A Wine That
is one of the steepest slopes for Christoph and Alex. You could say, it is their 'Grand Cru' mainly planted with very old vines that tell a story of the past. 'Bellen' is a delicate and pure expression of Pinot Noir - the kind of wine that creates a new world order. If you ever wondered if German Pinot Noir will ever reach the heights of their francophile neighbors you may wanna start your studies with this truly exceptional wine.

Where and How?
Pinot Noir from one of the oldest and steepest vines in the region. Planted on limestone soils with a mix of French and German Pinot Noir clones. A little over 50% of grapes were macerated as whole bunches and pressed with an old spiral basket press. Aged for 18 months in Small Burgundy barrels. Bottled without filtration.
The Winemaker: Wasenhaus
You might think two Germans starting their own wine project would have met on home soil, but in fact they met and conjured up the notion of Wasenhaus while living on the hallowed ground of Burgundy.
Alexander Götze, a landscaper-turned-winemaker, and Christoph Wolber, who’d decided that viticulture was the most exciting form of agriculture, had each found their own way to Meursault. There, they would become united in a new mission: to see if they could create some Burgundian-inspired magic of their own, in Germany.
