1989 Riesling Clos St Hune Vendage Tardive Trimbach

Average critic rating : 94.5 points



In fact the label says Vendanges Tardives (sic). Deep rosy bronze. Intensely rich nose. Very full. Smells of extremely ripe white berries. This bottle of this famous, one-off wine was definitely ready to drink. Slightly hot and bitter on the finish. Dry - possibly too dry for its own good? Had a little more sugar been left unfermented it would not be quite so heady. This reminds me to try another bottle from my own cellar. I see it was tasting well a couple of years ago. I found the locally smoked salmon a great match with this whereas it seemed to overwhelm the German wine. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

The Trimbach estate was established in 1626 and is now being run by the 12th generation of the family, Pierre and Jean. Riesling Cuvée Frederic Emile is the signature wine of the family. It is a dry Riesling with lots of mineral character and a great ageing potential. The jewel in Trimbach's crown is the Clos Ste Hune vineyard, which is located just outside Hunawihr. Riesling Clos Ste Hune is widely recognised as one of the finest expressions of Alsace Riesling.
