These were the word's we exclaimed on tasting this mind boggling delicious German Pinot Noir, and yes we know it has the price tag to match but we believe it is that freakin' good. Both Jean Fisch and David Rayer, of the online publication Mosel Fine Wines, have gone out on a limb and proclaimed "This gorgeous Pinot Noir is easily the finest we have ever tasted from the Mosel."

Daniel Twardowski is the proud proprietor of the first red-wine-focused estate in the Mosel in 120 years, if not the history of the Mosel.   Daniel planted Pinot Noir in the Hofberg in 2006 with very serious vine material (from Clos de la Roche, Richebourg and Romanée St. Vivant and more) and is making what many people, including Mosel Fine Wines, think is the greatest Pinot Noir from the Mosel.  All the work is by hand and yield are kept insanely low at around 15 liters per hectare.

Grape: Pinot Noir

Soil: Slate

Viticulture: Sustainable, and harvested

From Mosel Fine Wines:

2017 Daniel Twardowski Pinot Noix “Ardoise”

“The 2017er Pinot Noix Ardoise, as it is written on the consumer label, was made with 30% of stems. This medium-light cherry-red colored wine offers an absolutely marvelous and captivating nose of peony, rose petal, raspberry, warm earth, cinnamon, a hint of cassis, and fine spices. The wine proves gorgeously smooth and multi-layered on the refined and almost airy palate with perfectly integrated, silky, and subtle tannic structure. The wine oozes complexity right into the light-footed and hugely persistent finish. This has all the classy elements of a fine Burgundy with an added zesty presence in the aftertaste. This gorgeous Pinot Noir is easily the finest we have ever tasted from the Mosel! 2022-2037”
