Loosen Bros. "Dr.L" Riesling 2008 wine review by (PB)
Dr. Loosen has long been a producer of fine German Mosels (for the Mosel River) and this table quality wine although very inexpensive, is very well made. Very nice rich pure fruit aromas on a pale straw glow. Bouquet highlighted by sweet, slightly powdery perfumey sweet spice.
Palate--semi-sweet, not as acidic as I would like but purely made with genuine flavors of light yellow apple, light citrus and tropical notes. Nearly elegant and at $9, a superbly made aperitif or try with more difficult to pair foods like oriental and possibly even mid-eastern.
I believe Bruce Sanderson at the esteemed Wine Spectator gave this wine 90 points. Experiment and raise a glass!
