Dr. Loosen L Riesling 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

This extremely popular introductory wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. It is refreshing and fruity, with a fine mineral edge that is typical of the region. The grapes used to make Dr. L come exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with a select group of growers on long-term contracts, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to ensure excellent quality in every vintage

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

Wonderful as always and it's one of my perennial favorites and it's always in my cellar. A perfect sipper for anytime. Green apples, stone fruit and that great Mosel terrior combine with great acidity and schisty minerality to leave you wanting more. 90 points - drink now - Paul
