Julian Haart only began his first vintage in 2010, only after studying under a couple of some of the greatest winemakers in Germany, Egon Müller and Klaus Peter Keller. “That’s like learning to draw under da Vinci and Picasso,” says importer Vom Boden, in terms of German winemakers. Julian’s winemaking journey goes hand in hand with his rigorous focus of continuing to better himself. His first plot was adjacent to the grand cru site Ohligsberg. He then continued to purchase more vines in Goldtröpfchen and Schubertslay, both considered “grand cru” sites. Included in one of these sites is a bit of 100-year-old vines that are ungrafted. The wines are an ode to the style of Klaus Peter Keller who has been penned as creating “German Montrachets” according to Jancis Robinson.
This is Riesling coming from Julian’s Goldtröpfchen young vines, rightly named after his son Johann Josef, who bears the same name, as well as his grandfather and great grandfather.
