Riesling Clos Sainte Hune 2002 - Trimbach: Riesling Clos Sainte Hune 2002 - Weißwein von TrimbachDieser Riesling aus der einzelnen Lage Clos Ste. Hune präsentiert sich erstklassig mit einem sorteneigenen, ausgewogenem Geschmack. Dieser besondere, mit traditionellem Anbaustil produzierte Wein wird leider nur limitiert verkauft. Sehr zu empfehlen zu elsässischen Spezialitäten, kräftigen Fischgerichten, gegrillt oder mit Kräutersaucen, zu hellem Fleisch und Geflügel, ebenso mit Kräutern zubereitet, sowie gereifte Käsesorten, besonders Ziegenkäse.Weingut: TrimbachLand: FrankreichRegion: ElsassRebsorte: RieslingInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Fassreife: 5 Jahre in Flaschen gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12°C Weißwein > Frankreich > Elsass


Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2002 Riesling Clos Ste-Hune – at under 8,000 bottles the smallest lot ever (even 2003 approached 9,000) – displays chicken stock, quarry dust, musk, wood smoke, and lime on the nose, then deposits minerality as deep, saline, and mysterious as the ocean. It is still very firm in finish for all of its length and one will have to have patience here as well. Plan on enjoying this anytime during the second decade of this new century, but plan on cuisine that will suit its extreme minerality...93" WA 02/08 "Pale color. Pungent aromas of powdered stone, pineapple and petrol. Wonderfully dense and deep, with a pure minerality verging on metallic. Much more austere than the Frederic Emile, which seems fruity and easygoing by comparison. A distinctly chalky riesling that's already starting to close down in the bottle. Jean Trimbach describes this vintage as combining the viscosity of the '95 with the dryness and minerality of the '85. The crop level here was just 48 hectoliters per hectare...93" IWC 11/03
