Wine Spectator:

"Racy and rich, with concentrated green peach and grapefruit flavors accented by notes of wet stone. Tropical details emerge on the minerally finish alongside hints of smoke. Drink now through 2021."

Mosel Fine Wines:

"This is still quite restrained and only reveals fresh flavors of mint, herbs, anise and smoke at first. The wine develops a fruitier and richer side on the palate without compromising on freshness and lightness. This is still quite primary and will need time to blossom. The raw material is quite superb and promising. 2023-2035" October 2016

Product Description:

"The wine-growing tradition of the Dr. Hugo Thanisch family can be traced back more than 350 years. In 1636, the name was mentioned for the first time in the registers of Bernkastel-Kues. The quality of the family’s wines soon extended their excellent reputation far beyond the Mosel valley. At the end of the 18th Century, the Thanisch’s acquired the Berncasteler Doctor vineyard, a very steep site with deep devon slate structure, situated behind and overlooking the rooftops of the quaint old town of Bernkastel. The Doctor name originates in a legend about Prince Boemond II of Trier who fell sick and then was cured by a wine from this vineyard. Medicinal powers of fine wines are today being re-discovered! Without a doubt, the Doctor Vineyard is the most valuable and most famous German site." Importer
