This extremely popular introductory wine embodies the elegant and racy style of classic Mosel Riesling. It is refreshing and fruity, with a fine mineral edge that is typical of the region. The grapes used to make Dr. L come exclusively from traditional vineyards with steep slopes and slate soil. By working closely with a select group of growers on long-term contracts, brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen are able to ensure excellent quality in every vintage.

Wine EnthusiastWhile unabashedly sweet and simple, this luscious, lip-smacking wine is full of ripe pink grapefruit and tangerine flavors. Zippy acidity sharpens the midpalate and drives a lingering, fresh finish. Drink now through 2019.

Wine AdvocateBottled with 8.5% alcohol, the 2015 Riesling Dr L offers a clear, fresh, delicate and slightly smoky bouquet of crushed stones and ripe fruits. Round, piquant and racy, with a good grip and stimulating finish, the 2015 tastes much less sweet than usual and is a lovely wine for thirsty throats.
