91/100 | Kasia Sobiesiak, The Wine Front
This classic German Riesling has beautiful sweetness with balanced mineral acidity. Loosen is renowned for their riesling and this entry-level has more harmony and complexity than many wines well above it's price point. Light bodied but silky sweet and fresh. Grill up that crayfish or serve with some spicy cuisine.
Spicy and juicy, with lime-pith flavor and slate-like mineral notes, this hits all the marks for a Mosel riesling at a bargain price. Keep a bottle in the fridge for any sort of fish dinners.
The winery writes "Dr. Loosen’s non-estate 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. Dr. L Riesling is made with fruit that comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with local growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to maintain excellent quality in every vintage."
