2019 Max Sein Wein Rouge Nu, Franconia, Germany


Max Sein Wein works on 3.5 ha all organically farmed. The Rouge 2018 is mainly composed of Meunier and a small percentage of Pinot Noir. Showing so much complexity, mushroom and forest floor notes, riper, lush fruit, and a mesmerising, hauntingly long finish. Meunier is often overlooked as a variety, and in France and Germany used as a blend in Sekt or Champagnes, but many growers have been giving Meunier the centrestage and making it the main star of wines.  This red is a great representation of the variety.
