2017 trimbach, riesling clos st hune
Why We're Buying
Trimbach Clos. Ste. Hune Riesling is deceptive when young. It takes years to reveal its nuance and complexity. Proper cellaring can unlock beautiful layers of acidity mixed with notes of flint, citrus, beeswax, and freshly made bread. In 2017, Food and Wine hailed Trimbach Clos. Ste. Hune Riesling as "one of the world's greatest white wines." From 2019 to 2020, the riesling appreciated 37.5%.
Juicy, fresh white peach on the nose of this wine is framed by lemon. Zesty headiness presses pleasure buttons in the brain with ethereal lift. The palate echoes that zesty, juicy lemon theme, teetering between tart freshness and aromatic abundance. Bone dry, incisive and concentrated, the wine is gorgeous. Wait for it to unfold. Drink 2025–2045.
