2018 Dr. Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese Mosel

SKU #1457127 90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sassafras and mint mingle with lime and honeydew melon on the nose as well as on the polished, buoyant palate. The sense of herbal infusion is quite persistent, with lightly bitter suggestions of melon rind adding stimulation, and ample primary juiciness to refresh. (DS) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

K&L Notes

About this producer: "Situated on Germany’s Mosel River among some of the world’s most treasured vineyards, the Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for more than 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 top-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class Rieslings. To achieve this, Ernst immediately changed the estate’s vineyard practices to dramatically reduce crop size. He stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers and soil amendments. He extended his commitment to sustainable practices beyond the vineyards and into the winery, implementing improvements in materials recycling, energy efficiency and water conservation. At harvest, he insisted on fully mature fruit that had been very strictly selected. And he turned to gentler cellar practices that would allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of technological meddling."
