The dry Pinot Noir has an intense red color and smells just as cherries with a hint of marzipan. A pleasant smoky note and well-integrated, soft tannins round off the balanced red wine.
Pinot Noir is considered a very demanding grape variety and is therefore grown only in the most suitable vineyard site. Opposite the Schoenburg castle near Oberwesel lies the vineyard location Engehoeller Bernstein in the side valley of the romantic Rhine. The wine is grown here in steep rows. The slate geologically dominates the ground. In our Burgundy locations there is also a clay overlay over the Hunsrueck schistose. This is clay, which has arisen from the middle terraces of the Rhine. This type of soil is very beneficial to the Burgundy wine. The result is an intense and full-bodied Pinot Noir.
This wine was matured in big 40-years-old oak barrels. In these barrels the wine developed its harmonious and complex aroma under the influence of oxygen.
The dry Pinot Noir is a sophisticated accompaniment to hearty meals. It goes very well with game or beef. Of course, the meat should be served with a sauce of Pinot Noir. We recommend seasoning with a high quality and freshly ground black pepper. Or try a glass of this red wine in the evening together with a piece of fine dark chocolate. You will be amazed how the wine develops in combination with chocolate with at least 70 per cent cocoa!
