Laumersheimer Grauburgunder

Laumersheim is the village, loess the soil, Grauburgunder the grape. Here's a transcription of some almost-forgotten notes I made back in early November.

Weingut Philipp Kuhn, Grauburgunder "vom Löss" trocken, 2011, Pfalz, Germany
Almost peanut-buttery with orange glints. Smoky, nutty, melted butter, a touch of alcohol, sage and honeydew. The acidity is typically soft on the palate. Honey notes in abundance. Medium body. Eminently enjoyable but with enough interest to elevate it above everyday fare. Dry and clean on the finish.
