John Gilman - View from the Cellar:
"The 2010 Burgel Spatburgunder was showing just a touch of new wood still at the time of my visit, but as the wine is raised in only twenty percent new barrels (all the wood for the two Pinot Noir Grosses Gewachs are sourced from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti- so the provenance of the wood is impeccable) and I am sure that the wood will disappear seamlessly into the wine with a bit more age. The wine offers up an outstanding bouquet of cherries, a touch of strawberries, roses, cocoa, beautifully complex soil tones and a dollop of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, transparent and intensely flavored, with lovely mid-palate depth, tangy acids and a bit of chewy tannin to resolve on the well-balanced, long and focused finish. Lovely wine. 2017-2035+."
