Trimbach Réserve Riesling 2013
Winemaker Notes :
Pale bright yellow straw color. Aromas of lemon peel, honeyed fruit, and menthol on the nose. Ripe, supple and rich, yet lean and precise with excellent mineral character.
Wine EnthusiastSlight hints of evolution are immediately apparent in the lifted notes of dried lemon peel. The palate is taut and concentrated, straight-laced and upright. This is all about linearity, focus and tension. Have it now or wait for it, it is worth witnessing at any stage. Prepare to be refreshed and revived. Drink now until 2025.
Wine SpectatorAn austere, monolithic white, with intense acidity driven by abundant minerality. Subtle notes of melon rind, lemon preserves, ground white pepper and spring forest should gain momentum with additional air or cellar time. Best from 2019 through 2026. 300 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateSourced from predominantly own vines in Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr and Bergheim the 2013 Riesling Reserve represents an archetype of Riesling from the limestoney Ribeauvillé area. Rich, intense and concentrated on the clear and aromatic, lemony and slightly smoky nose this is a full-bodied and concentrated, very well focused, mineral and racy-piquant Riesling that needs some years to get more round and elegant. The finish is pure and lemon-fresh, somewhat edgy but well concentrated and powerful. In a good vintage Trimbach produces 40,000 bottles of this Réserve but in 2013 and 2014 as well as in 2010 only 25,000 bottles were made.
