Julian Haart, that is - the prodigious German winemaker who somehow already has a decade of vintages under his belt after working beneath two behemoths: the living legends Egon Müller and Klaus-Peter Keller.

Julian Haart

Training in any profession is important. Just like we sommeliers and former hospitality pros were poked and prodded for "star hunting", or shipping around to different Michelin-starred restaurants in lieu of a longstanding career at one of them, the future rockstars of the wine world seem determined to seek out differing beliefs and methods to learn from while they hone their own eventual vinous vision. So it is that Julian Haart spent time with two luminaries of Germany in Egon Müller and KP Keller - producers of many of the most sought-after (and pricy!) wines in the world!

Julian's first vineyard purchase was in the Grand Cru Ohligsberg; he followed this with the purchase of a parcel in the 75+ year-old, terraced Goldtröpfchen ("droplets of gold"); Schubertslay, home to century-old, ungrafted vines came a year later, a whole one hectare of vines (that's like a midwesterner's front yard). In 2018, Haart graciously gifted Schubertslay to Klaus Peter Keller in return for access to Keller's Frauenberg vineyard. 

"Julian's red label bottlings are playful, fresh and graciously showcase the talents of this young winemaker," Doug continued. "Although these cuvees are not a part of the Prädikat system, they still represent the region beautifully."

Crushed stone, smoke and a note of ash on the nose put one on notice that despite a glycerol-rich palate with prominent zest of lemon and grapefruit, this cuvée from younger vines in Goldtröpfchen is going to be dominated by mineral flavor characteristics. The overall effect is fairly austere but benefits from refreshingly bright, citric juiciness, and the buoyant, dry finish is mouthwatering as well as fascinating in its suggestions of wet stone, peat, ash and marine salinity.
