Mid Gold and crystal clear. Trademark aromas of Lychee with a touch of nutmeg. Lychee and honey on the full bodied palate. I have seen very long drinking windows for this Cuvée but for me this is ready to drink with very little acid. It remains a delicious drink and one of the 1001 Wines.

January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

Delicious and shocked it was gewürztraminer. It was sweet/botrytis like, but not overly so. I didn’t pick up lychee or honeyed pear that I usually do with this grape. Touch of petrol. My guess was Alsace Pinot Gris in vindage tardives style. At least I got the country and region.

Mid to deep Lemon in colour with brilliant clarity. Notes of Lychee and a hint of nutmeg. Very much alive at 10 years of age. Typical Gewürztraminer palate to be luscious and unctuous on the mid palate but to finish dry. I was expecting this wine to be more developed than it was - this has another 5 years in it. A thoroughly delicious wine and still fresh. One of the 1001 Wines.

Great nose but the palate is kind of out of whack. Maybe a hot/ off bottle

Begrudgingly giving this a good score even though the Trimbach people were rather rude. This is seriously aromatic in the best possible way. Feels like the rare white wine you can almost "chew". Would love to see it in 5 years.
