We are currently noticing several positive developments. On the one hand, the trend towards wines with more finesse continues unabated. Also, many producers who used to focus on particularly high ripeness, alcohol power and abundant wood are now producing much more elegant Pinot Noirs. The most important side effect of this change of mind seems to be that the wines not only have more character and a higher recognition value, but also increasingly develop character of origin. And finally, we are always amazed at how many new talents we discover each year who are dedicated to producing fine Pinot Noirs.
