Dr. Loosen

A true masterpiece in the heart of the Mosel. This vineyard, named Ürziger Würzgarten, meaning “The Spice Garden of Ürzig,” is a visual wonder with its steep red slopes. Forming a picturesque amphitheater through a dramatic bend in the Mosel River, it is directly adjacent to the vineyards of Erden but produces a completely different wine, characterized by unique and exotic aromas, spice notes, and a fascinating earthiness.

Grapes are selectively harvested from the best plots of very old, ungrafted vines, planted in the unique red volcanic soil of Ürzig in the Mosel. Fermentation occurs naturally in traditional Fuder barrels, where the wine rests on lees for 24 months. Subsequently, the GG reserve wine is kept in the bottle for an additional 36 months before being released. This extended maturation provides an additional dimension of finesse and balance to the wine.

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
