2018 Trimbach Riesling Alsace

SKU #1516085 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Slight reduction still shows on the nose of this wine, but promises freshness. The palate comes in with uncommon brightness and slenderness for 2018 and seems to make a show of its uncompromising tartness, but there is concentration galore. The finish is dry and all about zesty citrus. (AK) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A sleek, mouthwatering white, marrying a pronounced petrol-laced overtone with a creamy range of apricot, persimmon and yellow apple fruit and preserved lemon, pine and anise aromatics. Racy finish. (AN) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

Outer quote mark The 2018 'regular' bottling of Riesling from the Trimbach family is quite youthful and asks for a bit of aeration before drinking right now, but with some time to open up, it offers up a classic nose of apple, tart orange, a touch of petrol, dried flowers and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has an excellent core of fruit, with good acids and grip, fine balance and a very long, youthfully complex finish. The elevage for this bottling is done in both stainless steel tanks and cement vats, and out of the blocks, one can sense the cement portion of the blend, as this young wine still comes across as a tad dusty in personality. But, I am sure this is simply a youthful phase and this will disappear with a bit of bottle age. As this is a blended wine made from a variety of vineyards and soil types, it does not have the mineral signature of most Trimbach Rieslings, but it has depth, complexity and very impressive length and is a very good entry level bottling. Inner quote mark (9/2020)
