Burgunder Cuvée 2015 from Georgium
80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Blanc in the classic Burgundy Cuvée from Längsee in Carinthia. Carefully farmed biodynamically, the young vines grow in a paradise of blossoming biodiversity, surrounded by ancient pear fruit trees, from which Marcus Gruze also makes sparkling wine. In complete contrast to the neighbouring conventional wineries, Marcus Gruze pursues a decelerated way of winemaking - the wines are allowed to mature in the cellar for a very long time before they are released. Extended spontaneous fermentation on the skins, followed by gentle pressing, where the wines are then aged for 12 to 48 months - depending on the vintage - in large oak barrels. The Burgundy Cuvée 2015 seems wonderfully balanced, complex and is somewhat more aromatic compared to the 13. The age is noticeable in the ripe aromatics, but on the palate it does not feel tired at all, this slight citric, vital nerve provides liveliness and also pull to the palate. Ripe apples, pears and honey. The Burgundy Cuvée 2015 is bottled unfiltered and without added sulphur.
