Gästehaus Klaus Erfort *** – Perfection in Saarbrücken

IMG_2994

Gästehaus Klaus Erfort is maybe not located in the middle of the most fantastic neighbourhood of Saarbrücken. But, stuck in between a tenement and a gas station one finds a beautiful white mansion with a modern extension on the side accomodating the kitchen. From the street, one can observe the chefs through a glass window. Once we passed the entrance, we were directed to the back of the mansion where a quite unique terrasse is located.

Weingut Daniel, Toque Jondo 2003, Geisenheim/Pfalz

„Toque Jondo“ heisst auf Deutsch „tiefes Spiel“ und ist eine Cuvée aus verschiedenen Rotweinsorten. In der Farbe ist der Wein dunkel und elegant. In der Nase überwiegt ein schöner Kirschduft begleitet von einer leichten Gewürznote. Eine dezente Säure im Hintergrund stützt die Frucht. Der Gesamteindruck am Gaumen ist der eines gut ausbalancierten, samtigen Rotweins mit einer angenehmen Länge.
Note: 88 Read the rest of this entry »
