Additional Information: Jean Stodden is one of the top producers of Pinot Noir in the world and have been making wine since 1578. Only 3% of their none hectares are old vine Riesling.

In the most Northern Part of Germany the 560 hectares of the Jean Stodden estate are across three mountain vineyards; Recher Herrenberg, Dernauer Hardtberg and Ahrweiler Rosenthal. Vines grow on extremely steep slopes that can only be tended by hand with some parcels requiring mountain climbing skills to be reached. Soil is slate. Only 5-6% of his wines are exported outside of Germany. 

The Ahr river and the Eifel mountain range create the warm yet moderate microclimate ideal for producing top shelf Pinot Noir. Grapes are destemmed and undergo a cold soak before fermentation. 18 months in barrique with some new oak. Drinking now but will age for the next 20 years.
