This is a full-bodied, rich, and complex wine with great depth and charm as it ages. The Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doctorberg wines have always had a very long potential and mature to greater heights as they age.
Dr.Pauly-Bergweiler is the only winemaker that has "Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doctorberg" in the US and they consider the Doctorberg the best location on their estate. The stony, blue-gray slate, weathered soil has a particularly good heat storage capacity and gives the wine a high degree of minerality and finesse.
"There's weight here, with a creamy texture enveloping the Jonagold apple, apricot and candied orange flavors. This is immediately appealing, yet should develop also, thanks to the bright structure. Fine length. Drink now through 2028."
"The vibrant acidity makes this feel drier than expected, balancing the perfumed notes of pear, litchi and kumquat. It finishes with clear, cool notes of slate, all of its components harmoniously in place."
