Trimbach Cuvee Frederic Emile Alsace 2005

Trimbach, Cuvee Frederic Emile, Riesling, AOC Alsace, Ribeauville, France 2005

Varietal riesling, natural cork closure, 13%abv, widely available, about £35.

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

Nose: clean on the nose, of pronounced intensity, developing, with aromas of bergamot oil, lemon zest and white grapefruit juice, with hints of warmer stone fruit, honey and pineapple.

Palate: a dry wine, with high acidity, a slight gummy grip, medium (+) alcohol, and a medium (+) body with a slight oily texture, with a medium (+) intensity, with flavours of lemon zest, lime and lemon pith, with warmer apricot and white peach hints.  A long length with a clean slightly gummy finish.

Quality: a very good quality wine, with perfect balance between fresh acidity and alcohol which are harmonious with the flavour intensity. A wine with  a good concentration of flavour and a modest flavour palate, with more on the nose, and a long length. This wine has the balance, acidity and concentration, to continue developing in cellar for a further 5-10 years.
