Dr. Loosen

Slightly sweet wines with lower alcohol content, Dr. Loosen’s Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese are full-bodied, deep, and complex.

Erdener Treppchen is so named for the stone stairs that were built into the slope so that workers could access the vines. The soil is red slate, which produces complex wines with intense minerality. Recently, the vineyard was reorganized, revealing an ancient Roman press house at the base of the hill.

The Spätlese (“late harvest”) designation means that the grapes get an extra one or two weeks of ripening time, which helps in developing higher ripeness and deeper flavors than Kabinett. The Erdener Treppchen Spätlese is sourced from a truly “grand cru” vineyard in the village of Erden.

A quality wine from sustainable farming, in accordance with strict German environmental regulations.

“Concentrated and sweet on the palate, with a juicy texture, this is an intense, dense, and structured Spätlese based on super ripe and concentrated fruits. Excellent and substantial, requiring patience.” (Wine Advocate on the 2019 vintage, tasted in September 2020)

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
