Boeckel 2021 Pinot Noir Oberpfoeller ORGANIC

Pinot Noir has become increasingly important to cellar-master, Thomas Boeckel, and it is clear that he has grand aspirations for the grape, perhaps inspired by the examples of Baden, grown a few kilometers to the east. Climate change has certainly enabled him to conjure more sheer fruit sweetness from his grapes than was the case in years past. Oberpfoeller is a lieu-dit endowed with clay-rich soils, lending power and structure to the hauntingly cherry-scented fruit. Élevage in barriques (just 10% new) adds spice and shape.
