Bernhard 2019 Riesling Sekt Brut
The Germans drink more bubbly per capita than anyone else on earth, but little of it is as fine and delicious as this one. Most producers farm out its elaboration to specialist houses, but Hartmut has long been a master of the champagne method and makes his Sekts himself. This bottling was on the lees for some 30 months, and the luxurious dosage is a Beerenauslese! We skipped 2018, whose power did not serve the Sekt genre well, we thought, and waited for this more moderate and intensely aromatic version instead.
