The Recher Pinot Noir from Jean Stodden of the Ahr shows a bright, light red color in the swirled glass. After the first swirl, one can perceive a perfect balance in this red wine, as it does not stand out on the glass walls watery or syrupy or liqueur-like. In the glass, this red wine from Jean Stodden reveals aromas of black cherries, plums, morello cherries, mulberries and blackberries, complemented by black tea, oriental spices and dark chocolate. This dry red wine from Jean Stodden is just right for purists who prefer to drink bone dry. The Recher Pinot Noir already comes very close to this, as it was pressed with just 2.1 grams of residual sugar. Balanced and complex, this crisp red wine presents itself on the palate. Due to the balanced fruit acidity, the Recher Pinot Noir flatters the palate with a pleasing feel, without lacking freshness at the same time. The final of this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of the Ahr, more precisely from Rech, finally thrills with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of the soils dominated by weathered rock and slate.
Vinification of the Jean Stodden Recher Pinot Noir
This red wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, Pinot Noir. Only the best grapes were used for this exceptionally balanced varietal wine from Jean Stodden. In the Ahr region, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of slate and weathered rock. What is unusual about the creation of this red wine by Jean Stodden is the fact that the grapes grow on stone terraces in Rech (DE). This traditional form of vineyard design is unfortunately very costly and time-consuming and therefore rarely found anymore. Obviously, Recher Spätburgunder is also determined by more than just the Rech soil. This German wine can be described in the best sense of the word as an Old World wine that presents itself in an exceptionally impressive manner. The fact that the Spätburgunder grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has an influence on the ripening of the grapes that cannot be dismissed. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. After the hand harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks and small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for several months on the fine lees before the wine is finally drawn off.
