2006. Rich, filtered apple gold. Nose of Bosc pear, baked lemon, warm yellow apple, lemon tart, coconut husk, dry sage, roasted almond, and honey crystal. Palate shows honey flash before flood of lemon juices, lime juice and pith, sweet grapefruit and lemongrass. Sweet at 16, balanced and finishing dry and refreshing!

Tasted blind. Medium dark gold color, heavy like oil in the glass. Huge, sweet nose. Notes of ripe apricot, candied Meyer lemons, some petrol and crushed stone, and a bunch of spice. Super rich in the mouth. A finish that lasts forever. Several of us guess the wine and the vintage. My white WOTN. Awesome.

Deep gold. Apricot, marmalade, oyster shells. Slightly sweet with a rounded lush glycerin full palate. Very broad and lush with a very long finish.

Such a singular wine. 2013 is deep, powerful and seriously complex with buzzing acidity and lift. A touch of botrytis from the vintage that is well integrated. Massive length. Seamlessly balanced and showing superbly well right now.

Just phenomenal Alsatian Riesling - big ass nose of tropical fruit led a panoply of apricot, tangerine, baked apple and baking spice. Perfectly aged and always on the verge of sweet, lifting the tension while never taking it there. Voluptuous.

Medium gold color, heavy like oil in the glass. Crazy nose. Tropical at first. Notes of apricot, petrol, pineapple, gravel and some blood orange. Rich and sweet with some additional honeysuckle in the mouth. Over the night the sweetness gave way to deeper fruit and the structure/acidity powered up. Improved every hour. Special juice.

Always so thrilling to taste this special Riesling from Trimbach. Although still youthful, it shows incredible precision and depth. Tangerine, petrol, orange peel and wet stone. It finishes with terrific length and focus. Such an amazing expression of Riesling.
