Pale garnet in colour with blueish hue. The bouquet is an exhilarating mineral crush, lending freshness to profoundly ripe flavours of black plum and currant. The palate is vibrant yet spry and lifted, it's a piercing, deeply concentrated Pinot Noir edged by hints of earth, smoke and violet notes. Long and ruffled by fine tannins, it shows structure on the finish.

Marc Josten lives in the middle of the vines on the Ahr Valley Red Wine Trail. If fate isn't asking you to devote yourself intensively to the red wines of the region! Josten does it brilliantly, and he is just as ambitious when it comes to the white wines that he produces in his 4.5-hectare vineyard. The parcels on the Ahr are located in the Mayschosser Mönchberg, a classified top location with slate running through it, whose wines are approved as Grosses Gewächs. Marc Josten also owns vines in the neighbouring Burgberg, which, like the Mönchberg, is planted with early and late Pinot Noir vines. All the wines from Jostens Keller are on the dry side.
