‘[…] Wir können hier an der Mosel Rotwein machen. Und man kann Rotweine mit weniger als 13 Prozent Alkohol machen und das sind trotzdem keine dünnen Pfützchen.»[…]’

VINUM Ausgabe Januar/Februar 2021

‘[…] Deutschland wird also das Land großer Rotweine? Davon ist auszugehen, auch weil manche Hänge an den Weinbau-Flüssen für Riesling mittlerweile zu heiß werden. Dass man auch an der Mosel gigantisch gute Pinot Noirs keltern kann, beweisen etwa Markus Molitor, Stefan Steinmetz, Nik Weis, Christoph Schneider oder (und vor allem) Daniel Twardowski. […]’

„This gorgeous Pinot Noir is easily the finest we have ever tasted from the Mosel!“

Mosel Fine Wines, Issue No. 53, 2020

„The Hofberg site above the meandering stream of the Dhron, just before it joins the Mosel, may seem an unlikely place for Pinot Noir, but the blue slate of ist slopes, rich in iron oxide, has produced some remarkable results in the hands of newcomer Daniel Twardowski.“

„Das ist zeitlos. Das ist der beste Wein“

Cool Climate & Consorten Probe, Hamburg, 26.1.2018

„Cinderella goes to the ball, or, in Twardowski’s case, the 2011 Pinot Noix Ardoise goes to a blind tasting, where its beauty receives far more acclaim than the other competitors, some of them of the highest pedigree. I won’t name and shame, but needless to say they make the Pinot Noix’s price of €70 look modest. De gustibus non est disputandum, however, and any tasting contest is only as good as its judges, whose identity in this case remains unknown to me. What I could deduce about them was that they seemed to be quite partial to a bit of oak. Sixty per cent new wood turned out to be a modicum too much for my liking, but I need not have worried. Daniel saw it exactly the same way, and from the second vintage on introduced a far greater proportion of second- and third-fill casks for the 14 to 18 months he likes to age his Pinot Noir in (lightly toasted) wood. It goes without saying that his wines are spared the indignity of pumping or filtration before they are bottled. For the gentlest extraction of juice from the fruit, Daniel Twardowski prefers a traditional basket press to the modern horizontal pneumatic press.“
