Tasting Notes

(Wwe Dr. H. Thanisch - Erben Thanisch Berncasteler Doctor Riesling Spätlese Auction #08) AP: 08 14. As so often with wines from the Doctor vineyard, at this early stage, this wine comes over as slightly broad, with only some diffuse scents of yellow fruits, herbs and a hint of volatile acidity on show. We mention this specifically because great Doctor wines are a really treat and one of the great experiences of Mosel Riesling. However, too few get the pleasure of it as wine lovers are scared by how “squared” Doctor wines can be in their youth. However, our experience with these wines tells us that they will miraculously slim down, focus aromatically and eventually turn into a beauty at maturity. In the present case, this looks like a modern version of the gorgeous 1996 or 1998 Auslese in the making. But patience will be needed for this duckling to turn into the beautiful swan it is destined to become. 2023-2043
