Overview

Rüeget is a parcel of 30-year-old Pinot Noir situated in a small hollow at an elevation of 500m on a hill near the village of Elfingen. Rüeget tends towards a high-toned, floral, and delicate expression of Pinot Noir with nervy and bright cherry fruit – a classic Fricktal style of Pinot in comparison to his Pinots from Schenkenbergertal.
