense and concentrated structure. An expressive, well structured wine for medium term ageing. Ioannis Karakasis
