Wine tasting notes

Sparkling wine, called “Sekt” in German, has a long history in Germany. A fact that you can see in the many German family names among famous Champagne houses (think Bollinger, Krug and Mumm, for example). Dr. Loosen celebrates this tradition with an Extra Dry Sekt from 100% Riesling, which makes excellent sparkling wine because of its natural acidity. The Dr. Loosen Sekt Extra Dry is produced with fruit from estate vineyards in the Middle Mosel. Bottle fermented, it is brisk and refreshing, with pure Riesling fruit and crisp acidity

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (NV) - 15 pts

Unusual aroma because of the aromatic variety and the leesy/creamy winemaking-derived character, slightly honeyed too. You can definitely taste some sweetness on the finish (Extra Dry is 12-20 g/l), powerfully flavoured upfront but disappears relatively quickly. Well-made aromatic fizz. (JH)

Zesty green apple and crisp stone fruits are electrified by spine tingling acidity in this invigorating sekt. It's fresh and primary in style, with just a hint of cookie crumbs that linger on the midpalate. Tiny, vigorous bubbles dissipate elegantly on the finish.
