Rudolf Furst, 2013 Centgrafenberg Spatburgunder
“Rudolf Furst is an acknowledged Pinot magician in Germany.…” - Jancis Robinson MW, November 2011
“This 18 ha estate in Bürgstadt is where some of the best Franconian wines are produced, especially the Burgundy style Spätburgunders (rightly regarded as the finest in Germany).” - Hugh Johnson, Wineguide 2012
Arguably the greatest producer of Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) in Germany, the wines of Rudolf Fürst have received critical acclaim both domestically and internationally. They are at the forefront of pushing the quality and reputation of Pinot Noir from Germany and proving that it can considered among the best in the world. Located in the Franken, focusing on vineyards in Centgrafenberg. The wines show texture, body, fruit and structure that reflect strongly a Burgundian influence on the wines. Recent developments in the winery have been steadily improving the quality and complexity of the wines as the responsibility shifts from father to son.
