Critic Notes

Caramelized mirabelle, quince preserves, and litchi on the nose and palate of Trimbach’s 2008 Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive are backed by considerable sweetness, which in turn is partially restrained by a strongly alkaline and chalky sense of underlying minerality. Soothingly persistent, this ought to be worth following – and to gain some complexity and better balance – over the next 15-20 years. May 2011, www.robertparker.com

These are wines that are overwhelmingly dominated by their terroir, with an abundance of mineral tones over and above fruit-forward flavours.
