From 13- to 14-year-old vines (massale selections from Burgundy), the 2014 Pinot Noir Brauneberger Klostergarten *** is super ripe and intense yet pure and fine on the nose. Dark berries, cherries, licorice, toast, underwood, cigars, crushed rocks and floral aromas emerge from the fine, beautifully deep and sweet bouquet that indicates perfectly ripe fruits but also the purity and freshness of the terroir. Silky, smooth and highly elegant on the seductively lush palate, this is an incredibly opulent and intense Pinot Noir that combines power and complexity with vitality, great purity, finesse and gracefulness. The mouthwatering finish is clear, fresh and mineral, giving tension and further complexity. This is a great Pinot Noir from the Mosel that can compete with the world's finest Pinots. 2,300 bottles were filled in August 2017. Tasted two times in March 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt

In addition to offering rich dark cherry and plum with an edge of fresh red currant and toasty, smoky wood accents, Molitor’s “three-star” Pinot Noir delivers considerably greater complexity than its one- and two-star... In addition to offering rich dark cherry and plum with an edge of fresh red currant and toasty, smoky wood accents, Molitor’s “three-star” Pinot Noir delivers considerably greater complexity than its one- and two-star counterparts. Sweet Virginia and smoky Latakia tobacco, bittersweet inner-mouth floral perfume, plus mouthwatering soy and maritime mineral notes are displayed against a strikingly transparent yet rich pool of fruit. And as usual at this address, abundant tannins are fine-grained and entirely consistent with polish and textural allure even at this youthful stage. While alcohol of slightly over 13 percent in no way sets this bottling apart from its fellow 2012 vintage Molitor reds, it delivers an unusually infectious juiciness and almost buoyant finish. Here is one of many instances where Molitor reveals himself to be among Germany’s half-dozen most exciting practitioners of Pinot Noir. And make no mistake: his reds have an impressive track record for aging! -David Schildknecht
