May Double Header: Diel and Baum-Barth



A double-header here, partly because I’m getting backed up on tasting reports, and partly because I like the implied contrast between a Pinot Noir newbie and one of the early originals, i.e., Diel, who were among the first to make ambitious Spätburgunder in Germany.


The 2024 Diel report is truncated by what they actually sent me. There is much more to the winery than these six wines, obviously, but I think I’ll need to go there to re-encounter the entire range.


I was really pleased and quite encouraged by the newcomer, Baum-Barth, from Ingelheim. I think the “state of the art” for German Pinot Noir is high enough to ease the pain of Burgundy prices, and I hope these remarkable young men find a U.S. importer quickly.
