We had the opportunity to taste a full range of Dr. Loosen wines from the Mosel Valley with Ernst Loosen here at the Bottle Shop. All of the wines were very good to outstanding, This fruity, low alcohol Riesling which they call 'Dr. L' has delicate peach, grapefruit, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors with a long, juicy finish. It will pair well with Thai, Japanese and Chinese foods, as well as cheeses and pâté, or spicy, gingery seafood dishes. This charming quaffer would also be great for a day out on the boat with its easy-to-drink style and screwcap closure. We have carried this little bargain for 10+ years, and the 2008 and 2012 vintages were chosen as Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of the Year.

Wine EnthusiastPristine pink grapefruit and blossom notes extend from nose to finish in this fantastic value Riesling. Zesty and spry, it offers concentrated citrus and guava flavors filigreed by crystalline cuts of slate and steel. It's delicious already, but should hold through 2023.

Wine SpectatorAn expressive, fruity version, showing immediate appeal. Quite quaffable, but lacks complexity. Drink now.
