Trimbach Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Reserve 2003
The Trimbach 2003 Pinot Gris Réserve was vinified to complete dryness, with very little residual sugar. The wine was fermented in stainless steel vats with no oak aging. Bottling was done in the spring of 2004 to preserve freshness and aging capability. This classical example of Pinot Gris is probably one of their best. Rich and fragrant, the wine is very ripe and harmonious in style, with juicy yellow peach and ripe pear on the nose. It is full-bodied with ripe, smoky, tropical fruit flavors and a long, slightly nutty finish. Served well chilled, this wine is excellent with sushi, salmon, scallops, veal, chicken, and pâtés. Delicious with spicy dishes, it also makes an excellent aperitif.
Golden color, full body, serve very well-chilled to get the crispness still lingering in this wine. Worth decanting for an hour or so before its inner character emerges. I have one more bottle, will report back.
Perhaps just over the hill, but the nose of apples, citrus and a hint of mineral lead to a mouth that was dominated by grass and ethyls..some apple and mineral.
Another one for Christmas consumption
External Reviews for Trimbach Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Reserve
Wine Tasting NotesAbundant ripe fruit on the nose and a creaminess on the palate are brought to life with subtle acidity. Softer and less challenging than other varieties, the wine is still totally dry.
Deep, golden tropical fruit is the theme here. Full-bodied and sublimely flavorful, this wine is incredibly rich, yet fully dry, and it shows great balancing acidity.
