TESCH Riesling

2020 KRONE | Tesch Riesling trocken

The 2020 Riesling Krone opens with classic Tesch nose: very clear, precise and elegant, with fine but not exuberant citrus fruit and Golden Delicious apple aromas over a fine mineral background. Pure, piquant and immediately salty on the palate, this is a stringent and finely racy Krone with grip, tension and noble bitters on the finish. Possibly one of the most “Tesch” Rieslings of the 2020 single-vineyard collection. The finish is long, pure, dense and stimulating. Excellent. 12.5% alcohol.

Very crisp, dry and lemony, this medium-bodied dry riesling has tons of lemon-zest and ripe-apple character. Very crisp with a slightly austere, mineral finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

The vineyard here is adjacent to the Löhrer Berg and has loess and limestone soils. Because the vineyard is not close to the forest, there’s not a lot of water here and yields are low. Martin said that he took grapes off the vines where there was a lot of hydric stress, and so the yields here were low. The wine has a pure, floral Riesling nose. The mouth is complex and richer than the Löhrer Berg, multifaceted, sumptuous, and with power and elegance to its green and yellow apple fruit.

Really quite rich on the nose with apparently softer acidity than some other bottlings. Already broad and quite charming but with enough texture on the finish to keep it interesting.

2019 KRONE | Tesch Riesling trocken

Tesch’s 2019 Riesling Krone combines ripe and elegant Riesling aromas with the refreshing and iron-scented purity of the weathered red sandstone soils of the Laubenheimer Krone. Elegant and piquant on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied and pretty round but racy dry Riesling with a fine mineral grip on the tight yet fruity-aromatic finish. The 2019 Krone is substantial and should be a beauty in 6-10 years. Tasted as a sample in May and again as a bottled wine in June 2020.

No question, positive thinking is good, but that makes so much more sense when you have a joyful and expressive wine like this (50 shades of lemon!) in the glass. Juicy yet delicate flavors keep you hanging on in there. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Spicy nose with real attack. Refined and interesting. These wines certainly make the case for single-vineyard bottlings. Crunchy, with green-apple fruit and nice grainy texture on the finish. Bravo!

2018 KRONE | Tesch Riesling trocken

“The terroir of the Krone [weathered red sandstone and light loam soils] suffered from the drought in 2018, and it wasn’t easy to find the right fruit to produce the wine we want,” says Martin Tesch. Given this reality, his citrus-yellow colored 2018 (Laubenheimer) Krone Riesling Trocken is a remarkable success. The wine shows a pure and flinty, dusty-mineral nose as well as fresh and lemon-scented fruit with good ripeness and concentration. Rich and juicy but elegant and still refreshing on the palate, this is a tightly woven dry Riesling with power, structure and good tension. The mineral freshness and purity are really enormous here. Tasted from AP 11 19 in August 2019. | Drinking Date 2020-2033.

From weathered red sandstone and light loam soils, the Laubenheimer Krone is light and racy with good acidity and grapefruit and lemon aromas and flavors. 12.5% stated alcohol. Last digits of A.P. Nr.: 11 19.
92/A | THE FINE WINE REVIEW – Claude Kolm

A loess and sandstone south-east-facing slope exposed to considerable wind. Martin Tesch describes the wine as having ‘a somewhat edgy disposition’ in his glamorous tasting booklet but actually on the nose it smells particularly settled. Beautifully balanced ripe Riesling fruit on the nose and almost exhibitionistically fruity on the palate. There is certainly structure here. Lots to chew on the end in fact, so perhaps wait awhile before broaching this particularly persistent wine. 12.5% | Drink 2020 – 2027.

2017 KRONE | Tesch Riesling trocken

From weathered red sandstone and light loam soils, the intensely yellow-colored 2017 (Laubenheimer) Krone Riesling Trocken is deep, ripe and complex on the flinty, refreshing, bright, mineral and citrus-scented nose. Some herbal aromas complete the bouquet of this expressive dry Riesling. Lush, round and intense on the palate, with a linear and finessed, nervy-mineral course on the palate, this is a tight and complex, salty and sustainable dry Riesling with a long and tensioned, crystalline and elegant finish. Still young and compact but sustainable and promising. An excellent effort. Tasted at the domain in July and at home in August 2019 (AP 07 18). | Drinking Date 2022-2040

Effusive lemon-curd note on the nose, then a full, juicy palate with some nice structure, making this an impressive dry riesling. Long, powerful finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

The golden Crown vineyard is on a steep slope facing south east with a mixture of decalcified loess and weathered sandstone. Wide diurnal temperature variation due to night-time westerlies. Lighter nose than the Löhrer Berg. Lifted and elegant – sort of reminds me of the character of Chassagne’s Caillerets. Then a strong lemon, almost lemon syrup, finish. Warm and rich on the finish. This one builds towards the end. Drink: 2018-2024.
