Zündel Christian

Beride, Schweiz

Als Pedologe, Bodenkundler, kam Christian Zündel schon in den 70er Jahren ins Tessin, genauer in den südlichen Malcantone. 1980 produzierte er seinen ersten eigenen Wein. Seit Ende der 80er Jahre sorgt er mit seinem Paradewein Orizzonte - einer Assemblage aus Merlot und etwas Cabernet Sauvignon - regelmässig für Furore. Das stetige Streben nach Qualität und Authentizität haben Christian Zündel inzwischen zum biologischen Weinbau geführt. Christian Zündel gehört zu den besten Schweizer Weinproduzenten. Seine Weine sind über die Landesgrenzen hinaus beliebt und entsprechend rar. Seit ein paar Jahren überzeugen auch seine fantastischen Chardonnay-Weine vollends.

    From Bedigliora, Zündel's 2017 Chardonnay Coò comes to the nose like a matured Champagne when tasted from a small glass, but it's immediately open in a Bordeaux or Burgundy glass. Golden but vital in color, the 2017 Coò displays a clear, deep, intense, really complex yet very fine and mineral bouquet of buttercup, herbs, grass and stones. Exciting! Lean and elegant on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, rather ascetic and mineral Chardonnay without any sweetness or richness. Maybe you like to have it more round and rich, more oaky and powerful#yet this is Burgundian only on the nose, while it is Alpine Ticino on the palate. The wine remains lean but elegant, well-structured and fresh, and it finishes with lemon juice flavors and fine tannin grip. This is excellent in style and quality and also in the aftertaste, again with similarities to Champagne. Tasted at Brancaia in Zurich in October 2019.

    From Beride, the bright straw-yellow colored 2017 Chardonnay Velabona displays an intense yet bright and elegant bouquet with floral and herbal aromas and notes of crushed stones, white champignons and stewed apples. On the palate, this is an elegant, refined and chalky-mineral Chardonnay with great purity but remarkable concentration and juiciness on the salty, well-structured finish. Champagne sends windy greetings again here. Tasted at Brancaia in Zurich in October 2019.

    Zündel's 2016 Merlot Sass from Ronco-Castelrotto displays a dark but vital and transparent cherry color and a ripe, concentrated yet pure and fresh bouquet of dark berries with leather, licorice and vegetal notes. Intense and fleshy on the palate, this is a pure and elegant, round and aromatic Merlot with ripe and fleshy dark-cherry fruit and fine tannins from the berry skins. It is beautifully balanced and delicate, with none of the richness or sweetness of Masseto or other big, fat, important Merlots from planet wine. This is simply a new kind of red wine for Switzerland, and it's kissing the Loire rather than any other important red wine region. Great purity and very good length, always authentic and so floral.... Tasted at Brancaia in Zurich in October 2019.

    The 2017 Merlot Terraferma opens with a terribly clear and fresh bouquet of red and slightly dark berry and (frozen) cherry, with floral, earthy and alpine violet aromas. This bouquet is pure and elegant like that of a white wine. Lush, precise and elegant on the palate, this is a fruity-elegant, silky-textured, fresh and refined Merlot from the Alps. There is no oak, no extraction, no flesh#just silky and pure. This is a very delicate Merlot and a typical Zündel. Absolutely delicious, even with fish. If you like red wines from the Loire or even simply like Pinot Noir, you will possibly fall in love with this Swiss Merlot too. You should at least give her a chance. Tasted at Brancaia in Zurich in October 2019.

    Christian Zündel's recent edition of his most famous red, the 2016 Merlot Orizzonte is dark in flavors#spicy, deep and concentrated, with some chocolate notes. This 2016 is perhaps closest to wines such as Masseto and other Merlot icon wines. This one, however, is still floral and alpine, with delicate acidity and finesse as well as fine tannins, a persistent finish and good concentration. This is more juicy, less stony, and it is very long and with good tension. Tasted at Brancaia in Zurich in October 2019.
