F.E. Trimbach, Frankreich
A Trimbach 2011 Gewurztraminer Reserve delivers pepper, black tea, caraway and clove pungency on the nose and palate along with a firmness of feel and chalky, stony undertone that I would not normally anticipate from this grape much less in this vintage. These characteristics come together for a finish displaying striking cut and vigor, albeit with a tendency toward bitter concentration that some tasters might find slightly excessive. This should be fascinating to follow at table through at least 2022.
