Importer notes: "The Klingenberger 'Grand Cru' shows a basket of red fruit along with pepper and spice. Lots of power and noblesse with cherries, raspberries and roses. Reminds of superb Vosne-Romanée or great Volnay. Fermented in new oak with 60% on the stems. Only 300 sixpacks produced. 13.5% alcohol. The Fürst family has been involved in winemaking since 1638... Since the 2007 vintage, Paul Fürst works with his son Sebastian who completed his Oenological studies at Geisenheim and as well learned from top estates in Burgundy, South Africa and Germany... The estate's primary holdings are in the Bürgstadter Centrafgrafenberg, Klingenberger Schlossberg and Volkacher Karthäuser (Franken). The soil profiles are weathered red sandstone laced with loess loam and limestone (primarily in Volkach). The vineyards are planted 54% to Pinot Noir, 18% Riesling, 16% Pinot Blanc, and 12% Frühburgunder (a mutation of Pinot Noir) and other varieties. Paul makes some of the world's finest Pinot Noirs and possibly the world's finest Frühburgunder. Trademarks of Fürst's wines are their incredible finesse and refinement. Paul was chosen 'Winemaker of the Year' in the 2003 German Wine Guide -- Gault-Millau."

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 90 points by Fine Wine Review: "Fürst’s 2008 Schlossberg Spätburgunder GG is pure and clear with red fruits. Ideally, age this wine several years, but it can be drunk now."
