From the Critics:
- "The 2010 Frauenberg Spatburgunder was also showing beautifully at the time of my visit, jumping from the glass in a classy melange of red and black cherries, red plums, raw cocoa, rose petals, chalky soil tones, a touch of orange zest and a stylish base of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and wonderfully complex, with a sappy core of fruit, great transparency, moderate tannins and a very long, focused and tangy finish. The wood here again needs a couple of years to fully disappear into the wine, but the depth, nascent complexity and impeccable balance here suggest that this wine will indeed be special. 2019-2040+." -
- "Keller's 2010 Spatburgunder trocken FR - from the Frauenberg - accentuates the red berry brightness, vivacity, animation, cyanic piquancy, and saliva-inducing salinity that characterized the corresponding Burgel, all features that can be seen as reflecting both his stylistic proclivities and the natural tendency of this cool, tricky vintage (when it was not harvested until the last week of October). Hints of quinine, rose hip, and crushed stone add to the interest of this sappily, penetratingly persistent Pinot that I could imagine remaining formidable for a dozen or more years." -
