Michael Schmidt from Jancis Robinson reviews four Dr Loosen wines, scoring between 15 - 17 points
Dr Loosen, Estate Riesling 2020
15 Points - Drink 2021 – 2023
“A cool fragrance reminiscent of Glacier mints bear the promise of a refreshing sensory experience. This may not be a wine for connoisseurs but with its easy-drinking lively combination of sweet apple and lemon, coupled with low alcohol, this could well open the Riesling door for a whole new generation of wine drinkers. Rocket science can always come later. ” - Michael Schmidt. View on the Jancis Robinson website here. View our tasting note here.
Dr Loosen, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett 2020
16 Points - Drink 2021 – 2025
“The Sonnenuhr Kabinett entices the nose with a cool fragrance of green fruit and just a hint of apple blossom. On the palate it’s one of the freshest Kabinetts you are likely to come across, as crisp fruit and animating acidity are supported by sherbety zest, residual sugar merely teasing the taste buds.” - Michael Schmidt.

Dr Loosen, Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett 2020
16.5 Points - Drink 2021 – 2025
“A gentle fragrance complements the scent of yellow fruit with just a hint of peach and vanilla. On the palate, a sherbety expression and appley acidity take care of refreshment, the fruit of peach and sweet lemon once again supported by a subtle nuance of vanilla. Deliciously spicy on the finish.” - Michael Schmidt. View on the Jancis Robinson website here. View our tasting note here.
Dr Loosen, Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spätlese 2020
17 Points - Drink 2022 – 2028
“The nose of the Treppchen Spätlese is not trying to dazzle with exuberance, but rather to entice with an intricacy of fruity and spicy nuances. Once again, very lively and sherbety on the palate with a fair amount of residual carbon dioxide, but this is well employed to emphasise the animating quality of Mosel Spätlese. Pear, peach and orange provide a sweet opening, but fruit is not having it all its own way, as delicate touches of nutmeg and salty minerality emerge. ” - Michael Schmidt View on the Jancis Robinson website here.
