my God, this is even better than it was before. The 375 refers to the years Trimbach has existed. I imagine the 2026 version will be a great celebration of 400 years. Lemon, peach, apricot all texturally bound in a wonderful package, still with great acidity and drive, it’s a stunning FE that for me is neck and neck with Clos Ste. Hune in 2001. No rush to open if you have it but it’s great now. — 5 days ago
Nose of lemon meringue, coconut, and seashells. Very pretty.
Lean and focused on the palate. Lots of citrusy acidity layered with some of the richer tropical notes and minerality. Good length.
Great aperitif for these hotter months and a good value. More please! — 6 days ago
Another instance in the saga for definitive proof that Gassmann is one of the best producers in the Alsace and that his wines can last forever. The nose shows botrytis with notes of honey, dried apricot and sweet candied peach with touches of spice and sweet wildflower. The palate is lush and rich but still somehow restrained. Creamy stone fruit mingles with classic muscat spice and herb going along with just a touch of RS. The finish lingers forever with floral and fruit notes along with acidity that could give it 20 more years. Wow! — 4 hours ago
I might not know it was rosé if blind tasted and I might not mind. But it DOES have that berry thing. Barely but just enough. It is cherry-berry it is mineral it is just fun. And white peaches and salt. And thyme. Hmm. It’s someone to hang out with when you need a friend also when that friend needs to...be food friendly and if your friends don’t like food I’d be concerned. — 12 days ago
Dark ruby. Nose is shy and yields dark black cherry and black flowers. Palate is medium full(!) and gives up tarry black cherry, strong black tea, and a dark floral element with a medium long, dark finish. Almost New World in style (14% abv), but with a dark herbiness replacing the NW cherry fruit. The legendary 2015 vintage made its mark in Alsace as well! A PN for much heartier fare than you might expect from the Germanic regions. Pinot enough for salmon, but Noir enough for beef and balanced enough for both and more! Drink now through 2025. — 16 days ago
