A very nice Beaujolais, well worth the money. Take a sip , close your eyes and you’ll see Auberge Le Cep and the cathedral in Fleurie. — 13 days ago
This wine is absolutely bursting with ripe berries on the palette...incredible. Let it breathe a bit, even a day. This may be my favorite wine right now...and I just finished off the last bottle in my cellar😢. — 6 months ago
Color : White
Wine estate : Trimbach
Designation : Alsace
Name : Riesling Réserve
Country : France
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : Staying in Alsace for 3 days, we make a small stop in Strasbourg and in a small restaurant next to the Cathedral and the edge of the Aar. To accompany a goose pâté and a local sauerkraut, we take a wine tasted at the estate 2 hours ago, a Riesling Reserve from Trimbach. A marvel with her golden dress and her fat tears. A petroled nose, white flowers and citrus. In the mouth, explosion of flavor with a final on the caramel. A wonderful discovery!
En séjour en Alsace pendant 3 jours, nous faisons une petite halte à Strasbourg et dans un petit restaurant à côté de la Cathédrale et au bord de l’Aar. Pour accompagner un pâté d’oies et une choucroute locale, nous prenons un vin dégusté au domaine 2h auparavant, un Riesling Réserve de chez Trimbach. Une merveille avec sa robe dorée et ses larmes grasses. Un nez pétrolé, fleurs blanche et d’agrumes. En bouche, explosion de saveur avec un final sur le caramel. Une magnifique découverte !

Huge wine. Cathedral legs, substantial residual sugars and fruit forward (plums stand out) delicious — a month ago
Deep red color, thick cathedral legs after swirling, aromas of cinnamon and strawberries, robust fruit taste with a hint of strawberry — 5 months ago
This has aged nicely since we had a bottle 2 years ago. A big bold red, lots of dark berries, cassis. One more in the cellar. Trying to decide how long to wait. — 5 months ago
Dark and fruity with good body — 8 months ago
Celebrating a 10 year anniversary only happens once. Tonight is all about trying to recreate as much of our wedding day as possible. I cooked two pasta dishes the restaurant in Cortona made for us family style. While good, there’s no substitution for truly well done Italian cooking from the old world. What the restaurant did for our reception was truly amazing and done with wonderful Italian hospitality. Those of you that know my wine habits, I’m the guy who brings Bordeaux to an Italian wedding reception and that’s what I did. After all, It was our/my wedding. I brought an 1986 Haut Bages Liberal magnum with me from the U.S.. So in remembrance of our wedding reception, we are enjoying another magnum on our 10th anniversary tonight. I was concerned about finding another magnum in good drinking condition. However, this bottle 10 years further removed is better than the one we enjoyed at our wedding. In magnum and larger formats, I think it has another 5-10 years left of good drinking ahead...properly stored of course. On the nose; dark cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, poached strawberries, cherries, dry cranberries, a touch of pyrazine, black rich earth, stones, old tobacco leaf, cedar, saddle-wood, baking spices and dark fresh floral bouquet. The body is somewhere between medium to full. The tannins are nicely resolved. Fruits are ripe, fresh and juicy 31 years down the road. Blackberries, dark cherries, poached strawberries, cherries, dry cranberries & pomegranate extract. Black licorice, a touch of pyrazine, black rich earth, wet stones, dry top soil, old tobacco leaf, light expresso roast, softly understated asian spice, mint, cedar, saddle-wood, baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon, light clove & a hint of nutmeg), violets and dark fresh floral bouquet. The acidity is round and like a waterfall over the palate. The finish is rich, ripe, balanced, well textured, elegant and lasts well over a minute. The quality of this magnum wildly exceeded our expectations. One would think this bottle was stored at a Chateau it’s entire life prior to my purchase. The alcohol comes in at 12.5%; which is one of the reasons I love the good years of 80’s Bordeaux and prior. Too bad alcohol levels are negatively impacted higher now and going forward due to climate change. Additionally in some cases, because of producer marketing decisions largely based on consumers who crave higher alcohol levels! Sofia, I am lucky to have found you to walk through life together. I love you now and forever. What a 10th celebration tonight and a celebration of our life together. All under a nearly full moon. Oooow, I ❤️ you!
