TESCH Riesling

2018 Krone 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. 92 | ROBERT PARKER – The Wine Advocate – Stephan Reinhardt

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. 16.5+ pts. | JANCISROBINSON.COM – Reviewed by Jancis Robinson MW

2017 Krone 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 91 + | ROBERT PARKER – The Wine Advocate – Stephan Reinhardt

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. 93 | JAMESUCKLING.COM – Stuart Pigott

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. 16.5+ pts. | JANCISROBINSON.COM – Reviewed by Jancis Robinson MW
