Dr. Loosen

This Blue Slate Dry Riesling highlights the style driven by the mineral character of the steep blue slate vineyards in the Middle Mosel.

Blue slate is the most typical type of slate in this region. Rich in potassium, it provides vital nutrients to the vines and imparts to the wines a pronounced mineral characteristic that enhances the naturally high acidity of Riesling. In addition to the blue slate soil, the vineyards are characterized by incredibly steep slopes, a favorable position near the river, and excellent drainage. The wine ferments with native yeasts in 3,000-liter neutral oak casks, adding texture and greater complexity, softening the acidity.

According to James Suckling (2019), it is “the perfect introduction to dry Mosel Riesling. Wonderful stonefruit aromas, then a juicy palate with elegant balance. Very clean, mineral finish that offers sophisticated refreshment.

Weingut Dr. Loosen

When in 1988, Ernst F. Loosen took over the management of the family-owned business with over 200 years of history, he had already traveled the world and visited the most prestigious wine producers in search of the secret behind the greatest wines, with the aim of producing world-class wines himself. These journeys of discovery inspired his own philosophy that great wines are the perfect expression of the soil, climate, and grape variety.
It is in the heritage of his ancestors, in the old vineyards located in the Mosel Valley, that he found the material he needed to produce exceptional and complex wines, classified as “Grosse Lage” (equivalent to Grand Cru in Burgundy). Today, Weingut Dr. Loosen is the standard-bearer for a rediscovered German Riesling culture and a member of the VDP (Association of German Quality Wineries).
“Enjoying a great wine is a unique pleasure, both sensually and intellectually. The aromatic and textural sensations in a bottle of wine capture a whole cosmos, from the change of seasons to the distinctive terroir of a vineyard, the passion of the winemaker, and the distinctive stamp of the vintage. Wine is a historical record of the regional and cultural information collected in the grapes at a particular point in time, delivered directly to your glass. To achieve this marvel of humans working with nature, all the great winemakers I have met started with a clear vision of what their wines should express before the first grape is picked. For them, individual terroir triumphs over technology. And quality always comes before quantity. Great wines grow from great passion and dedication, and from clear convictions that are realized without compromise.
(…) That ability to transmit a visceral connection to a people, place, and time is what sets wine apart from any other beverage.” – Ernst Loosen
