Chat Sauvage Pinot Noir Rheingau 2018

Chat Sauvage is, in short, equal to big ambitions and small amounts. The owner, Günter Schulz, is a rich man from Hamburg with a great fondness for Burgundy, who during a visit to the Rheingau in 1992 got the idea to make a wine that was as good as the best from Burgundy. In order for such a daring piece to succeed, Günter Schulz was fully aware that nothing could be saved, and that therefore only the best vineyards were interesting for such a prestigious project. However, it is rare that this type of field goes on sale, and it was therefore not until the year 2000 that he bought his first plot on the vineyard Johannisberger Hölle. Since then, it has grown to 7.5 hectares spread over six vineyards, of which 60% are grown Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 5% Riesling. At Chat Sauvage's vineyards, the yield is kept down to approx. 1 kg of grapes per vine. You are extremely selective about which grapes go in the must, so you sort by hand both at the actual picking and on arrival at the winery. After pressing, the first fermentation is carried out on steel tanks, after which the wine - both the green and the blue grapes - is placed on French oak barrels for 18 months, while the malolactic fermentation takes place.
