Réserve Alsace Riesling 2011

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 !

Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Clos Saint Urbain Rangen de Thann Pinot Gris 2009

Lush and full throttled with orange peel, pear and tangerine fruit tones accented by a hint of honey and spice. Had nice freshness on the palate from subtle minerality. Orange peel, peach and ripe pear fruit flavors. Broad finish with just a hint of heat. — 21 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Alsace Chasselas 2016

Complex, ripe, floral nose. Palate weight is a tad stodgy with an oily, viscous attack but the sappy peach and pear fruit is appealing followed a ripe, fleshy cantaloupe and mango dimension that is lovely. The Alsatian terroir resonates loudly in the aromatics of this one, taking me right back to Colmar. — 11 days ago

Blanc de Noir Alsace AOC Pinot Noir

Несколько концентрировано. Чуть сладковато, чуть пряно. Карамельное яблоко с имбирем, хвоя, петрушка. Симпатично, но сочетание сладко/пряно - не совсем мой стиль. На второй день утонченней — 17 days ago

Crémant d'Alsace Brut Pinot Noir Rosé

It was a bubbly night - bright salmon colored sparkling rose. Strawberry & other fruit notes. Surprisingly good with the amazing swordfish here @Juniper Hill - swordfish gets a 10. — 15 days ago

My Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. You know what they say, “bring the heat, bring the sweet!”

On the nose; mellowed petroleum, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, stone fruit, hint of slivered almonds, soft minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers.

The body is full, thick and rich. It’s acidity rounded, softer and really beautiful. Stone fruits; apricots, peaches & yellow nectarines. Ripe green melon, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, hint of slivered almonds, far less petroleum on the palate than the nose, soft chalky minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers. Delicious on its own and a good pair with Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. Coravined glass for pairing.

Interesting this sold previously for $143 on Delectable. I didn’t pay anything close to that upon release. $55+ currently on Wine Searcher. I paid around $27 at release.

Coravin bottle from from 13 weeks ago when we made lettuce wraps. I copied over my notes from 13 weeks ago. It hasn’t lost a step. It’s only gotten even softer & a bit creamier.

Photos of, Trimbach, my Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps, Trimbach family and one of their Vineyards on a day with an amazing sunset.

@Shay A Glad I bought it when I did but, $55 is still a fair price for how its drinking.

Domaine Paul Blanck

Schlossberg Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2011

Pale lemon. Citrus notes and a touch of kerosene. On palate lemon and honey and cumquat. More fruit driven than mineral with white peach evident. More sweet than you would expect from 13.5 % Alcohol. This is the Signature Wine of Paul Blanck - the Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling. A lovely Riesling from 375ml in this case. — 11 days ago

Le Brutal de Jean-Marc Alsace Gewürztraminer Blend

I drank the glass i ordered a bit too quickly. Lots of apple notes, a lingering finish, yet in its own funky way super refreshing. Perfect late afternoon sipper! — 19 days ago
