Auction of the very rare 1959 Bernkasteler Doctor Trockenbeerenauslese

The famous Mosel Auction of rare wines takes place in Four Side Plaza Hotel, Trier, Germany, September 20th, 2019.

This year we present a solitaire bottle of the very rare 1959 Bernkasteler Doctor Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese, 700 ml. It is proven that the 1959 TBA exceeded 300 Oechsle must weight. The former United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower once received a case of 1959 Doctor from us, supposedly TBA, in 1962.

The bottle is perfectly full and has been tasted and recorked January 14th, 2003. The last press review comes from 2010:

"Warm amber color. Exquisite bouquet with walnut, chestnut honey and cress. In the first instant it does not taste sweet, but tangy, slighlty malty and bitter sweet. The finish has a wonderful acidity, still very lively and surprising."
FINE - Das Weinmagazin 4/2010, Taster: Till Ehrlich  

It is one of four remaining original bottles in our library and it will be released with the label of our renown Vintage Collection.
