A Wine That
is up there with the great white Burgundies of our time. Möhlin is one of the steepest and most pristine plots in the small estate. 'Super cold but fantastic for our idea of great wine' as Alex and Christoph would comment. The fact that the two have snapped up a thing or two in Burgundy does give this special wine the final edge. If you are looking for future 'all-stars' then this may be the next MJ already winning the MVP nomination.

Where and How?
Weissburgunder aka Pinot Blanc from an old terraced vineyard on the 'Ölberg' hill. The vineyards were planted in the 1950s with very low yielding Weissburgunder clones. The soils are limestone based with occasional 'Loess' top soils. Grapes are hand harvested, directly pressed and aged in small Burgundy barrels. Before bottling the wine is aged for a further 6 months in tank.
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.
