Trimbach Riesling 2010

Image shown may not reflect the same size as the product listed

Trimbach Riesling 375ml 2010       
Sku: 35006

The classic grape of Alsace. At once delicate and vital, its intense fruit is given great length by a backbone of crisp acidity producing some of the world’s greatest and long-lasting wines.

Tasting notes
Beautiful in color with a hint of green on the edge, this wine needs a few more months to reveal its potential and will age gracefully another few years. The nose is developed and shows a hint of mineral flavor associated with good ripeness and acidity and a lingering clean and dry finish. It is ready to drink now but has the potential to age another five years.

Rating
 Steve Tanzer 89 points
Alkaline, saline and generally maritime scents strikingly mark the Trimbach 2010 Riesling, whose firm palate impression is complimented by the sort of irresistible juiciness that characterized the corresponding Pinot Blanc, but predictably backed by more citrus and energy. Finishing salinity stimulates the salivary glands. Pierre and Jean Trimbach think this is their most successful classic Riesling bottling since 1990 and I find that assessment entirely plausible. This outstanding value should merit engagement through at least 2018.

Wine maker notes
The specific vineyard plots for Trimbach Riesling are selected each year by Pierre and Jean Trimbach. The grapes are normally harvested in late October and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. There is no secondary malolactic fermentation in order to maintain as much natural acidity as possible.

Food pairing
Served best with marinated, grilled, or sauced fish, and sushi. Delicious with traditional Alsace dishes like onion tarte, sauerkraut, and pork.
