2022 Müller-Catoir Haardter Herzog Weissburgunder Erste Lage

$34.99
2022 Müller-Catoir Haardter Herzog Weissburgunder Erste Lage
An outrageous deal from this much-loved address, Muller-Catoir is one of our favorite producers in Pfalz. Founded in 1744 between the Rhine River and the Haardt mountains, Muller-Catoir makes an exceptional range of wines. Our top picks have always been their drier creations like the Trocken or GG's. Today, we have a rare selection, and while we typically offer the Riesliogn here, the Weissburgunder or Pinot Blanc, this vintage is truly exceptional. This is an extraordinary example of Pinot Blanc and is decisively Burgundian in style, as James Suckling notes in his review, as one of the top examples of the Weissburgunder ever. Sourced from the Herzog vineyard in Haardt, on classic Haardtsandstein soils, which are red and yellow sandstone. The vines here are on the younger side but bring tremendous energy to the wine and have been tended organically since their planting. While the Pinot Blanc here can show some tropical notes of pineapple, there is a string of classicism that weaves it all together with the impressive dynamic of acidity and richness and even some savory notes that further amplify the complexity of this wine. Something to pair with anything from roasted chicken to seared scallops, this is a magnificent example of German Pinot Blanc and a rare find from Muller-Catoir with very little imported to the USA.


James Suckling 97 points (Best Weissburgunder in its Class 2023) "Here is a genuinely Burgundian-style German pinot blanc with a very complex nose of ripe pear, brioche, toasted baguette plus notes of honeysuckle and Amalfi lemon. Stunning elegance, the creamy and minerally aspects of the wine precisely matched to one another. Very pure finish that stretches off into the distance."
