Pure golden hue. Enticing white flowers, peach and citrus fruits on the nose. Equilibrium between mellowness and liveliness on the palate which leads into a long finish with classy oak notes.

Robert Parker (RP) : 89 Points (2017)
The 2017 Grande Reserve White is 60% Viognier, with 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay, aged for three months in a mixture of second and third use French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Tasted about two months after bottling, this was still in good form. The oak impact is nominal. The freshness and the aromatics, some flowery nuances tinged with a little green (the Sauvignon Blanc just saying "hello!" for that last), make this an enticing summer white with the freshness you want and the lively feel as well. The balance is impeccable. For all of the obvious advantages it has—its zesty nuances that will serve you well in warm weather—it is actually a little understated. It tastes great and smells great. It is graceful and well balanced. This might well hold nicely for several years, but I wouldn't want to lose its youthful exuberance. Don't hesitate to dive in while it is young and fresh.

Dr Loosen Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015

The Spätlese designation means that the grapes get an extra week or two of hang time, which helps them develop higher ripeness and deeper flavors. The Erdener Treppchen Spätlese is a fruit-driven Riesling that combines extraordinary concentration and length with bracing minerality
