The legendary Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard has long been considered one of the best sites in Germany. Its Doctor name comes from the 14th Century, when the Archbishop Boemund II had a very serious illness that his doctors were unable to cure him of. According to legend after drinking the wine of this vineyard he made a complete recovery and declared: “This wine is the true doctor!”
From then on, this steeply sloped, directly southwest exposed, pure blue Devonian slate, tiny vineyard of 3.26ha, which sits above the village of Bernkastel, has been called Doctor. The wines from here have been drank by royalty and wine elites for centuries.
Brilliant, bright yellow with golden hues. Precise, pure, and profound aromas. Fully ripe stone fruits and juicy yellow pears with lots of exotic topical fruits; from pineapple to papaya.
Very supple in the mouth, reserved but balancing acidity, still with young fruity sweetness. Has enormous length and a massive finish. It is joyful to explore the evolution in the glass.
Pairing: Goes seamlessly with seared foie gras, and also baked fruit desserts such as baked apples, apricot cake, peach turnovers.
