2017 Dr. Loosen ‘Erdener Treppchen’ Kabinett Riesling
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90: The 2017 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett shows intense, ripe and overripe fruit on the nose, perhaps even a bit of botrytis. Lush and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a textured, creamy and mouth-filling Kabinett that tastes rather like a just-ripe Spätlese, a bit greenish and astringent, though. But it will most likely be really stimulating in ten years. Tasted in March 2019.
James Suckling 93: Juicy and appealing with a delicate lemon and anise nose. A mouthwatering finish that has plenty of mineral character. Drink or hold.
Wine Enthusiast 93: Penetrating flavors of white peach and pineapple are glazed by honey and slate in this gorgeously balanced, feather-light wine. It's semisweet and lip smacking, but zippy and electric too. The finish is long and intensely steely. Drink now–2030.
