Gernot Heinrich Pinot Noir Dorflagen 2017 (Certified Organic)

91 pts. Wine Enthusiast

Among all grape varieties, it is only Pinot Noir that intrinsically possesses beauty through its gentle nature or even supposed fragility. Weightless concentration and effortless energy, like a perpetual motion machine. Superb sound quality at low volume. Multifaceted, red-berried fruit is reflected in eternal volition like a fanciful peacock’s tail spread in a hall of mirrors. Its supple, fine-grained tannins achieve vitality through a friendly shove of invigorating acid, hoisting sails with a svelte, defined body toward unrepentant wine enjoyment. This 2017 Pinot Noir has the linearity of an architect’s ruler paired with the life-affirming sassiness of Ella Fitzgerald. Its inalienable transparency embodies unbridled, honest drinking pleasure.
