This 2007 Riesling from Mosel, Germany has an aromatic mix of apicot, nectarine and lime. It is sweet on the mid-palette and has a short mineral/slate finish. Pairs nicely with dessert courses and dark chocolate. Best served at 54 degrees. Buy and enjoy now.

Max Gerstl: Kurz beschrieben ist die Treppchen Auslese aber noch eine Nummer konzentrierter, obwohl sie verhältnismässig leise beginnt, aber nach einem kurzen Moment am Gaumen kommt gleich die Explosion, das sind pure, konzentrierte Zitrusaromen, dennoch schmiegt sich der Wein zart und weich an den Gaumen, ein Zeichen für total ausgereifte Säure, das ist echt ein Erlebnis, diese Auslese, die Länge des Nachhalls kann ich nicht messen, ich sollte ja irgendwann den nächsten Wein probieren.


Winemaker's Notes:

Dr. Loosen produces only Riesling from traditional, slate-soil vineyards in the Mosel valley. A full range of Prädikat wines is made from six grand cru single-vineyard sites. The vineyards of Dr. Loosen owe their excellent quality to three major factors: the exceptional regional climate of the Middle Mosel area, the mineral-rich slate and volcanic soils, and the incredible age of the estate’s ungrafted Riesling vines. All of Dr. Loosen’s six major vineyards were designated as Erste Lage (equivalent to grand cru) in the 1868 Prussian classification of Mosel vineyards, which was undertaken for tax assessment purposes. This classification predates the grand cru system in Burgundy, and was updated by Stuart Pigott and Hugh Johnson in the Wine Atlas of Germany (1995). Long ago, stone steps were built into the Erdener Treppchen vineyard's steep hillside to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with an intense mineral finish. Wines from Erdener Treppchen are more like a powerful, hard-body rock climber than the graceful ballet dancer of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They benefit greatly from a few years in the bottle to develop fully.
