Sleek and tangy, showing apricot, lime and mango flavors matched to a lively structure. Nice harmony and persistence through the finish.
Wine Spectator Rating:90 Points
This impressive wall of vines, beginning at the village of Bernkastel and continuing downstream for about six kilometers, is one of the longest continuous stretches of top-rated vineyards in Europe.
Dr. L comes exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. This introductory, non-estate wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. By working closely with growers on long-term contract, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to assure excellent quality in every vintage.
