Bacharacher Kloster Furstental Sekt Brut Weingut Ratzenberger 2009

The Ratzenberger family moved to the Mittelrhein from East Germany in the 1950s, and young Jochen Ratzenberger first began to make wine in 1994. The 8-hectare estate, west and north of the town of Bacharach, includes holdings in the three steep vineyards of blue-black Devon slate: Steeger St. Jost, Posten, and Wolfshöhle. This hand-disgorged Jahrgangs und Lagensekt is produced primarily from grapes grown on the Bacharacher Kloster Furstental, a steep hillside vineyard located south of the town. The Furstental delivers steely, firm, age-worthy sparkling wine with some surprising floral delicacy, complex minerality, and a refined, lingering finish. Supremely good with crab salad, walnut oil dressings and smoked fish.
