All of us were agog when we encountered this magnificent bottle. Traditionally the most expensive vineyard in the Mosel, and for good reason: it produces magnificent wines year after year. Named for its healing powers, the Doctor is truly a Grand Cru vineyard, its wines exhibiting more amplitude and fullness than wines from merely great vineyards. Towering above the medieval village of Bernkastel, the steep, slatey Doctor gave us this generous, sweet, beautiful treasure, full-bodied and bursting with flavors of apples and pear. Immensely satisfying and a very special wine that provides pleasure immediately.
