Philip Lardot 'der Monch', Riesling, Germany 2020
We love Philip Lardot here at One Kourt Studio. We love his passion and his eccentric outlook on what Mosel wine should be. After being convinced to pack up and move to the Mosel, the Finnish-born, Amsterdam raised, Philip Lardot embarked in a path of no return, as in he is the one being groomed to take over the famed Ulli Stein's vineyards and cellar. But that story is for the future. Meanwhile, Philip is making his own wine alongside Stein's under his own label.
A new cuvée by Philip Lardot, made from part of the Klosterkammer part in St. Aldegund in the Mosel. Old and ungrafted vines, very steep, East-facing slopes create an intricate, light and almost mysterious wine with a huge potential.
