Winemaker Notes

The red slate and volcanic soils of Urzig produces wines of acompletely unique nature. The wines showcase the typicallyjuicy and precocious fruit of the "spice garden," with a richmouth feel, zippy acidity and lingering finish. "Spätlese"("late-picked") is produced with grapes that get a week or two later than Kabinett, but still without any botrytis. The extra hang time gives them higher ripeness and deeper flavors than a Kabinett.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Mouthfilling flavors of apple, citrus and unripe pineapple are fresh and zesty in this pure-tasting version. Features hints of smoked meat on the luxuriantly spiced and minerally finish. Drink now through 2038.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Summer peaches and cantaloupes are fringed with a delicate mineral edge in this semidry spätlese. It’s ethereal and gauzy in texture, but a puckering honey-finish packs punch and persistence. Drink now through 2025.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
The spice in "Würzgarten" reads as herbal in 2013, the racy acidity carrying a tarragon-like note. The fruit is both green and ripe, honeydew and soursop, underlined by earthy richness. It needs cellar time; then serve with rabbit in a tarragon cream sauce.

Dr. Loosen, Germany
Image of winery
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 terrior 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."
