Schwarzriesling is a somewhat confusing name, as the grape has nothing to do with riesling. Indeed; it is a burgundertype, which people work with a lot in this part of Germany. In France, this grape is called pinot meunier, yes, one of the three most commonly used grape varieties in Champagne. However, traditionally seen there as a workhorse; chardonnay and pinot noir are rated higher and used more in the higher segment. In more modest champagnes, on the other hand, a relatively large amount of meunier is used. And maybe that will be even more since good winemakers do see the potential of this grape. Drautz-Able does that with this extra brut, one of the driest type of sparkling wines. Beautiful colour, where the aging can be seen, but certainly in the nose also notes of red fruit. A mild bubble and long aftertaste complete the picture; this sekt puts many champagnes in the shade.
