Directly from Trimbach january 2017
Celery root and ham hock, brown spices, mint, and pit fruit preserves rise from the glass of Trimbach 2002 Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive. Honeyed, spicy, and (at over 8o grams residual sugar) surprisingly sweet for the house style, it nevertheless doesn’t at all lack for brightness. On the contrary, there is lip-smacking primary juiciness here and a refinement and delicacy in the finish of rose petals, spices, mint, resin that stretches from ear to ear. A rather dusty, obvious botrytis character and some extraneous sweetness currently accrued several late-harvested Trimbach 2001s I tasted. The rarest of these, however, put on an impressive show.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
A highly aromatic Gewürztraminer, with lots of floral, blood orange and candied pink grapefruit notes. Light, tangy acidity balances this elegant, off-dry wine, and a hint of sugared gum drop shows on the finish.
