The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 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 restricts crop size, prohibits chemical fertilization, insists on very strict fruit selection, and employs gentle cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling.
Fruit and floral tones take center stage in this richly textured Riesling Sekt. Its petillance spreads lushly, offering loads of ripe nectarine and yellow plum flavors, while darts of lemony acidity keep the palate pert and bright. .
