Alexander Pflüger assumed the reins from his father in 2010 and hasn’t changed much – it had been organic since 1989 and farmed biodynamically since 2008 so a real trend-setter in the region. It’s clear the family have a passion for the local terroir and the way that it is expressed in their wines. Alex is a member of the VDP ‘Academy’ of promising young things and already uses their labelling system of Gütswein, Ortswein and Lagenwein.
The Bundsandstein (Gütswein since you asked) is a remarkable value, hugely popular Riesling. It’s aromatic and acidic, like Riesling ought to be, but packed with fruit that renders it both simultaneously archetypal and exceptionally user-friendly. The Dürkheimer Michelsberg is a Lagenwein (soon to be a Grosses Gëwachs) and it shows in the greater degree of concentration. All of the Pinots are remarkable – nothing but nothing from Burgundy can match the value on offer from Alex Pflüger – bargain hunters take note!
