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

A nice golden/green color, with closed curtains Smell At the first sniff I thought I got tobacco, but after a swirl the wine had gave me alot of freshness. Got some hint of citrus, starfruit (?) and some honey-melon. A promising scent! Taste Wow! was my first thought. Maybe just my mindset was alittle pumped up. Good balanced wine, with long aftertaste. Green apples and sweet, yellow licorice and some flowers on the pallet Conclusion This was a wine right up my alley. A really good wine to a low price (in norvegian standard), and it’s well worth the money. Alittle to “simple” for my pallet and a bit to sweet, but a really good wine that I really could see compared with salmon or other red, fat fishtypes.

Beat Caduff: Tolle, frische Nase mit weissen Johannisbeeren, saftige Nektarinen, Weinbergpfirsiche, etwas sizilianische Zitronen mit etwas rosa Grapefruit. Im Gaumen so lecker, schlank und rassig, sehr verspielt, tolle Eleganz, saftig, knackig mit Rasse, tolle, reife Säure. Ein glasklarer, frischer, lebendiger Kabinett, der nach mehr verlangt.

Max Gerstl: Ein ganz filigraner, verspielter, aber auch wunderbar aromatischer Kabinett, der kommt so unglaublich raffiniert daher, mich fasziniert er total, leichter kann ein Wein nicht mehr sein. Kaum zu glauben, dass er gleichzeitig so wunderbar aromatisch ist.
