Dr. Loosen Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel White 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

A small slice of perfection, the four-acre Erdener Prälat produces some of the greatest wines in the Mosel valley. It has 100 percent south-facing red slate soil and an extraordinarily warm microclimate, yielding wines of unequaled power and nobility. The vineyard’s exposure, combined with the warming effect of the river and the massive, heat-retaining cliffs that surround it, ensures exceptional ripeness in every vintage.

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

Fresh apple in counterpoint with lemon- and vanilla-cream characterize Loosen's 2007 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese, which preserves terrific refreshment on the palate even as it slathers on cream. This is another one of those seemingly levitat... Robert Parker. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2007 Doctor Loosen Riesling Spatlese Wehlener Sonnenuhr 750ml

Max Gerstl: Dieser Duft ist absolut betörend, unglaublich intensiv, tiefgründig, da ist Spannung drin, kündet eine grandiose Spätlese an. Am Gaumen ein Knaller, da geht die Post ab, das ist pure Rasse, der Wein strahlt eine sagenhafte Frische aus, das ist eine wahre Zitrusfruchtorgie, ich bin fasziniert, geniesse das Aromenspiel im minutenlangen Nachhall und stelle mir schon vor, wie der im Sommer im Garten schmecken wird, zweifellos noch eine Klasse besser als im Winter in der kühlen Probierstube bei Erni Loosen.

Max Gerstl: Ein Feuerwerk an Aromen, geniale Beerennoten, so sensationell himmlisch, Honigmelonen, flüssiges Caramel, saubere Botrytis, etwas Thymianhonig mit Orangenblüten, ein Parfüm von wilden Pfirsichen, Aprikosen, kandierte Hawaiiananas, etwas australische Mangos, Quittengelée und Sanguinella-Blutorangen. Im Gaumen eine gigantische Granate, die trotz ihrer genialen Kraft immer noch so elegant und unglaublich lang ist und einen fast in Ekstase versetzt, diese Cremigkeit mit dieser genialen Säure ist einfach top!
