Philip Lardot - Der Graf 2018
Der Graf was Philip Lardot's first wine, coming from a long, steep slope in the famous Mosel town of Piesport. This is non intervention wine making at it's peak, a new sense of adventure loathed by many wine professionals but loved by us: each year this wine is giving us a completely new perspective on its terroir. Tasting our first sip of the new Der Graf Riesling is a thing we look forward to all year, we anticipate a surprise and the wine always delivers.
2018 was one slow fermentation, which took over a year and a half to complete. This is the funky, yeasty brother to the cleaner and fresher 2019s.
