Quality of Brundlmayer Sekt Brut 2002 (Kremstal, Austria) ?


Has anyone had Brundlmayer Sekt Brut 2002 (Kremstal, Austria) or read a review of it? I have located some at about US$32 per bottle and have never had a quality Austrian sparkling wine. I know Brundlmayer is one of the top producers of several Austrian wines and has a good reputation in general for Sekt. However I know nothing about the specific Sekt I mention here. While much Sekt exported from both Germany and Austria in the past was at best a cheap commercial wine, there have long been a few very good examples that often are difficult to find in many countries.

I have not tried the '02, but I can say that the '04 was lovely.
I do know that the Falstaff wine gave the '02 92 points, for what it's worth.

Thanks for the information. I think I will try a bottle soon, if it is still available. I live in a state to which many stores in other states will not ship, so finding a source of some wines can require quite a bit of effort.One can obtain some wines and spirits from Europe from stores there using express air delivery. However the extreme cost of air express makes this practical only for a very few bottles of special wines or spirits.

Check out the website of the SWRA:

/ They are actually taking the fight for the direct shipment of alcohol to those states where it is still prohibited. And they are having some successes.
