2015 Kirchberg Riesling VDP Grosse Lage
Heymann-Löwenstein, Deutschland
Peony and carnation perfume, fennel and piquant peach kernel combine for an attention-getting nose. Luscious flesh of white peach lends welcome generosity on a polished, subtly creamy palate, setting this wine somewhat in contrast with the relative austerity and pithiness that characterized most of Löwensteins other single-site bottlings of this vintage. Chalk dust, fresh ginger and white pepper serve for intrigue and incisive invigoration on a vibrant finish mouthwateringly laced with saline, maritime mineral notes. “This was kind of boring right after the bottling,” remarked Löwenstein. Well, it certainly got over that quickly! (For reasons laid out in my coverage of this estate’s 2014s, the label here refers to Laubach in large script solely via the initial “L,” while “Terroir Laubach” appears below that in minuscule print. The name in fact refers to a specific geological formation that is unusually high in active calcaire for the Mosel. And speaking of minuscule, for reasons noted in the present estate introduction, you will have to squint or use a magnifying glass to find the letters “GG" on this wines label, signifying Grosses Gewächs.)
