Outer quote mark Super fresh and pure aromas of white peaches and limes with a perfumed, herbal edge, as well as fresh stones and flinty notes. The palate has a sleek and juicy feel with a wealth of attractively smooth, elegant and pure white peaches, delivered in a refined, elegant mode. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Grosses Gewächs from Weingut Dr. Loosen comes in at a very refined 12.5 percent octane in this ripe vintage. It is produced from a parcel of more than one hundred year-old vines in the Treppchen, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in traditional, old oak, thousand liter fuder for one year prior to bottling. The wine has seven grams per liter of acidity and 8.4 grams per liter of residual sugar in this vintage. It offers up a really lovely bouquet of gooseberry, green apple, tart orange, a beautiful base of salty slate minerality, white flowers and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and beautifully defined by its minerality, with a fine core of fruit, bright acids and excellent focus and grip on the long, balanced and complex finish. This is very good indeed! (Drink between 2020-2050) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

89-90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A classic Treppchen nose pungently evokes sassafras with zesty lemon and orange. A pithily concentrated palate is strong on citrus peel and apple seed piquancy and projects an impressive impression of smoke and crushed stone suffusion. The finish grips, but a bit gruffly and roughly. I am not convinced that time will temper this, but it was only due for bottling in early 2020 and will thus have experienced further (as always at this address, passive) lees exposure. (DS) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

K&L Notes

91-93pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 48 19. The 2018er Erdener Treppchen Riesling Alte Reben, as it is referred to on the main label (the reference to GG is left for the back label), comes from very old un-grafted vines in the prime Onnerts and Herzlay sectors (situated just above and next to the Prälat), and was fermented with ambient yeasts and aged in oak for almost 12 months. This cask sample offers a superbly elegant and fruit-driven nose of pear, vineyard peach, and candied grapefruit as well as almond cream and flowers. The wine is delicately smooth and juicy on the comparatively light bodied but complex palate, and leaves a nicely refreshing and spicy feel in the long and quite pure finish. A great touch of minerals in the after-taste rounds off the pleasure of enjoying this dry Riesling. 2023-2033. (10/2019)"
