TESCH Riesling

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.

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.

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.
