Description
 
The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that, with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve that, Ernst dramatically restricts crop size, uses only organic fertilization, insists on very strict fruit selection, and employs gentle cellar practices to allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling.

Loosen's 2016 Graacher Himmelreich GG Alte Reben is deep, precise and smoky on the nose, where ripe and concentrated fruit is displayed, but the wine is still dominated by the flinty terroir flavors of freshly crushed stones. Pure, vital and highly tensioned on the palate, this is a terrific vin de terroir, highly finessed and endlessly salty. Most probably the best Himmelreich I have ever tasted from Ernie Loosen. Tasted during the preview of the GG wines in Wiesbaden in August 2018. Wine Advocate 96
