Josephshöfer G.G. 2011 Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt

Tons of burnt diesel and petrol fumes on the nose. Mixed with citrus notes. Same on the palate. Some earth, moss, cedar, lemongrass, extremely burnt peaches, very smooth, good balance, not a lot of acid, but wonderful balance. A lot of complexity for a 2011 vintage. Tastes like it has a lot more age on it than it actually does.

In 1978, Günther Reh, Annegret’s father, acquired Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt in Trier. It was at that time that Annegret Reh-Gartner discovered her love for wine and decided to pursue a career in viticulture, a profession still dominated by men in those days. Since 1983, she has directed the more than 600-year-old estate with commitment and competence. Her pleasure in the product and deep devotion to her native region as well as her quality consciousness and years of contact with customers at home and abroad all helped the wine estate achieve international renown. In addition to the many awards that the estate and its wines earned throughout the years, she personally was recognized with an award: in 1989, she was named “vintner of the year” and was nominated for this “wine industry Oscar” again in 2001 and 2005.

In the more than 25 years during which Annegret Reh-Gartner has directed the wine estate, she made many changes and furthered its development. Achieving high quality has always been the focal point of her endeavors, just as her wines have always been subject to high standards. The conscious decision to reduce the size of the estate to 36 ha (ca. 90 acres) was an important step, for it enabled the estate to work more selectively in its vineyards and further improve quality. The entire team regards each of the estate’s 12 ha (30 acres) of steep sites in the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer valleys as both a wonderful gift and a tremendous challenge.

Annegret Reh-Gartner highly esteems the mineral-rich, filigree style so typical of the wines of all three river valleys. She is thoroughly convinced that no other region can compete with this delicacy and mineral character. For years she has strived with heart and soul to produce top-quality, dry wines with aging potential. Particularly with the climate changes in recent years, the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer valleys have the potential to produce excellent dry wines whose brilliance lies not in their alcohol content, but in their elegance and mineral structure. Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is one of the region’s first estates to successfully offer Grosse Gewächse (great growths). In addition,

Annegret Reh-Gartner is a firm advocate of vineyard classification (VDP), which makes it possible to implement perfect quality management in the vineyard, and cultivate individual parcels with the goal of producing exceptional wines. Annegret Reh-Gartner has been married for more than 20 years to Gerhard Gartner, who defended two Michelin stars in his Aachen-based restaurant Gala for over 10 years. He was recognized as one of the finest chefs of Germany. After taking his final curtain call on the gourmet stage, he devoted himself to his second passion – wine. Gerhard Gartner has stood by his wife with advice and support for many years.
