2021 Trimbach Riesling

2021 Trimbach Riesling

Trimbach Riesling is a standard bearer among fine dry Riesling wines produced on this planet. Yes, dry Riesling! Bone dry! Totally and unapologetically so. This is the way the Trimbach family prefer it. And they've been producing Alsace wines for almost four centuries now, long enough to make up their minds over the matter. And Trimbach Riesling is already a proven winner of a white wine right here in beautiful downtown Austin, Texas. Pure aristocratic and floral Riesling aromas suggestive of lemon peel (like the color of the label), linden flower, apricot, peach and a kind of pulverized stone; firm and dry, engaging the palate with a focused and penetrating flavor that then spreads out resplendent and refreshing across the tongue, leaving the entire mouth just watering away and waiting for more. C'mon downtown, grab a bottle or two of this stuff and get right with Riesling!

2015 Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Émile

2015 Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Émile

Vibrant straw-green. The penetrating, explosive nose offers yellow apple, musky ginger, flint and chamomile. Dense, sappy and highly concentrated; peach and balsamic flavors are complicated by a hint of crystallized citrus peel. Displays lovely balance from start to very long finish. This is a noteworthy step up in concentration and complexity from Trimbach’s Mandelberg and Schlossberg Rieslings, however delightful those last two wines are in 2015. In keeping with the hot, dry 2015 vintage, this strikes me as sweeter than usual for the Fréderic Emile, though by the time it goes on sale in seven or eight years, it will taste less sweet than it is today. Clearly, the berries and bunches were extremely small in 2015, and so the wine is especially concentrated, rich and glyceral, all of which contribute a dimension of sweetness. However, the small berries didn’t give much juice and only 26,000 bottles were produced in 2015, instead of the more usual 40,000. Always a blend of grapes grown in the Geisberg and Osterberg sites, the wine’s makeup in 2015 is about 60/40 in favor of the Osterberg, but not surprisingly, the Geisberg’s presence really comes through in a hot year like 2015. I personally like it more when the Osterberg stands out, but that said, this is a really outstanding wine in the making, one of the best young FEs I have memory of. Drink 2024‑2038. Rated 95+. ‑ Ian D'Agata, vinous.com August, 2016
