TESCH Riesling

2021 LÖHRER BERG | Tesch Riesling trocken

“The 2021 Riesling Löhrer Berg is still discreet on the nose but clear, bright and fresh, with notes of crushed stones and lemons highlighting the ripe apple and lemon aromas. Round and lush on the palate, this is a dense, ripe, textured, mouthfilling Riesling with still-young phenolic bitters on the finish. This is a surprisingly rich and powerful but still elegant and refreshing Löhrer Berg. 13% stated alcohol.” 92+ | S. Reinhardt | www.robertparker.com

“Wie bei früheren Jahrgängen ist dieser Wein runder und entspannter als der Unplugged, und als solcher wird er einigen mehr zusagen, während andere, mich eingeschlossen, den komplizierteren Unplugged bevorzugen, zumindest solange er jung ist. Der Wein zeigt Aromen von Mineralien und weißen Blüten. Im Mund ist er mittelschwer, mit der bereits erwähnten Rundheit, aber auch mit einer festen, sinnlichen Textur, die eine saftig-bittere Note und Mineralität aufweist. Er braucht etwas Zeit, um sich vollständig zu öffnen. Schraubverschluss. 13,0% Alkohol.” 93/A | C. Kolm | TheFineWineReview

“Wie kann man da widerstehen? Dieser trockene Riesling ist mundfüllend und dennoch kühl und anmutig, mit einer Fülle von Aromen von Limetten und Pflaumen sowie einem Hauch von frischem Salbei. Unter all der Reife liegt eine ausgezeichnete Struktur, und die mineralische Säure unterstreicht die Saftigkeit im langen Abgang.” 94 | S. Pigott | www.jamessuckling.com

“Flasche inklusive Schraubverschluss, nur 1.176 g. Gewachsen auf kiesigem Lehm, von Tesch als “weich, erdig und rund” beschrieben. Die Nase deutet einen hohen Säuregehalt und eine leicht blumige, sogar rosige Note an. Kalkige Trockenheit im Abgang. Wunderbar erfrischend, aber weniger vollmundig als einige der anderen Rieslinge. 13% | Trinkzeit 2022-2026” 16/20 | J. Robinson | www.jancisrobinson.com

2020 LÖHRER BERG | Tesch Riesling trocken

The 2020 Riesling Löhrer Berg offers a deep yet bright, pure, fresh and substantial nose with leafy and spicy white fruit aromas. Firm and piquant on the palate, this is a dense, round and fruity but grippy and stimulating Löhrer Berg with fine mineral acidity and a dense and quite powerful finish. Impressive. 12.5% alcohol.

This reminds me so much of the lime cordial I drank as a child. So juicy that you don’t need to understand anything about riesling to have a party with this dry wine. Super balance from beginning to end! Drink or hold. Screw cap.

This is the oldest Riesling site in the Nahe. It was planted completely with Riesling at the end of the 17th century. There is a good natural water supply here, and so there is a more relaxed expression than in the Unplugged. Forest and bush aromas here are complex. The mouth is rounder with more body and chewiness than the Unplugged. The wine is mineral with green apple fruit. The finish is long and the wine shows brilliant clarity and precision.

Much more complete and satisyfing on the nose than Unplugged. Springs out of the glass with a firm footprint and some of that promised earthiness. Real grainy texture and very good fruit/acid balance.

2019 LÖHRER BERG | Tesch Riesling trocken

The 2019 Riesling Löhrer Berg is beautifully clear, precise and aromatic on the elegant and seamless nose with its flinty, fresh and white/green rather than yellow-fleshed fruit aromas that intertwine with leafy and vegetal notes of fresh peas. The wine offered notes of red-skinned and mealy apples, for example, but also slightly smoked dates and crushed stones in its early stage yet becomes more and more stony now, with some refreshing phenolic notes. The ripeness level is just perfect, though. The loamy-gravelly soils of the Löhrer Berg give a pure, fresh and frisky Riesling with great elegance and finesse and a persistently salty and grippy-mineral finish. Tasted as a sample in May and then from bottle in early August 2020.

The dry-riesling refreshment rocket has lift off! So much energy it almost bowls you over, but there’s not a gram of excess fat on this sleek and toned body. Super clean, long finish. Drink or hold.

Tight and mineral on the nose. And then very rewarding (because of the extra half-degree of alcohol?) on the palate. Generous and round – perhaps too generous for some palates? Creamy texture and ready already. I’ve had some GGs with less appeal …

2018 LÖHRER BERG | Tesch Riesling trocken

From loamy-gravelly soils and bottled with 12.5% alcohol in this exceptionally warm vintage, Tesch’s Langenlonsheimer 2018 Löhrer Berg Riesling Trocken (AP 09 19) offers a clear and fresh yet intense nose with citrus and apple aromas intertwined with somewhat reductive (but attractive!) sur lie scents. Lush and round on the palate, this is an intense and elegant, well-structured and slightly tannic yet also juicy and persistent Löhrer Berg whose deep soils were a benefit in dry years such as 2018. The finish is also tight and fresh and reveals nice grip and phenolic structure. Tasted in August 2019. | Drinking Date 2020-2033.
91 | ROBERT PARKER – The Wine Advocate – Stephan Reinhardt

From loam soils with lots of gravel, this wine has just a slight bit of sweetness betrayed by the delicate acidity. It shows red berry and citric fruits and a light, racy body. Last digits of A.P. Nr: 09 19. 12.5% stated alcohol.
90/B+ | THE FINE WINE REVIEW – Claude Kolm

This means empty mountain. 40-year-old vines on this loamy, gravel-rich site that is particularly fertile. Green juicy apple flavours – bring on the Granny Smiths. Such gorgeous fruit in the middle. Juicy indeed. Neither subtle nor restrained, this should provide early fruity pleasure and more grainy-textured delight in years to come. Very well-judged fruit/acid balance. 12.5% | Drink 2019 – 2025.

2017 LÖHRER BERG | Tesch Riesling trocken

From loamy-gravelly soils in Langenlonsheim and a vineyard that was dedicated exclusively to Riesling 330 years ago, the 2017 Löhrer Berg Riesling Trocken is intense, elegant and sober on the spicy-mineral nose that displays ripe and concentrated fruit intertwined with deep earthy and vegetal notes that add depth and complexity. Lush, round and elegant on the palate, this is a fullbodied, dense and juicy dry Riesling with good grip, structure and length. Although the wine shows a certain maturity on the finish, especially compared to 2018, it is still young and needs another year or two to open up. However, it’s a seriously good Riesling bottled with 12.5% alcohol. Bottled under screwcap. Tasted two times in July and August 2019 (AP 05 18). | Drinking Date 2022 -2035.
90 | ROBERT PARKER – The Wine Advocate – Stephan Reinhardt

A bone-dry riesling that already gives pleasure, thanks to the generous limes and apples and the polish on the medium-bodied palate. Long finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
92 | jamessuckling.com – Stuart Pigott

One of the Nahe’s oldest vineyards, home to Riesling since 1688. Fertile gravelly loam. 40 year-old vines. Real race and depth on the nose. It’s immediately apparent that this is a step up from Unplugged. A note of white pepper and real breadth on the palate. The extract compensates for the high acidity. More broachable than the Unplugged. Lime crystals (and that’s not just because the label is lime green, I swear). Drink: 2018-2022.
