Reichsrat Von Buhl Sekt Reserve, Pfalz, Germany

80% Weissburgunder, 20% Chardonnay. Age not known. 80% Stainless Steel, 20% Oak. 

Notes as written blind from The Big Blind Bargain Bubble Tasting.

This is impressive. Nice ripe pear, almond and yellow grapefruit. There’s some smokiness, and also some attractive creamy sourdough. Some delicacy on the palate, although it is a bit jumpy. Something savoury – oak – here? Good stuff, really well assembled. 16.5

Griesel Riesling Brut 2015

100% Riesling. Vinification in large oak.

Notes as written blind from The Big Blind Bargain Bubble Tasting.

A bit different! Bright florals, cooked lime and a sort of poached quality to the fruit. Oxidative. interesting style, maybe a touch developed? 15
