Trimbach Vendange Tardive Pinot Gris Ribeauville 2000
Since 1626, Maison Trimbach has been producing traditional Alsace wines recognised all over the world. he Trimbachs have always had a purist vision. For 12 generations, the Family has been producing dry wines, very strictly structured, long-living and fruity, elegant and balanced: it's the Trimbach Style! The Trimbachs let their wines age in the bottles in the cellar during several years before they release them on the market, especially for the Great Wines, such as Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile. Maison Trimbach's vineyards are all situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are dominant in limestone. They benefit from the alsatian microclimate, thanks to the Vosges Mountains protection, which preserves the plain from the rain. Restricted to four noble grape varieties, Muscat, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer, these wines are subjected to some of the French most stringent wine laws. Vendanges tardives grapes are picked last of all, and only from the choicest plots in the greatest years, the grapes are always over-ripe and often affected by noble rot, or Botrytis cinerea. The botrytized, apricot and mango-scented wine has bags of elegance. This 'Pinot Gris Vendage Tardive' is medium bodied, beautifully structured and very well-balanced. White peaches are explicitly evident adding complexity to this powerful, delicate and silky smooth wine. This wine is delightful alone or as an aperitif, but it also has its place with foie gras, rich cuisine or desserts.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
