Loosen Bros Riesling QbA Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Dr. L 2008

This one came to my attention as #62 on the Wine Spectator top 100 wines of 2009. They gave it a 90 for $12US. It is fairly available so I grabbed one. The wine is quite pale in color. On the nose are some mild varietal Riesling smells. On the mid pallet the wine is slightly sweet, somewhere in between a Kabinett and a Spatlese. The finish is on the lighter side of medium side. I would give it an 89 or so. It’s a little sweet for my tastes but quite nice none the less.

‘Dr. L’ is the exceptional entry-level Mosel Riesling made by the dynamic Ernst Loosen. If you are a Riesling newbie, this is an excellent place to begin. It shows all the bright fruitiness and refreshing acid one should expect from the grape. Wrapped up in a very easy-drinking style, it can be enjoyed as a sipper or paired with a seafood pasta dish.
