Winemaker Notes

The red sandstone and slate soil of Urziger Wurzgarten make it unique on the Mosel. Although immediately upstream from the top vineyards of Erden, it produces a completely different kind of great wine, with exotically spicy aromas and a mesmerizing earthiness.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 97
Decanter

Opulent, heady and inviting nose with layers of candied orange peel, white lily, hints of honey and floral notes of rose and geranium, The palate is plush with apricot liqueur, peach and a luscious sweetness.

Dr. Loosen, Germany
Dr. Loosen Winery Video

The Dr. Loosen Estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. With ungrafted vines averaging 50 years old, some of the best vineyard sites in Germany (four rated grand cru and two premier cru by both the 1868 German classification and the more current Wine Atlas of Germany), Ernst Loosen has the raw materials for stunningly intense, world-class wines. With crop yields almost half of what is permitted by law, only moderate use of organic fertilizers, and old-fashioned cellar practices, Loosen strives to create wines that unmistakably say, "Riesling, Mosel, and Dr. Loosen." In his own words, "The great winemakers I have met invariably possess a clear concept in their mind of what their wine should be. It's a vision that places terroir over technology, and grape quality over quantity. This is the level of winemaking we pursue at Dr. Loosen. Our goal is to produce wines that are luscious, complex, and true to their roots."
