"From a tiny parcel within the Erste Lage. Haslen was an ancient word for hazelnut - this particular site is so dry and stony that for many years only hazelnuts grew there. High, and volcanic soil. A few hours on the skin, perty fermented and partly aged in used French barrels, for 10 months or so.
Exquisitely fragrant on the nose and then lush and creamy on the palate. The fruit is golden, copious, and yet, despite that, there is aristocratic structure and a long, fine-ground-stone, mineral line and the acidity has citric purity. Minty verbena finish. Bercher's wines seems to be shining." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 17 points
