Trimbach Riesling 2015
|Region||France, Alsace, AOC Alsace|
Wine EnthusiastThe faintest hint of zesty lemon appears on the nose. The dry palate is of a concentrated slenderness, showing intense notes of ripe lemon zest but hinting at richer notions of ripe pear and candied citron. There is real impact, guided by rapier-like freshness and utter precision. This has an almost cleansing quality but is nonetheless imbued with the fruitful generosity of 2015. Lovely now, but sure to develop. Drink now through 2027.
Wine SpectatorA clean-cut and minerally white that offers poached pear, beeswax, apricot and preserved lemon flavors set in a light-bodied, lithe frame. The creamy finish echoes the stony minerality.
