Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"Delicate hints of burnt caramel and leather work to accent crisp, cutting notes of sour cherry and fresh strawberry in this briskly composed Pinot Noir. While full bodied and silky in texture, it maintains a transparency of fruit and pert acidic structure that's invigorating. Approachable young, it should continue to improve through at least 2030 and hold further." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"E has always been the parade grape variety on the Ahr – and not without reason. The sensitive diva is like hardly any other red grape variety able to reflect the influences of soil conditions and microclimate in an extremely differentiated way. That alone makes it worth all the effort that the difficult Pinot Noir demands in cultivation. Especially in connection with our extraordinary slate formations on the Ahr, our work here is rewarded with wines that can only be produced in our region. Provided you know how to preserve the fine characteristics in the ageing and, for example, not to make up with barrique aromas. Then really large, worldwide unique Pinot Noir is created."
