Being French, Napoleon obviously knew his wine and described the Brauneberg as one of the ‘pearls of the Mosel region’. It is in these fine slate soils that Wilhelm Haag made brilliant wines that brought his estate to prominence from the 1970s. He was able to bring out the best of the terroir: filigree wines with fine floral fruit and elegant mineral tones that, in his words ‘should make the tastebuds stand to attention and cry out for more’. Since 2005 his second son Oliver has taken the reins. The estate has grown a little, but the wines are as brilliant as ever, ranging from a basic dry wine to top GG, taking in Kabinetts and TBA along the way.
