Philip Lardot is our dear friend, a talented wine maker and possible savior of historic Mosel vineyards. This Spätburgunder or Pinot Noir comes from these steep, Mosel vineyards and is made in a semi carbonic, fun style focused on elegance and drinkability. A mineral and fresh nose and in the mouth strawberry, an enticing minerality, ripe cherries and a nice smoky layer coming from the terroir. 

 

Philip Lardot is onze dierbare vriend, een getalenteerde wijnmaker en mogelijke redder van de historische wijngaarden in de Mosel. Deze Spätburgunder of Pinot Noir komt uit deze steile, Mosel wijngaarden en is gemaakt in een semi-carbonische, vermakelijke stijl gericht op elegantie en drinkbaarheid. Een minerale en frisse neus en in de mond aardbei, een verleidelijke mineraliteit, rijpe kersen en een heerlijk rokerig laagje afkomstig van het terroir.

 

Full story: A dear friend, a talented winemaker, an ancient wine region and tons of minerality, all in one. Discover the range of wines that Finnish-Dutch winemaker Philip Lardot creates in the Mosel from old vines and steep parcels.

 

​Believe us, the steep slopes of the Mosel are not for the faint-hearted: close to Philip's house is the world's steepest vineyard, the Bremmer Calmont. Pretty much a cliff with vines on them. And even though pretty much everybody in the world agrees this area is home to some of the world's greatest Rieslings, it's an area in decline. ​

 

Vines are being ripped out by old vintners whose children either have moved to Berlin or just can't be bothered, selling them is hardly worth the trouble. Philip is one of the few that still sees the true potential and is painstakingly working these slopes to create mineral, rich, voluptuous, terroir driven, natural wines. Riesling of course, but don't miss the Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Gris or Pinot Noir, if they're not sold out yet.
