2016 PINOT NOIR Herrenstück [13 17] (KOCH40216A)
There is fresh cherry fruit with a hint of cassis on the nose; on the palate it is smooth and fresh, with lots of energy, lightness and intensity.
2016 PINOT NOIR* [15 17] (KOCH44216A)
Bright and spicy, with fresh crushed red fruit and vibrant mineral flavours.
2015 PINOT NOIR* [14 16] (KOCH44215A)
Rich and spicy, with cherry and raspberry fruit, this has good energy, an appealing density and a smooth long finish. Drink 2018 ' 2028
2014 PINOT NOIR* [19 15] (KOCH44214A)
Rich and spicy, with warm rounded red fruit and a hint of earth. There is a delightful purity and energy; and it is silky all the way to a smooth long finish.From the heart of the Kaiserstuhl in Baden, where loess covered volcanic soils give ripe wines that can all to easily become fruit bombs, but not in the hands of Holger Koch, whose focus is fresh, balanced wines with elegance and longevity. The 2014 is on perfect form now: there is spicy red fruit, a rich textured middle and a smooth and fresh finish of great persistence.
2016 PINOT NOIR*** [16 17] (KOCH46216A)
From the estate's best site, the Halbuck, a terraced vineyard with poor loess soils on volcanic rock: grapes ripen more slowly here than in other vineyards on the estate. Cool, crushed raspberry fruit on the nose is joined on the palate by fresh cherry and fine clean juicy minerality; the finish is long, intense and meltingly smooth.
2015 PINOT NOIR*** [18 16] (KOCH46215A)
From the estate's best site, the Halbuck, a terraced vineyard with poor loess soils on volcanic rock, where grapes ripen more slowly than in its other vineyards. There is 50% of new oak here, easily handled by the dense ripe fruit. 10% whole-bunch fermentation gives a little lift to the lively, meltingly fine strawberry flavours, and there are fine silky tannins and a vibrant minerality running through to a very long finish. Drink 2021 ' 2031
2016 PINOT NOIR RESERVE LO2/18 (KOCH50216A)
The top selection from the Halbuck vineyard. There is more whole-bunch fermentation and more new wood than in Holger Koch's other wines, and it is built to last. It has all the requirements: bags of fruit, vibrant acidity and smooth minerality all in perfect balance, leading to a very long finish.
2015 PINOT NOIR RESERVE [LOS1] (KOCH50215A)
The top selection from the Halbuck vineyard. 300 bottles made. 30% whole-bunch fermentation and 100% new wood give a vibrant dense wine with a big tannic structure, lively red fruits and great density. The finish is smooth and long. Drink 2021 ' 2031
2014 PINOT NOIR RESERVE (KOCH50214A)
The top selection from the Halbuck vineyard. 300 bottles made. Not tasted, but a tiny quantity is available.
2012 PINOT NOIR RESERVE (KOCH50212A)
From the best part of the best site, the Halbuck, planted with Burgundian clones. Extremely dense, very tight at this stage, but lifted by fresh dark fruit and balanced by very fine, silky tannins and a gentle minerality. The finish is very long. Needs some years in the cellar.
2016 WEISSBURGUNDER Scheibenhardt [09 17] (KOCH22216A)
2017 WEISSBURGUNDER*** [10 18] (KOCH24217A)
The warm stony soil of the Eichbuck gives a ripe, pure wine with a playful mineral note, delicate acidity and a gentle elegant presence all the way to the long fresh finish.
2016 GRAUBURGUNDER Eichbuck [05 17] (KOCH30216A)
