Riesling Selection de Vieilles Vignes, Trimbach 2012 (WA90)
|Wine Style:||Dry White, Medium Bodied|
Rating: Wine Advocate 90
Trimbach’s 2012 Riesling Sélection de Vieilles Vignes – made from old vine selections from the Rosacker, Muehlforst, Vorderer Haguenau and Pflaenzer lieux-dits – is intense, precise and very elegant on the nose, where herbal flavors intertwine with bright fruit aromas. Rich, full-bodied, very intense and homogeneously ripe (maybe partly overripe) on the juicy textured palate this powerful and concentrated, highly elegant and beautifully balanced Riesling reveals a long and complex finish along with a salty and lemon-fresh aftertaste. Perfectly dry and with ripe tannins it should age for a decade or more.
