Weingut Dr Loosen:
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.

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

After seeing this QbA get rave reviews in the Wine Spectator, I decided to try it. Citrus nose and good acid but this wine lacks the perfume of a 91 point wine. It also lacks the richness and fruit of a good German Riesling. Somewhat simple and not worth the money. Your money would be better spent on a $15 Kabinett. My rating-- 86

There's a snappy acidity to the peach, apple and Bosc pear flavors in this white, which offers plenty of freshness on the finish, with hints of glazed citrus. Drink now through 2014. -KM
