TESCH Riesling

2021 KARTHÄUSER | Tesch Riesling trocken

“Ein trockenes Riesling-Meisterwerk mit einer nahezu perfekten Balance aus verhaltener Reife, sehr komplexen Wildkräuteraromen und einer extrem mineralischen Säure. Erstaunliche Konzentration und Brillanz am extrem fokussierten Gaumen. Die enorme Energie im peitschenartigen Abgang lässt vermuten, dass dieser Wein ein ausgezeichnetes Alterungspotenzial hat. Am besten ab 2024.” 97 | S. Pigott | www.jamessuckling.com “Flasche inklusive Schraubverschluss nur 1.161 g. Gewachsen in einem Amphitheater aus verwittertem rotem Sandstein und beschrieben als “sehr komplex, würzig und ausdrucksstark”. In der Nase ist er reichhaltig und am Gaumen etwas pfirsichartig, aber er endet mit einer nach Limetten schmeckenden Säure, so dass das Ganze schön ausgewogen ist. Viel Extrakt im Abgang. Faszinierend und relativ reichhaltig und breit. 13% | Trinkzeit 2022-2029“ 16.5/20 | J. Robinson | www.jancisrobinson.com

“Der Karthäuser ist reichhaltiger als die anderen Weine des Jahrgangs, mit einer fast zähen Textur und einem mittelschweren Körper. Der Wein ist weniger blumig und zitrisch und verschlossener, aber mit ausgezeichneter Säure. Der Wein hebt sich durch seine Würze von den anderen Weinen ab und hat eiserne Aspekte, braucht aber noch Zeit, um sich vollständig zu öffnen. Schraubverschluss. 13,0% Alkohol.” 93+/A | C. Kolm | TheFineWineReview

Der 2021er – Ein ganz klassischer Riesling

Der 2021er Riesling Karthäuser vom Weingut Tesch aus Langenlonsheim hat sich deshalb zu einem solch knackigen und spannungsgeladenen und zugleich auch ausgereiften Beispiel entwickelt. Die Frucht ist pur und kristallklar, mit Pfirsich, Limette und Grapefruit, dazu kommen Melisse und Minze. Ein kaum wahrzunehmender Restzucker schmeichelt der Frucht und besänftigt die Säure, gleichwohl ist diese immer deutlich als treibende Kraft im Hintergrund zu spüren. Ein ganz klassischer Riesling.

2020 KARTHÄUSER | Tesch Riesling trocken

The 2020 Riesling Karthäuser is discreet and fine on the clear and elegant nose, which reveals a ripe and slightly flinty-scented bouquet of ripe, red apples with notes of crushed (sand) stones. Dense and concentrated on the palate, this is a stunningly rich yet still elegant, fine and structured Karthäuser with fine tannins and a certain phenol reduction that asks for more aeration. This is an impressive terroir wine with a long and salty finish. Very promising. 12.5% alcohol.

A whole hillside of wild herbs and flowers burst from this diamond-bright dry riesling. So precise and pure, a straight line shooting into the core of the crystal. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

The nose here is spicy with white pepper, and a dusty/powdered aspect to the red fruits. The mouth has brilliant, penetrating acidity, and it is round and chewy with red fruits. The acidity makes this wine mouthwatering and there is very good energy, a noble austerity, and relative fullness of body.
94+/A | TheFineWineReview – Claude Kolm

Intriguing nose with headily floral notes and really quite rich on the palate but tightened up on the end. Big enough to drink with food. Delicious already but probably not for the very long term.

2019 KARTHÄUSER | Tesch Riesling trocken

From weathered red sandstone in a warm, southwest-facing vineyard, the 2019 Riesling Karthäuser is beautifully clear, ripe, intense and pure on the complex, terroir-driven nose with its smoky, white fruit aromas and notes of milled stones. Round and piquant on the palate, this is an intense, tight, complex and persistent dry Riesling. It reveals the complex and structured terroir expression that makes the Laubenheimer Karthäuser an outstanding wine almost every year. Tasted as a sample in May and then from bottle in June 2020.

Drop everything now, because this is oh so serious, but oh so exciting. At once warm and cool, mouthwatering and ripe with a very long, complex herb and mineral finale. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
95 | jamessuckling.com – Stuart Pigott

Really quite exotic and intense on the nose already. A veritable bouquet of scented lilies. Lovely already and verging on opulent. A real charmer with notes of lime syrup, though a bone-dry finish.

2018 KARTHÄUSER | Tesch Riesling trocken

From warm, early-ripening terroir, Tesch’s 2018 Karthäuser Riesling Trocken offers a clear and bright bouquet with intense and ripe fruit aromas but also a distinctive purity and coolish character. Fullbodied and juicy yet fresh and precise, this is a powerful but also well-structured and sustainable dry Riesling cultivated on weathered red sandstone soils. The wine reveals enormous mineral vitality and tension on the sustainable finish, but it also doesn’t deny the sunny vintage. “That’s what we are looking for,” says Martin Tesch. “The vintage is part of the terroir, and I want to smell and sniff the vintage still in ten years from this wine.” He will. Tasted from AP 12 19 in August 2019.

Tesch’s Laubenheimer Karthäuser is from weathered red sandstone soils. It shows some spice to strawberry and citric fruits, a medium-weight body, good freshness, and notable raciness. Last digits of A.P. Nr. 12 19. 12.5% stated alcohol.
92/A | THE FINE WINE REVIEW – Claude Kolm

The maroon one, grown on a weathered sandstone south-west-facing amphitheatre that’s a little suntrap. The first vineyard to be picked. Fairly broad and rich with a certain graininess of texture and slightly less obvious acidity than some of its stablemates. There’s a little meatiness to this particular Riesling. Distinctive. 12.5% | Drink 2019 – 2025

2017 KARTHÄUSER | Tesch Riesling trocken

From a well-protected, southwest-facing vineyard on weathered red sandstone, the early-ripening 2017 Karthäuser Riesling Trocken is very clear and fresh on the deep and intense, complex and wellconcentrated yet precise and spicy, herbal/floral and lemon-scented bouquet with its discreet flinty notes. Full-bodied and round but also pure, fresh and mineral on the palate, this is a complex and pretty powerful dry Riesling with a long and structured, powerful and sustainable finish that also reveals some fine but firm tannins and good acidity. An impressive, terroir-driven and age-worthy Riesling that needs pork rather than just fish as a pairing partner. Tasted two times in July and August 2019 (AP 08 18). Drinking Date 2022 -2040

Needs some aeration for the wild berries to enrich the intensely herbal bouquet, but there’s already a ton of white peaches on the palate and mineral acidity that energizes this tightly wrapped package. Dramatic and austere finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
93 | jamessuckling.com – Stuart Pigott

Amphitheatre of weathered sandstone facing south west retains warmth and its grapes are the first to ripen. Broad, earthy nose with immediate appeal on the nose and then very pronounced acidity. Very much a game of two halves, this wine. I’d wait until next year before broaching it to see how the nose and palate integrate. Really vibrant on the palate but the acidity dominates for now. Drink: 2019-2024.
