Tasting note

2022 Markgräflich Badisches Weinhaus Weißburgunder Bodensee 'Edition Schloss Salem'

Clear, clean appearance. Some CO2 bubbles are visible in the glass. I can imagine this was added on purpose to freshen the wine up a little, although I do not know this for a fact. Golden yellow colour. Ripe white fruits, pear and red apples on the nose. Also floral aromas. Overall, the bouquet is surprisingly nice. In the mouth, the wine is rather slender. Low acidity, almost non-existent, and subdued fruit. Nashi pear, just not very prominent. Somewhat watered down on the taste. Accordingly, the finish is (too) short.

Drink through 2024.

82Wines with a DM81 to DM83 rating are -- to different extents -- just slighly below average. That means they have no technical flaws. These wines, however, are typically one-dimensional, short in taste, or lack balance. Insofar, there might be something that I just didn't like while tasting, such as a below-average tanning structure or an acidity that isn't integrated very well. In WSET terms, wines with a DM82 rating will usually have a 0.5 WSET rating, just short of a 1.0 rating.

0.5Wines with a 0.5 WSET rating are on the lower end of 'average'. In the WSET scoring system, where we consider balance (B), intensity (I), length (L) and complexity (C), these wines managed to get at least a half point in one of these four categories. In terms of my personal rating system, wines with a WSET score of 0.5 tend to get around 80 to 82 DM points.
/ 4.0
1Wines with a rating of 1 star are below average in their peer group, slightly disappointing.

Jasper Morris of inspired me to use his 'Five Star Scale' in my tasting notes, too. The limitation of the standard 100-point scale is that in certain appellation hierarchies, such as Burgundy village versus premier cru, the lower-end wines will typically score less than the wines higher up the hierarchy. The five star scale therefore wants to compare a wine to its peers from the same category. It allows for very well-made wines to stand out.
