2018 Löhrer Berg 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.

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 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.

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 | JAMESUCKLING.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.
