Dr. Loosen, 2015 Loosen Erdener Treppchen Alte Reben GG

95
"From 100+ year old vines on red slate soils, straight above the Prälat, the 2015 Erdener Treppchen Riesling GG Alte Reben offers a clear and noble, flinty, precise and rather cool bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling berries. The wine is incredibly rich, vital and piquant on the palate; it is round and almost lush, but well structured by its minerals that give enormous length, grip and tension. This is a fascinating Riesling GG and by far the best dry Treppchen I have ever tasted. Riesling lovers should not miss it."

"Gentle citrus-fruit aromas please the olfactory perception. On the palate, Loosen's Treppchen has used the generosity of the vintage to produce a creamy Grosses Gewächs with soft acidity and reasonable remnant of residual sugar. Very pleasant."

100% Riesling

The Mosel’s steep, southfacing slopes create the perfect climate for Riesling, giving the vines ideal exposure to the sun. Generally cool conditions allow the grapes to ripen slowly for maximum flavor development while retaining bright acidity.

The Erdener Treppchen vineyard produces wines that are muscular and complex with an intense mineral finish. Grosses Gewächs (GG) simply means “great growth” in German and is the designation for an estate’s best dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard.

This limited-production wine is from a parcel of extremely old vines (“alte Reben”) in Erdener Treppchen that lies directly above Erdener Prälat. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and kept in the barrel, on the full lees, for a year before it is bottled. The extended maturation time allows the wine to develop greater texture and a natural harmony.
