Supple dark fruit and a pinch of sweet, green herbs tickle the nose. On the palate it is strong and grippy with appetizing “cool” black tea tannins and lots of fruity forest berry aromas and spicy notes. Wonderful freshness and a long finish offer great drinking pleasure. The structure, the density of the fruit and the freshness underline the great potential of this wine.
Baden is situated in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg, bordering France to the west and Switzerland to the south. It stretches from the northern part of the Black Forest to the northern outskirts of the city of Basel.
Baden is known for its vibrant wine culture, and various wine festivals and events take place throughout the year. These festivals provide an excellent opportunity for locals and visitors alike to taste and enjoy the region’s wines.
Climate & Terroir
The region benefits from a relatively mild climate, thanks to its proximity to the Rhine River and the shelter provided by the Black Forest to the east. The diverse terroir of the region, including various soil types and microclimates, allows for the cultivation of a wide range of grape varieties.
Premium Wine Range
The premium wine range are coming from carefully selected vineyards. These vineyards may have specific characteristics, such as unique soil types, optimal microclimates, and well-established vines, which contribute to the wines’ exceptional quality. There wines are aged for an extended period to develop complexity, depth, and character with various aging techniques, such as aging in oak barrels, to impart additional flavors and textures to the wines.
It takes a lot of courage to plant Cabernet Franc and Merlot in the Markgräflerland, as the usual vineyards are limited to the Burgundian varieties and Chasselas. That’s why, 15 years ago, the idea of planting Mediterranean vines here was met with wide scepticism. For quite some time now the Cuvée Felix stood out as one of the flagships of this winery. Over the years this noble Bordeaux blend, garnered a solid growing appraisal.
Ideal drinking temperature 18 °C.
