Riesling Schlossberg Grand Cru 2018 Trimbach
€ 52,96 (inkl. MwSt.)
Deep greenish straw colour. Surprisingly peachy nose (as opposed to the steeliness of many Trimbach Rieslings). Floral (lilies?), broad palate with a suggestion of violet cachous. The really impressive aspect of this wine is the grippy finish and persistence. Plush, satiny texture. I'm pretty aware of the alcohol on this wine – much more so than on the Sélection de Vieilles Vignes. Masses of burnished extract. I'd keep this awhile to develop more complex tertiary characters.
