Great pickup by @Steven Perlman during Alsace visit. All about ripping acidity and bone dry mineral and petrol notes with the citrus and orchard fruit now taking on a supporting role with some floral stuff in the mix. Impressive now and should gain complexity

Delicious & serious / kind of rich, hint of leesy-ish note on the nose but with mouthwatering acidity / rounder on palate with a hit of acid to finish

Lemon/lime, honeydew, jasmine, raging acid, dry as bone. Big rubber hose...some love, some hate. Fun wine...

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.

Pure and simple petrol, hate it or like it. For me utterly great.
