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 EnthusiastPure citrus zest rises from the glass: lovely, ripe lemon and zesty lime. The palate reinforces these flavors in a rapier-like fashion, with drive and energy in a very linear energetic way. This seem like an elixir or a tonic full of vim, all informed by a central dynamic freshness. This has barely blossomed but promises much future pleasure. This genie should be contained in its bottle for a while longer before letting it loose. It's something to look forward to. Drink 2020–2035.
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.
James SucklingAromas of dried lemons, flowers and minerals. Just hints of cream. Full body, lots of fruit and a minerally, sliced apple character. Very long, salty and flinty.
