Pinot Noir speaks German

Four countries – one variety

27 February 2010

Pinot Noir, the queen of grapes

The fact that world-class Pinot Noirs are now occasionally produced in Germany, the land of white wines, is nothing new to many connoisseurs of the subject, even if wine drinkers, especially those with a Francophile bent, often elevate the supposed original from Burgundy to the dubious measure of all things. They tend to ignore the fact that, in addition to the chalky soils of Burgundy, the slate slopes of the Ahr and the red sandstone soils of Franconia, for example, also produce impressive and very distinctive Pinot Noirs that have no need to hide on the international stage. The Pinot Noirs from Switzerland, which also have a say in the race among the best “German-speaking” representatives of the grape variety, are mostly completely unknown in this country and were virtually unavailable in Germany until recently – and if so, then usually not at consumer-friendly prices. But not only in Germany and Switzerland, also in parts of Austria and South Tyrol excellent Pinot Noirs are produced.

For our tasting, we spared no effort to bring together a representative selection of the best wines of the grape variety from a total of four nations.

As our guest, we had the pleasure of welcoming Gerhard Stodden from Rech, whose Pinot Noirs from the steep slopes of the Ahr are among the best that the still young German red wine culture produces. It therefore came as little surprise that the two wines from his estate Jean Stodden took the top places in our blind tasting together with a Pinot noir from Markus Molitor.

Behind Jean Stodden and Markus Molitor, a broad chasing pack formed in which the high-class Pinot noirs from the four participating countries essentially met on equal terms. There were hardly any outliers at the bottom, and if there were, they were still very good wines.

Tasted on 31 August 2015 by Werner Elflein

Slightly cloudy, light cherry red with lightening and medium transparency. Darkens quickly when exposed to air. Well-balanced, not too deep scent of light red fruits and rosemary, underlined by rather superficial roasted aromas of new wood. In the mouth with a powerful attack, defined more by opulence than by elegance and finesse. The fruit is rather restrained and is strongly masked by the distinctive tannins. Nevertheless, good balance, also thanks to a stable, well-integrated acidity, which lingers piquantly in the finish. Cannot fully compete with Huber's best Pinot Noirs, namely those from the Hecklinger Schlossberg and the Bombacher Sommerhalde, but unfortunately not quite as good. Very good length.

Dense, slightly transparent cherry red. In the nose fine wood spice and hints of sour cherry. On the tongue with outstanding balance. Coarse-grained and velvety tannins are perfectly interwoven with finest, complex fruit density. Vital acidity. Delicate extract sweetness. Excellent length and depth. Reverberation lasting for minutes. Needs several hours in the decanter to develop, even at a relatively high age. Probably at its peak at the moment, with potential for many more years.

Tasted on 3 April 2021 by Werner Elflein

Faintly transparent to almost opaque cherry red. Sweet fruity aromas on the nose, especially of cranberry, and chocolaty roasted aromas. Slightly old woody, but fine. Highly elegant Pinot fruit, with silky and velvety tannins that melt on the tongue. Somewhat ethereal with hints of juniper, eucalyptus and herbs. Very long.

Almost opaque. Slightly cloudy cherry red colour. Spicy, wooden nose with faint hints of white pepper, cocktail cherry and dark chocolate. Powerful attack on the palate, sandy and grainy tannins and again dark chocolate. Dense and rather too much of a good thing in terms of concentration. Elegance and finesse unfortunately seem to get lost with maturity. Good acidity. Excellent length. Persistent, but not (any longer) really with great depth. Drink now.
