PRODUCER

Dr. Loosen
Bernkastel, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced "loh-zen") assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging more than 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 reduced crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. He insisted on fully mature fruit that had been very strictly selected. He also turned to gentler cellar practices that would allow the wines to develop their full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling. Ernst's focus is on the clear expression of terroir from each of the distinctive vineyards owned by the estate. All of Dr. Loosen's six major vineyards were designated as "Erste Lage" (equivalent to Grand Cru) in the 1868 Prussian classification of Mosel vineyards.
