Pinot Noir ‘Caroline’, Schlossgut Diel
Only about 3,000 bottles of this are produced annually. Open top fermentation is the preferred method. Mostly all 2nd use barriques are used for aging.
Cask-sample; absolutely no new oak, yet oak still shows in the slender ’13 body; cool smokiness and blueberries; it’s along
the masculine Volnay line, the part near Meursault. The wine is, let’s say, not without tannin. Sinewy, not seductive; built like a
long-distance runner. Here Caroline is making a stylistic turn, toward more fruit and less oak, and yet this wine has usually been
highly sophisticated and not very splashy. – Terry Theise
