2017 Trimbach Grand Cru Geisberg Riesling

2017 Trimbach Grand Cru Geisberg Riesling

Trimbach now farm 3.5 ha of this tiny Grand cru site which rises up steeply above the village of Ribeauville on the northern side of the village. Trimbach established themselves in Ribeauville in the 1890s after moving from Hunawihr which was located off the tourist road and which saw less tourist visitors. Geisberg is the third smallest of the Alsace Grand cru sites and is composed of many terraces over limestone and sandstone subsoil. In 2008 Trimbach were granted the lease of the holding owned by the Convent of Ribeauvillé, on the condition that both the village and the Grand Cru were recognised when selling the wine. The first release of this wine was from the 2009 vintage. Riesling from this well exposed south-facing site produces powerful wines with typically great ageing capacity.

Bright golden-tinged straw. Aromas and flavors of orange oil, apple and anise. Enters round and sweet, then turns very austere and precise, revealing a licorice note that lingers on the tactile, savory finish. Deep and refined, this will improve markedly with a couple of years in the cellar. Drink 2023-2033.
