2017 Trimbach Schlossberg Riesling Grand Cru Alsace

SKU #1517341 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The nose of this wine is shy but centers on tart lemon freshness. The palate adds pithy texture and an earthy tone, but leaves no doubt about its stony concentration. For now this wine is taut, tight and young, and still needs to relax. A vibrant Amalfi lemon verve on the bone-dry finish gives a glimpse of pleasure to come. *Cellar Selection* (AK) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The Trimbach family, with its significant holdings in grand crus, has not eagerly adopted grand-cru labeling in Alsace. They remained committed to their traditional wines—including some that are blends of grand crus and some that are single plots within them. In fact, this is only the second vintage of a Schlossberg bottling that Trimbach has released since buying five acres of the grand cru in 2012 (2014 was the first). This is riesling planted in granite that gives the sensation of sucking on stone, even as the heady richness of the fruit gives the wine a supple grandeur. The apple and white-peach flavors are ripe and persistent, commanding attention, their powerful structure needing years of bottle age to grow more accessible and accommodating. It will provide delicious drinking along the way, with a heritage-breed pork chop alongside a braise of apples and red cabbage. Inner quote mark (8/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A mineral-driven white, with lots of petrol, smoke and fleur de sel on the nose and palate. Sleek and linear in style, with vivid acidity driving the tightly meshed flavors of crunchy white peach, Marcona almond and pink grapefruit sorbet, ending with a creamy finish. (AN) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Luminous straw-green. Perfumed aromas of lemon verbena, apple and minerals. Then dense and juicy, featuring apple, lime and flinty flavors. Lively acidity lifts the spicy fruit flavors even on the long back end (usually a granite soil delivers acid sensations on the entry and middle but tapers before the finish). Made from very low yields (20 hL/ha). The best Schlossberg made yet by Trimbach. (ID) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
