Revista de Vinhos, tasting note published in February 23rd 2024

A light color, rich in aromas, citrus notes, herbal undertones, and a fresh touch that enhances the experience. On the palate, it presents itself with a sweet note, well-balanced by the present acidity and herbal and floral hints. Good body with an appealing finish.

Dr. Loosen

Erdener Treppchen is named after the stone stairs built on the slope for workers to access the vineyards. The soil is red slate, producing wines with complexity and intense minerality. Recently, the vineyard was reorganized, revealing an ancient Roman press at the base of the hill.

Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling in Germany, produced from grapes harvested earlier in the best vineyards. The typical Mosel-Kabinett has a delicate, fresh, and fine taste. Fermentation is halted by cooling, resulting in a lower final alcohol content (typically 7.5–8.5 percent) and a moderate amount of residual sweetness that beautifully balances the bright acidity.

Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Kabinett is a quality wine (Prädikatswein) produced from healthy and typically ripe grapes, harvested early in the vintage and presenting a minimum must weight of 73° Oe.

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
