SKU #1500610 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Initial smoky notes of reduction make way for a pervasive, subtle but luminous lemon freshness on the nose of this wine. The palate shows exquisite concentration in lemon freshness. It's bone dry, vivid and fresh. *#2 Wine of 2020 Enthusiast 100, Editors' Choice* (AK) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Solid white with density and searing dryness and minerality that is very impressive with sliced apples, lemons and white peaches. Super energy. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

I love Alsace! The region is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the wine is sensational! This is a wonderful example of what Riesling does when produced at the level that Trimbach can offer us and is from a block that is only produced on particularly lovely vintages. The nose is slightly petrol wrapped in pear, elderflower, and fresh cut grass. The palate begins with searing lemon acidity but is quickly mellowed by the pear and some honeysuckle notes. The palate then leans out to a finish of limestone, lemon, and jasmine. There's a reason this bottle is rolling in some points and I don't expect it to last long! It has aging potential but man it's drinking beautifully right now!

Trimbach is one of Alsace's greatest producers and the 2017 Trimbach "Selection de Vieilles Vignes" Rieslng is a special bottling only made in special vintages when Trimbach believes the conditions were just right to produce this stellar offering. Right off the bat this wine starts off with beautiful aromas of ocean breeze, petrol, crushed stone and lemon zest while the palate is electric with orchard fruits, citrus, almond skin, chalk and mineral flavors. With more body and heft than the Riesling Reserve this wine has the amazing ability to balance structure, elegance, complexity and weight all while feeling light and airy. This is a beautiful Riesling that is ready to drink now but will handsomely reward 10+ years of cellaring as well.
Top Value! Drink to 2031
