German champagne

German champagne is prepared in the method of ‘bottle fermentation’ similar to the traditional method of French Champagne and matured for at least 9 to 12 months.

Usually it is a Cuvée (a mixture of grapes from different vineyards) that consists of selected fruits. The most famous grapes that are typical to Germany are Riesling, Grauburgunder or Silvaner, which we introduce in our first selection for the Asian market as it is exactly what makes German champagne versatile in taste and simply unique.

We recommend drinking German champagne at a temperature of 8°C.

   
2006 Grauburgunder Brut

2006 Grauburgunder Brut

A vintage champagne following the tradition of bottle fermentation. Grauburgunder Brut is an exceptional fruity wine with a fine sparkling mousseux (frothy bubbly). Its golden yellow color and subtle nutty and spicy flavors dominate this extraordinary German champagne. Its mousseux is kind of delicate, but has at the same time an ample body which ends creamy toffee. It is superb in its finesse and elegance.

   

2006 Grauburgunder Brut

2006 Silvaner Brut

A great specialty of modern culture in German champagne preparation. It is traditionally fermented in the bottle and rotated by hand. In taste, it is clearly influenced by the Franconian limestone and yet has a fine apricot aroma which combines sensuality, pleasure, and freshness.

Pierre brut

Pierre Brut (Limited Edition)

Bassermann-Jordan´s 2007 Pierre brut is an absolute highly sophisticated German champagne. It got its name from the founder of the wine estate and describes the cream of the culture of German champagne. In 2007, there were only 7800 bottles available and usually exclusively for e.g. German Government or German companies like Deutsche Bank. The Pierre is a cuvee made from different burgundy wines and chardonnay, prepared according to the classical method of champagne preparation. The mousseux is like a dream and the red berry flavour is irresistible.

"His Riesling and Pinot Noirs are now regularly among the Pfalz's finest, especially from their “Grosses Gewächs” sites of Reiterpfad, Mandelgarten and Idig". (Stephen Brook, Decanter)

"Almost without exception, the "Grosse Gewächse" from the Pfalz deserve this name here a new category of great wines has clearly emerged. Strict selection creates wine styles with striking expressiveness whilst at the same time encouraging producers to maximize quality."
