Would it surprize you to learn that Germany is the world’s third largest Pinot Noir producer? Only France and California are ahead of Germany, and it’s safe to say that while France and Cali have a global reputation for plenty of fine Pinot wines, Germany does not. Yet. It’s a delightful surprize to learn how delicious Pinot can be in the land of Riesling. A few years ago I went to Germany for an exclusive tour of the Pinot Noir regions (and Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc which can be stunning there too), and was charmed by the purity and earthiness of the grape that is called Spätburgunder. Famed Riesling king Dr. Ernst Loosen owns Villa Wolf, and has thrown all his energy and resources into making fruity, light, fragrant Pinot Noir in the Pfalz, one of Germany’s warmest regions. Villa Wolf was founded in the 1750s, and despite former glory days, was a little run down when Ernie bought it in 1996. This Pinot Noir bursts with typical red crunchy fruit, with fresh juicy acidity and a proper earthy, gutsy flair. Twelve months of barrique aging gives the wine a smoky depth and a nice touch of sweet tannins. This is a very grown-up Pinot Noir for the price, and an excellent wine for everyday dining. It’s a new but still familiar take on Burgundy’s great grape. Pair with a beet salad with warm goat cheese, beef stroganoff, or even barbecued sesame tuna steak.
