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 2010 Dr. L from Loosen has nice acid but limited fruit when compared with a nice Kabinett. Although it ispretty good for a QbA. Residual sugar seems to be about 1% , so it is on the drier side. . A small amount of tartrate crystals were found which is a good sign, especially in a QbA.

Pale. Peach, awesome nose. Fresh, crisp acidity with good balance of sweetness. Great wine
