Is it possible that Germany’s future might begin to look (as the world’s climate-change challenge grows) a little more burgundian? We have to ask the question this year, as the two German wines making it into our top 50 Best In Show selection are not classic Rieslings, but a Chardonnay from Baden and a Pinot from the Ahr. Look out for cream and lime on the nose and a fresh, pithy style on the palate of this close-textured, long-flavoured wine. There is remarkable restraint and refinement in this fine-dining white, and it’s a wine which anyone running a blind-tasting competition might want to reserve for a fiendishly difficult tie-breaking finale.
