Brauneberger Mandelgraben* Pinot Noir, Markus Molitor, Mosel 2018
Described as ‘The Lord of the 1,000 Rieslings’, Markus Molitor took over the responsibility of his parents’ 7.5 acre estate in 1984. Vision, drive and an uncompromising devotion to quality have increased the holding to 125 acres in 18 appellations of the steepest and most coveted vineyard sites along the banks of the Mosel. In the spirit of authenticity and terroir, all of these wines are fermented naturally – no cultured yeasts, no fining agents, no enzymes and no other additives are ever used. Each wine (of which we have chosen but a small selection) expresses the single vineyard character, the vintage, the quality and the style, to its extreme authenticity.
