What Karo and Max from Makalié say:
20 kilometers south of the Ölberg is our top location in the direct transition to the Black Forest up to an altitude of approx. 400 meters: the Römerberg in Badenweiler. The altitude and the cool fall winds in the evening from the Black Forest give the wine a noticeable freshness. The exciting, barren, very stony terroir forces the vines to root deeply and thus creates an enormously gripping dialogue with intense Pinot fruit, herbs and saltiness. It is full-bodied and dense on the palate without being opulent. Intense dark cherry and currant fruit with some forest soil, paired with chalky grip and a straightforward, elegant style. Finely spicy, fresh, with a powerful aftertaste.
This high end Pinot Noir was aged for 18 months in old burgundy barrels and needs air and time before drinking.
