2019 "Wehlener Sonnenuhr" Alte Rebe, Riesling trocken GG, Weingut Dr. Loosen
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
From volcanic soils, the 2019 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling GG Alte Reben is beautifully clear, fresh and subtle on the precise and highly finessed bouquet of slate, iodine and herbal scents. The warm and elegant Riesling fruit intertwined with very fine herbal notes represents the very best of this exceptional grand cru in its original, much smaller size. Almost entirely sourced from the Urglück, this is a lush and intense, enormously powerful yet restrained and slatey Würzgarten GG with crystalline acidity that leads to a long, intense and still slightly astringent finish with refreshing lemon features. This wine is still developing and has the potential to become another giant of the vintage. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.
This is an extrovert Mosel GG with a ton of spice and berry aromas that are just beginning to open up. At once succulent and elegant on the palate, it manages to be complex and easy to understand, the finish very long and pure. Drink or hold.
