Dr. L comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. This introductory, non-estate wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. By working closely with growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to assure excellent quality in every vintage.
Before taking over his family's wine estate, Ernst Loosen made a pilgrimage to some of the most highly respected wineries in the world. It was his belief that before he could make world-class wines, he first had to understand what it is that makes a wine truly great. Through this voyage of discovery, Ernst developed the foundation for his own winemaking style - a style that is rooted in the authentic expression of the soil, the climate, and the vines themselves.
|Wine Spectator: Sleek and tangy, showing apricot, lime and mango flavors matched to a lively structure. There's nice harmony and persistence through the finish. Drink now through 2018. 75,000 cases made. -BS
