"Women bring a certain elegance into wine and there is space for all of us", Coralie de Boüard, manager of Château la Fleur de Boüard told me in an interview. My friend Victoria Lergenmüeller is a winemaker of her own winery called Sankt Annaberg in Germany, moreover in the renowned wine region Pfalz. This classy, sassy and a little bad assey women does not only radiate elegance, but she also has a great sense of humor.
Last week she presented her wine in a fun wine club (Wine About) at our business school for wine & spirits and discreetly blew our minds.
She grows her dry Riesling Burrweiler Schäwer, on the only slate plateau in the Pfalz region, which creates an amazing longevity in her wine.
When she poured her wine into my glass, I literally started to drool. It looked so fresh, cleqn and crisp. Like opening a German chalet window on a cold winter day. Although when I sipped it, it tasted like spring. It slightlty prickled on my palette, showcasing concentrated aromas of minerality with a firm and rich body. I asked her how she got that lovely prickle into her wine and she said it's natural CO2, which develops when absolutely no oxygen gets into the wine. It takes a lot to shut me up, but this wine did the magic. I just stood there and sipped. And she poured. And I sipped some more. And she poured some more. A saying popped into my mind: "Friends don't let friends wine alone."
