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.

Racy and well-structured, with some tropical fruit overtones of mango and fresh pineapple to the core of grapefruit and Key lime flavors. Pastry notes are accented by creamy elements on the long, rich finish. Very bright. Drink now through 2026.

Subtle bouquet of gooseberry and nut oil, with a trace of something floral. On the palate the creamy papaya flavor is counterpointed by citrus and slate. The persistent finish features an amalgamation of spices and mineral salts.

This moves through a vast array of flavor, spicy and lush. It begins on an herbal note of gentian, grows fleshy with nectarine flavor and heads into deep orange citrus. Those flavors coalesce around a tight center of white cherry fruit, sparkling with a crystalline minerality. It’s vast and yet structured, everything feeling in its place.
