Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Mosel Blue Slate 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A white with great cut offsetting its richness, providing the poles for the lime, apple and white peach flavors. Therersquo;s a touch of slate on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

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 terrific value in top-flight Riesling, this kabinett is named for a slate common in the middle Mosel and is sourced from a variety of Loosen's estate vineyards. Apple, cinnamon and slate notes are wonderfully interwoven in a wine that's creamy in texture without any accompanying heaviness. Finishes long and vibrant.

There's a spicy, tangy quality to this white, along with quince and anise. It's all underscored by a mineral element and a vibrant structure, with a fine, lingering aftertaste of stone and anise. Best from 2009 through 2022.

This wine has ripe, juicy flavors of nectarine and grapefruit that are luscious and inviting, accented by hints of spice.

The blue slate soil of the Mosel lends a strong mineral backbone to the traditional fruit flavors of this delicious, well-balanced Riesling.

WE 90pts. - Winemaker Notes - Kabinett is the lightest and most delicate style of Riesling in Germany. It is produced from the earliest picking in the best vineyard sites. This estate grown Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett embodies the racy, mineral-driven style of steep, blue slate vineyards in the famous middle Mosel villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen. Dr. Loosen Rieslings from these villages are some of the most elegant white wines in the world, with fine density and subtle power.
