Dr. Loosen

Now in its third vintage, the Blue Slate Kabinett is our answer to the increasing challenge of producing true Kabinett in the grand cru single-vineyard sites. In today's generally warmer climate, it is more difficult to harvest these vineyards before they reach Spätlese or even Auslese ripeness. By moving farther up the slope, where it is cooler, we can select fruit that is perfectly ripe for Kabinett. This wine comes from parcels owned by Dr. Loosen in the blue slate villages of Bernkastel, Graach and Wehlen. It is bright and pure with the classic white peach fruit and floral, flinty minerality that is so typical from blue slate. A plush attack on the mid-palate leads to a deliciously firm, delicate finish. This wine makes an elegant aperitif and is an excellent match for seafood, spicy Asian cuisine and lighter dishes.

Wine Enthusiast

As with all of the Dr. Loosen wines, this blended kabinett is very fruit-forward and direct. The green apple and lime notes are wonderfully pure and balanced. Drink this light, spritely wine over the next few years.

Score: 90. —Joe Czerwinski, March 01, 2011.
