Bernhard Huber’s professional career and his connection to the land are closely linked to the production of Pinot Noir, known locally as Spätburgunder. The Baden region has a long tradition of cultivating this noble red grape variety. As early as the 13th century, the Cistercian monks who dedicated themselves to research and microzoning noticed the strong pedoclimatic analogy between Burgundy and this German region, located between Alsace, the Rhine and the Black Forest. From the earliest times, Bernhard understood the importance of these historical roots and started a project to restructure local viticulture, which was still too much anchored to the cooperative realities of the decades preceding the war. Today, Bernhard’s wife Barbara and son Julian produce 5 different varieties of wine, among which the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir stand out, which have been defined as “the best in Germany and among the best ever” by Jancis Robinson .
After the delicate pressing of the grapes, the must is fermented in oak barrels at a controlled temperature, before being bottled and subjected to secondary fermentation in the bottle, which gives the wine its characteristic sparkling notes. The Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature 2013 was left to rest on the lees for at least 36 months before disgorgement.
It has a brilliant straw yellow color, with a fine and persistent perlage. On the nose, aromas of green apple, citrus and floral notes emerge, accompanied by a delicate hint of bread crust. In the mouth it is fresh and sapid, with a pleasant acidity.
Particularly suitable for pairing with fish and shellfish dishes. Its elegant structure and long, savory and mineral finish make it a perfect wine to sip as an aperitif or to celebrate special occasions.
