This is AP#3.
Yellow-gold. He’s racy but not short: plenty of ’98 acidity but it’s ripe and round, giving definition and finish to the wine. Lines are limpid yet firm; the flint and rowan perfume, memorable. Flavors run to white cherry, poire williams, blossom honey. The finish is lively and adroit. Bernkastel in motion. Now – 2020.
