O Produtor, tasting note published in October 20th 2023

Waxy lemon rind and white floral notes are an elegant introduction to this gorgeously complex Riesling. The palate is delicately framed, yet deeply penetrating, with unctuous honey and citrus flavors laced with saffron and spice. Shrieking acidity shakes everything up and lingers long on the finish.

Dr. Loosen

Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel is a quality wine that, as the name suggests, is sweet, made from very ripe clusters affected by noble rot, Botrytis Cinerea, and it has the Goldkapsel (“golden capsule”) distinction, reserved only for special Auslese.

Erdener Prälat (The Prelate of Erden). This vineyard, a small slice of perfection, located at the base of the red slate cliffs between Erdener Treppchen and Ürziger Würzgarten, produces some of the finest wines in the Mosel Valley.

Its south-facing slopes, red slate soil, and extraordinarily warm microclimate result in wines of unparalleled power and nobility, truly kaleidoscopic, bringing together elements from all the other vineyards into a glorious singularity.

The vineyard’s exposure, combined with the warming effect of the river and the massive cliffs that retain heat around it, ensures exceptional ripeness in every vintage.

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
