About this winery

Weingut Molitor is one of Germany's greatest wine producers. Markus Molitor took over the winery in 1984, at only 20 years of age. He represents the eighth generation of his centuries-old Mosel winemaking family. The estate is centered in the historic town of Bernkastel, with 37 hectares of spectacular vineyards spread across 15 classic sites from Bernkastel and Graach to Wehlen and Zeltingen. This is viticulture at its most extreme, with very old ungrafted vines (many 100 years old or more)...

Winemaking notes

All Molitor Wines are made by spontaneous fermentation. The use of improving agents or industrial yeasts is refrained from. Molitor wines are fermented at low temperature slowly over months. The wines are then left to lie for several more months on the fine yeast to give them bloom and depth. Alongside maturation in stainless steel tanks, the wines are fermented and matured in large oak barrels to ensure an especially natural flavour.

Tasting notes

This saignée rosé has a beautiful pink color and a palate that is fresh and concentrated. It smells of remarkably intense and aromatic ripe and spicy Pinot Noir berries. The palate is well-structured with a racy-fresh acidity and a remarkable mineral expression.

June 2019

The 2017 Pinot Noir Haus Klosterberg Rosé offers a remarkably intense and aromatic but concentrated and serious bouquet of fully ripe and spicy Pinot Noir berries. This saignée rosé has a beautiful color that changes between salmon and rib-eye pink. The nose is fresh and concentrated, even mineral and pretty sophisticated for a wine that sells for less than 10 euros ex-cellar. On the palate, this is an intense, dense, well-structured and persistent rosé with racy-fresh acidity and a remarkably mineral expression. This is a tight, concentrated and really spectacular rosé—perhaps one of the finest I have tasted in Germany in 20 years. I am already wondering what this rosé means for the red Pinots..?
