O Produtor, tasting note published in September 20th 2023

Surprisingly fresh and youthful, but aromatically complex and deeply expressive of its red slate birthplace. the insistent minerality of “erdener treppchen” is readily apparent, yet seamlessly woven into the earthy texture of the wine.

Saturn

9 Planets, 9 Regions, 9 Producers, 9 Codes, 9 Wines: A pioneering experience, a visionary outlook. Our journey began in Portugal with our first planet, Jupiter, followed by Uranus, discovered in Priorat, a region nestled in the mountains of Tarragona, devastated by phylloxera in the late 19th century.
And now, born in the Moselle Valley, famous for its production of high-quality wines, “Saturn” is an exceptional “Grosse Lage,” a classification that highlights the most prestigious German wines, especially those made from the Riesling grape, equivalent to the French “Grand Cru.”
The vineyards are located in the “Erdener Treppchen” vineyard, in the village of Erden, with a slope of 80% to 100%, at an altitude of 120 to 260 meters above sea level. Nearby is the oldest known Roman wine press north of the Alps, built in the 2nd century AD and rediscovered in 1998.
The climate is continental, with moderately warm summers and mild winters, cool autumn nights, and the positive influence of the microclimate of the steep slopes of the Moselle. The soil consists of red Devonian weathered slate with a high rock content.
The original, ungrafted vines are over 130 years old and are extremely well adapted to their specific environment.
This wine was made from a selection of 100% healthy fruit. The fermentation was done with indigenous yeast in a sizeable fudre barrel and was left after fermentation for eight years without batonnage. After eight years on their yeasts in the fudre barrel, the wine was racked off their yeast and was bottled without fining and filtration.
A true masterpiece that promises to be a valuable investment for collectors and wine enthusiasts. An exceptional limited edition Riesling. The Saturn Code 0.5 is not just a wine; it’s a journey into space; the embodiment of German winemaking tradition with a celestial touch.

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
