A very characteristic Mosel Riesling. Lively, juicy, with fine and playful aromas. Very stimulating, with a powerful structure, rich fruit - well-balanced with the fine acidity typical of the Mosel region.

Dr. Loosen

This wine is produced exclusively with fruit from estate vineyards located in red slate soils in the villages of Ürzig, Erden, Lösnich, and Kinheim.

Red slate, less common than blue slate, is mainly found in the vineyards of Ürzig, Erden, and Kinheim. The red slate soil, rich in iron, produces wines with a rich, spicy, and complex taste with intense mineral flavors. The stony slate soil reflects sunlight onto the grapes during the day while storing much of the heat.

The vines are cultivated specifically for the production of dry wine. Fermentation takes place with native yeasts in 3,000-liter neutral oak casks. Extended lees contact allows the wine to develop a naturally harmonious balance and greater complexity.

“Intense and concentrated, but pure and fresh on the intensely fruity and slatey but still yeasty nose. Medium-bodied, creamy textured and charming, it is round and clear on the elegant and juicy palate, with tropical flavors. And for the moment, it is still rich yet refined and elegant, with mouthwatering salinity on the finish.” – Wine Advocate, August 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
