2022 Thanisch Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett



The fruity styled Badstube Kabinett is (like pretty much everything here) of reference point quality.  Its sense of medium bodied richness/concentration, floral intensity, a certain fruity fleshiness, and light minerality are all delivered in house hallmark filigree fashion.  This is delicious kabinett, and quintessential Badstube…..

Like I said just above, I adore the Badstube wines from Thanisch, as I think that they are wildly underrated due to Badstube being a large appellation with so many mediocre wines made from it. Not chez Thanisch…..their holdings are prime, and thus they offer the quintessential friendly personality of the site with an uncommon sense of depth and complexity. Classy classy and fine….a little * awarded here.

“What a beautiful nose of just-ripe peach and fresh herbs this has. A touch of jasmine, too. A stunningly elegant Kabinett with notes of wet slate and lemon zest at the long and vibrant finish. Feels almost weightless! Drink or hold.” 94 Stuart Piggott
