2017 Trimbach Clos Ste Hune Riesling
Clos Sainte Hune is a 1,67 hectares exceptional stony argilo-calcaire, or Muschelkalk, limestone terroir, exclusively planted in Riesling, located in the heart of Grand Cru Rosacker, in Hunawihr.
2017 had a very cold and dry winter, severe frosts in mid-April. Flowering nevertheless precocious, summer begins with mild temperature then more scorching. Rare precipitation, these rather hot climatic conditions contributed to the precocity of this vintage, low in quantity but exceptional in quality.
A typical delicate spicy fragrance with white pepper leads to a remarkable concentration of sun kissed fruits enhanced with a touch of ripe acidity. Tight texture and complexity reveal a rich fat body with mineral depth finishing with a delicate intense saline aftertaste. Fabulous balance for such a young wine, richness and freshness dance together.
