Streamlined 2010s

At the Badische Weinmesse, Baden's premier annual wine fair, one of the nice discoveries I made were the 2010 Pinot Blancs and Gris. A lot of them were noticeably slimmer than previous vintages. The same applies to other regions like the Pfalz - which brings me smoothly to the following short notes.

Weingut Philipp Kuhn, Weisser Burgunder "Vom Kalksteinfels" 2010, Pfalz
Lovely little bubbles of CO2. Apricot on the nose. Blossomy and some melony notes. Very attractive. Slimline but retaining substance on the palate with further yellow fruit accents and a slight caramelly hint. Noticeable minerally tang on the finish.


  1. I have had good luck with Kuhn before, and this sounds exactly like a wine for me. At some point I will have to resupply as I am running short on Pinot Blanc, so thanks for sharing this, Simon.
