History

The story of the Bassermann-Jordan winery is the story of a family dynasty which, together with others, established and greatly influenced quality-based viticulture in Germany for almost 300 years. Each generation produced great personalities who used their intelligence, expertise and flair as well as their financial and political influence to safeguard and improve the reputation of the winery and the outstanding wines produced in the Palatinate area of Germany – until they ended up among the top echelon of the wine world.

 

As respected politicians they have contact with the most influential personalities of their times and contribute greatly to the improvement of the legal and regulatory framework concerning viticulture. As patrons of the arts, they donate valuable objects to a variety of museums and render outstanding services to preserve the cultural heritage of the Palatinate region. As scientists, they work on improving wine-growing methods and write the definitive book on the history of viticulture. As experts in viticulture, they neither spare costs nor efforts to consistently develop their skills, their knowledge and the quality of their estate.

Vineyards

The name Bassermann-Jordan has always stood for excellent locations. Our winegrowing sites in Forst, Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg cover 49 hectares and include more than 20 different single vineyards. One third are top rated vineyards such as Hohenmorgen, Kirchenstück and Jesuitengarten.

 

With a passion for research and entrepreneurial energy, with a quest for innovation and concern for the preservation of our cultural heritage, we have, for centuries, worked on cultivating methods that increase the quality of our wines. In doing so, we have always given absolute priority to the careful handling of the grapes and focused on selection involving painstaking manual work. The result is individual wines full of character.

 

This does not mean that we are going to stop working on ways to improve our wines. We have, for example, a great interest in organic methods of cultivation and we believe in preventative pest management through the use of natural products and still more manual work. This leads to a flora and fauna that boasts biodiversity and supports our efforts to produce sustainable wines that are in tune with Mother Nature. In addition, we are investing money to carry out research into further cultivating methods that are geared towards climate protection.

1998 Château Cheval Blanc; Ruby, pink rim, floral, violets, mint, layered, again impossible to describe fully. Close to perfect balance, playfull and stil relaxed acidity. tannins soft, stunning texture, mouthwatering, just ads and ads with air, incredible length, never ending, I keep raising the score on this as it keeps unlocking more and more secrets. I wish I had cases of this one. 98


Served blind, I was sure it was Petrus, as was most of the table. Wine of the evening!

 Markus Del Monego MW , Wine Writer (Germany)  tasted  7 wines  from  Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan . In a tasting of  135 wines 

As every year on the last Monday and Tuesday of August, the VDP showed a huge array of over 500 wines from the german Grand Cru vineyards, designated as Grosses Gewächs, in a preview tasting for professionals and the press. The tasting was hold on August 29 and 30, 2016.


As the sheer quantity of wines available was too much for a short tasting session, I focussed on the grape variety Riesling and on the rather classic areas such as Mosel, Saar, Ruwer, Pfalz, Rheingau, Nahe and Mittelrhein. From these wine regions I have tasted all Rieslings available. In addition I also tasted a small selection of Riesling from Rheinhessen. The tasting showed a very high and rather homogenous quality level due to good conditions in 2015 but also applied experience and knowledge of the vintners. A very successful tasting with highly recommendable wines.
