GL Trimbach Riesling tasting 10/25/17. Floral grapefruit and minerals on nose with richness and firm structure and focus and long finish. Yum. A hint of bread?

The cork should have stayed in, but it was popped and my goodness was this an angry baby at first! Tons of petrol and acid at first, slowly shedding some baby fat and hinting at all the pretty flowers, citrus fruits and spice. What a wine! Give it time, I can only imagine how lovely it would be older

Notes of kerosene, citrus, mandarin and lime. Nice depth. Still so super young & needs cellar time but I already liked the "cooler" character of this guy.

Limes, lemon verbena, wet slate some petrol and an endless palate. So elegant and sophisticated with notes of gardenia as the wine sat in the glass. Glorious and still vibrant.

Drank beautifully. So glad we didn't decant it as the evolution was rather intriguing. Straight out of the bottle, petrol and grapefruit dominated the nose. A rather honeyed mid-palate stood out like a sore thumb, but the precision and length undeniable. At this point I had concerns with the bottle's storage, but as the night progressed, the wine started sorting itself out. Impeccable harmony. The nose started developing that chamomile note that I so love in older Rieslings. Slate, layers of fruit ranging from lime to peaches, petrol, and mint. The palate - super mineral, hay, candied lemon, apricot, honey (not disjointed anymore). Laser precision, with a dry long finish. Notably, this looks a bit more developed than the 08' CFE drank about 6 months ago. Don't think that should be the case, despite how delicious the wine was - so I think this bottle's provenance may have not been as pristine.

Man ångrar att man inte dricker mer Alsace-riesling. Denna känns härligt mogen. Fudge, honung och grillad ananas med bra syra. Väldigt balanserad.
