Another vintage of this delicious dry Riesling. The 2021 is sleek and fresh, with racy, almost filigreed acidity and flavors of white peach, apple, citrus zest and sea salt. What we love most about Dreissigacker's entry-level trocken is its purity — there is so much minerality in this elegant, versatile wine.

Ever since Jancis Robinson described a white from Klaus-Peter Keller as the “Montrachet” of Germany, we have been trained to think of the Rheinhessen as a bit like Burgundy. In the Mosel the wines are usually sweet and the soils are slate. In the Rheinhessen the wines are mostly dry and the soils are limestone. Anybody who loves magnificent dry white wines that delineate different vineyard sites and age brilliantly in the cellar will be drawn to the Rheinhessen.

Jochen Dreissigacker was among those drawn to the wines of the Rheinhessen. He gave up a career in accounting to go learn wine with, among others, the great Keller himself. Then he took over his family winery in Bechteim, the historic center of wine production in the area. It's just one village over from the better-known Westhofen, where you find many of the region’s top Grand Crus and Keller’s own winery. Though Jochen has holdings in Westhofen too, he is a big believer in Bechteim's own great terroir.

Jochen’s wines have this in common with Burgundy: there is a clear hierarchy from the more general expressions of his terroir (like a regional or village Burgundy), up to magnificent Grand Crus.

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
