Trimbach – 22/02/2012

Classic Riesling 2009
Ripe tropical citrus notes but retained steeliness, and was quite expressive on the palate with texture and ripeness.

Reserve 2009
Wasn’t as bright or bold, and had a more reductive mineral character with some delicate floral notes.

Cuvée Frederic Emile Riesling 2006
The famous one, and a blend of two Grand Cru vineyards, had a slightly oxidative ripe stone fruit aroma and some richness from some botrytised fruit, and a little warmth that will integrate given some time.

Clos Ste Hune Riesling 2006
A very contemplative wine, both hauntingly ethereal and complex, and yet rich and oily in texture. It is a wine that deserves serious ageing.

Cuvée Frederic Emile Selection des Grains Nobles 2001
Had developed a very truffle peach blossom aroma with some mushroom creaminess on the palate.

Selection de Grains Noble Gewürztraminer 1989
Oppressively reductive and nutty, expressing some smoky mature cheese, with plenty of life left in it.

Clos Ste Hune
