The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically restricts crop size, prohibits chemical fertilization, insists on very strict fruit selection, and employs gentle cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling.

2011 Dr. Loosen Brut Rose

Almost all of Dr. Loosen’s production is Riesling from traditional Mosel slopes, as our ancestors have been doing it for over 200 years. So when we acquired a small parcel of Pinot Noir vines in Ürziger Würzgarten, we were not really sure what to do with them. There is no real tradition for Pinot Noir on the Mosel, but we do love the variety, so it would have been a shame not to do something fantastic with these grapes. The most logical idea was to combine our love for Pinot Noir with our passion for great sparkling wine and produce a vintage Rosé Sekt. After five years on the fine lees in the bottle, in the traditional Champagne method, we have released our first vintage: the 2011 Dr. Loosen Pinot Noir Rosé Sekt

2017 Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese

The famous “sundial” vineyard, in the village of Wehlen, produces the quintessential Mosel Riesling: delicate and refined, with a racy texture and endless charm. 

    This precipitously steep, rocky vineyard consistently yields some of the most elegant and sophisticated white wines in the world. Auslese [OWS-lay-zuh] means “selected from the harvest,” and is a luscious sweet wine made from very ripe clusters that are about 50 percent affected by botrytis. The resulting wine is dense, intensely flavored and rich on the palate, but retains the elegant structure that is characteristic of this great site.
