The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling. Read less

91 points. Upon first sniff I immediately felt like I had been belted across the face by a giant candy cane. The deeply saturated mint extract components on this wine are amazing, and the way that they mingle in this enveloping cocktail of petrol and dark forest green tones, it really is fascinating. I get some green orchid tones, tons of white peach, and faint leather and chemical aromas, mixed in with coffee beans and anisette all coming together in this smoky cloud of aromatic delights. This wine exists solidly in the realm of dessert wines, as the 187 ml bottle might indicate. It’s nectar sweet with that same minty chemical component meeting me at the first sip. I then pick up on a corky component (not corked in the sense of a wine that has gone bad, but like a cork board, it’s a very delicate woody quality), lots of white peach, and cream and honey tones. This wine is just brimming with complexity and the green floral tones and faint minerals are incredibly impressive. More than the complexity of the flavor profile, the thing that caught my attention most about this wine is its elegant mouthfeel. Its very rich, however its in no way syrupy or thick, and its delicate acidity allows it to glide across the palate beautifully. This is a very well done dessert style expression of Riesling and its small bottle size and price tag make it a wine that would be just as easy to schedule into the end of any meal as it is to afford. Definitely a wine worth buying.
