VINOUS 89 points
“A nose featuring fresh apple and lime along with a hint of celery stalk anticipates the crunch, juiciness and mouthwatering salinity delivered on a polished and buoyant palate. The finish is infectiously juicy, mouthwatering and appropriately slate-suffused, its hint of sweetness deftly deployed.”

Situated around the city of Bernkastel, which is more than 1,000 years old, the Badstube vineyard has a gentler slope and richer soil. Natural springs provide all the water the vines need to produce full-bodied, assertive wines that are ideally suited to the vinifi cation of great Kabinett and Spätlese wines. The name Badstube originates from a former hot spring, which in the Middle ages heated a kind of “health spa.”
Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spatlese Dr H Thanisch (Thanisch) 2014
Wine Advocate 91 points
“The 2014 Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Spätlese offers a clear, fine and delicate bouquet with some flinty slate aromas. Round and smooth on the palate, and with a piquant and salty minerality, this is a very elegant, balanced and stimulatingly salty Riesling whose 41 grams of unconverted sugar tastes pretty dry.”

The vineyard is right next to the famous Berncasteler Doctor. Like in the Doctor the vines of this vineyard grow on very steep south pointing Devon slate soil in the picturesque Moselle valley. Grown on old (20-40 years) and partly non-grafted rootstocks.

“Lime, apple and honeydew combine for an attractive aromatic and generously juicy palate display. The feel is quite seductively silky, suiting the wine’s sense of seamless richness. There is a pleasantly earthy hint of winter squash as well. But apple skin and lime zest lend invigorating counterpoint on the finish, where honeydew delivers a cooling sense of persistent succulence, and there is delightful transparency to shimmering stony and alkaline nuances.”

The exceptional south-facing vineyard is located high above the town of Bernkastel. It is hard to demonstrate that its black slate soils and microclimate are significantly superior to those of its immediate neighbours such as Graben and Alte Badtube, and the site and its reputation have certainly benefited from having a legend attached: that of the 14th-century Archbishop Boemund II, who was miraculously cured of illness not by his physicians but by a good dose of wine from this site. The grateful prelate then conferred the name Doctor on the vineyard. The vines are ungrafted and some were planted more than a century ago.

“Persian melon and pear tinged with spearmint on the nose translate into succulence on a subtly creamy, sorbet-like palate. The soothingly sustained finish is coolingly mint-laced.”

Berncasteler Doctor Riesling GG Trocken Weingut Dr H Thanisch (Thanisch) 2018
Wine Advocate 92 points
“Vinified in a single barrique, the intensely yellow colored 2018 Berncasteler Doctor Riesling GG is concentrated and intense on the ripe and aromatic nose with its spicy oak nuances. Fresh and crystalline on the palate, this is a very salty, pure and sharp Doctor that still doesn’t develop the generosity and quiet flow you may expect from a grand cru.”

Decadent, musky perfume of lily and peony mingle with a faintly cheesy, sweaty post-fermentative note as well as with scents of overripe Persian melon. The palate impression is at once sumptuous, and caressing yet feather-light. This is another Thanisch 2018 so delicate and so intensely perfumed that it finishes like an inhalation – and a long, deep one at that.”
