Critic Notes

Perfumed, something a bit rubbery and reductive lurking on the nose. Hard acid, but not aggressive, and the length is very good. Austere and standoffish, so would be better left alone for a few years to develop and soften. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Score: 16.5-/20Jancis Robinson

What Trimbachs refer to as their “classic” 2009 Riesling – though if they want to insist that one refer to their intro-level wines by that name, why not label them as such? – comes, as usual, from purchased fruit. There is a combination of sage, white pepper, and chalk dust aromatic pungency and textural bite that certainly claims one’s attention, all embedded in a bright matrix of fresh lime and finishing with lift and refreshment. If a bit of ripeness had to be sacrificed for the sake of refreshment and levity, you won’t get any complaint from me given the context of the vintage, not to mention that this wine is already harboring 13% alcohol. It ought to serve well at table over the next 4-6 years, not that anyone is likely to hold onto bottles for that long. David Schildknecht, eRobertParker.com

Rangen de Thann Grand Cru
Following our masterclass with Olivier Humbrecht MW and tasting through his extraordinary collection, we haven't been able to forget the wines from the Grand Cru vineyard of Rangen de Thann. These are wines that are overwhelmingly dominated by their terroir, with an abundance of mineral tones over and above fruit-forward flavours.
