Trimbach-Riesling-Grand-Cru-Clos-St-Hune-2011

Trimbach, Riesling Grand Cru ''Clos St. Hune'' , 2011

“The chalky, pithy expression of extract richness in Trimbach’s 2011 Riesling Clos Ste-Hune is much more typical of its type not to mention more backward than the impression conveyed by this vintage’s Frederic Emile. But I wouldn’t have expected quite such a carved-in-stone character from this vintage, one in which Frederic Emile too, in its distinctive way – not to mention the majority of Trimbach wines – excels. Piquancy of legume sprouts and fruit pits mingles with smoky, chalky and alkaline notes on a firm, polished palate, leading to an impressively sustained though slightly severe finish. It will suffice, I suspect, to taste this the next time after it is released in several years, and I would expect it to impress through at least 2028.” —The Wine Advocate
