Trimbach Riesling 2010

Trimbach Riesling Reserve, Ribeauville, AOC Alsace, France 2010

Trimbach – a family owned negociant, with over 40ha of grand cru vineyard.

Natural cork closure, 13% abv, widely available, about £18.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, pale intensity lemon, showing tears.

Nose: clean on the nose, with medium (+) intensity, developing, with aromas of lime, white grapefruit zest and candle wax, with a hint of warmer tropical fruit.

Palate: a dry wine, with high acidity, with a slight gummy grip, with medium alcohol and a medium (+) body with a lightly oily texture, of medium intensity, with flavours of fresh lime juice, ripe white grapefruit, and lemon pith.  A medium (+) length with a clean slightly gummy finish.

Quality: a good quality wine, with balanced fresh acidity and alcohol, which are in harmony with the intensity of flavour.  A wine of modest complexity and concentration, but with a good length.   This wine is drinking now, and will keep, and there are signs of evolution with lime verging on bergamot oil together with a waxy note, but it does not have the intensity or concentration to support further evolution in cellar.
