KESSELSTATT BERNKASTELER DOCTOR RIESLING AUSLESE 2003 375ML
The legendary Bernkasteler Doctor sweeps uphill behind the village of Bernkastel. It is doubtlessly the most famous and most valuable/expensive vineyard in Germany. The site is only 3,26 ha in size and Kesselstatt’s share is 600 square meters. In all, only three estates have holdings in the site. This 100% steep site at an altitude of 125–200 meters faces south and southwest. The stony, loamy, weathered slate soils are medium deep and bring forth very expressive, powerful, spicy wines. According to legend, Archbishop Boemund II (1354–1362) was gravely ill at Burg Landhut and was not responding to medical treatment. Having heard this, a Bernkasteler vintner brought him a little cask of wine. Soon thereafter, Boemund was cured and praised the wine as being “the true doctor.” The vineyard has been called “Doctor” ever since. Huge nose with minerals, apples and honey. Complex and delicious, this is really super stuff. Fuder 13 (barrel 13).
