Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Bernkasteler Lay 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

This is so rich and ripe it sits hunkered down in the glass, needing time to unfold. When it does, the flavors of red-blushed peaches and minerals are layered so deeply the taste holds on for minutes after each sip. It ends dry and refreshing, a terrific match for orange-glazed chicken.

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 touch on the herbal side, yet this shows intensity and verve for the vintage with smoky, mineral shadings overlaying the peach and almond notes. Lovely balance and energy. Drink now through 2010.

Ripe black cherry, black currant and lime aromas followed by juicy, luscious fruit on the palate. Quite sweet (ldquo;How else to keep down the alcohol?rdquo; asks Schug), but manages an appropriate lightness of touch and shows plenty of slate, salt and spice in a quite invigorating finish. One seems to taste here the advantages of Bernkastelrsquo;s soils in retaining moisture. Potential 2 stars.

This wine is a stunning example of how great German wine can be. Full and lush, with complex flavors of sweet, over-ripe, peaches and a long finish carried by intense acidity.
