Dr. Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Auslese 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Oily-rich with an almost dramatic botrytis inflection of spice honey and distilled fruit as well as persistently musky sweet inner-mouth esters this opulent gaudy super-Sptlese does not weigh at all heavily on the palate but instead displays some of the levity and wafting personality associated with the best of its vintage. The lingering finish full of honey drippingly ripe melon and flowers and strawberry preserves is somewhat dominated by its sweetness. But really this is a wine to forget in the cellar for more than a decade and which should be worth followingfor at least 25 years. RP.

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
