 Tasted by Thefatbastard on 7/29/2015: Vin évolué très fin. Nez sur des notes indescriptible de fruits exotiques. Longeur et rondeur incroyable, un peu de rancio. Grand vins. A boire sans attendre car le bouchon avait atteint sa limite! Rappel un sauterne sans le sucré. Étonnant. (108 views)
 Tasted by bbell73271 on 7/27/2015: Lacking acidity and structure to frame the sweetness...I tried it with dessert but maybe something on the spicier side would work better here. Certainly not as memorable as other Trimbach offerings. (121 views)
 Tasted by dann-o on 6/21/2015 & rated 90 points: The wine has low acidity. It smells like honeydew and pear. The body is medium. The wine finishes medium. It tastes like honey and apricot. The wine has round texture. (403 views)
 Tasted by NickBurwood on 11/1/2014 & rated 93 points: Dashed back from Rochester & Strood by-election fighting the UKIP loony fringe, grabbed a Chinese and another bottle of Hommage from my cellar - still showing magnificently.
Ripe, exotic fruit - pineapple, melon, physalis; viscous, tongue coating with minerality and balancing acidity. Off-dry. Excellent length.
Drink over the next couple of years while at peak. (1400 views)
 Tasted by griffin'sdad on 9/3/2014: another oxidized bottle. (1574 views)
 Tasted by Loren Sonkin on 9/1/2014 & rated 92 points: A Labor of Love (and wine and beer) (Our home): Very nice showing. This is a deep gold color which had me worried, but there is still plenty of life here. I assume it drank differently in its youth. It reminds me of what would be a totally dry sauternes. Oranges, a bit of honey with a slightly bitter orange peel on the finish. Fun wine, food friendly. (1878 views)
 Tasted by WStucker on 6/12/2014 & rated 93 points: Vendange Tardive style (light), wonerful fruit concentration, not over the top. Consume in the next 3 to 5 years. (1877 views)
 Tasted by griffin'sdad on 5/20/2014 flawed bottle: oxidized (1796 views)
 Tasted by NickBurwood on 4/13/2014 & rated 93 points: 60th Birthday at home with 15 guests and superb caterer (Kalm Kitchen) - wines from my cellar. Limited note taking.
4 bottles opened 90 minutes before consumption, served from bottle. Very popular with my guests and showing as per earlier notes and accompanying the smoked duck fowl starter perfectly.
Start drinking up, as I reckon approaching the end of its plateau. Still superb. (1203 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 3/13/2014 flawed bottle: flawed (1112 views)
 Tasted by David J Cooper on 2/16/2014 & rated 93 points: Clear medium gold. This wine was rich in the nose and in the mouth. Pineapple, mineral and apple. The finish is balanced but rich. (1093 views)
 Tasted by griffin'sdad on 1/7/2014: gave to our host who did not share with us (1098 views)
 Tasted by NickBurwood on 12/31/2013 & rated 93 points: New Year's Eve dinner.
As per earlier note. A perfect accompaniment with a superb home made (and shot) pheasant terrine starter. (971 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 11/5/2013 flawed bottle: Light golden. Started with nice orange fruit but finishes with a weird musty, bitter taste that is awful. Looking at the notes on this, I strongly suspect that a high percentage of bottles brought into the San Francisco Bay Area several years ago were flawed with cork defects of one sort or another. This one had a strange bluish discoloration of the business end of the cork. One can only hope that the importer did not knowingly distribute tainted wine. These bottles had labels that did not include the picture of Madame Trimbach as the original release did. (1270 views)
 Tasted by NickBurwood on 11/2/2013 & rated 93 points: Stunning.
Pulled cork fifteen minutes before pouring. Aroma of aromatic melon, peach. Initial immediate impression of quite a sweet wine - then in comes the capsicum and acid that gives a real dynamic edge to this full viscous nectar now clearly just off-dry. The minerality that the whole is encased in just adds to the enjoyment and complexity of this masterpiece.
Accompanied our Barbary duck to perfection. The intensity of this wine is further enhanced by serving a couple of degrees below cellar temperature. Three years to drink my remaining 23 bottles at this level. (985 views)
 Tasted by theronware on 9/17/2013 flawed bottle: My experience mirrors zscheiner's. Very muted nose. On the palate, grapefruit pith, some sweet fruit, and an element of soggy newspaper. The wine perked up a bit when served with sweet/sour vegetables but still quite disappointing. Cork was soaked through and spongy. (1239 views)
 Tasted by cephomer on 9/5/2013 & rated 91 points: A lovely golden color. Nose of honey, flowers and pears. Fairly sweet but not disturbingly so, very good acidity nicely in balance with fruit and wine's other elements, medium bodied with hints of minerality, nicely ripened pears, sweet apples & honey. A very nice wine (1128 views)
 Tasted by liberlibri on 8/25/2013 & rated 92 points: A real treat and unbelievable qpr at 25 bucks. Gorgeous honey, poached pear, baked apple, candied almond aspect, but really only semi-sweet. Not a straight desert wine. Went just wonderfully with some lightly spiced Indian fare. (1208 views)
 Tasted by europat55 on 8/18/2013 & rated 93 points: Such a treat, (1109 views)
 Tasted by millesime66 on 8/2/2013 & rated 96 points: Exceptionnel vin blanc d'une telle concentration et presque botrytisé à la manière d'un Sauternes, mais sans le sucre résiduel important. En fait il donne l'impression d'en avoir à peine. Pomme mûre, poire et même abricot en plus d'une touche de miel, ce vin équilibré est une merveille qui ne coûtait que 35$ au Courrier Vinicole. Il en vaut au moins le triple... (1159 views)
 Tasted by Rieslingfan on 7/28/2013 flawed bottle: Cooked or premoxed. Either way undrinkable. (1157 views)
 Tasted by zscheiner on 6/26/2013 flawed bottle: Went back and forth over two days as to whether this was corked, ultimately landed on yes, lightly. Golden color, spicy, gingery nose along with faint wet cardboard. Not very expressive aromatically. Some residual sugar, yellow apple and pear, more gingery spice. Drinkable, but surely not all it should be. (1174 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 6/12/2013 flawed bottle: Corked (1358 views)
 Tasted by redwhiteandrich on 5/26/2013 & rated 88 points: Pristine cork. Bruised apples and pears, touch of residual sugar, bit of lanlolin, balancing acidity, what could you ask for in a 13 year old pinot gris for $25? (1149 views)
 Tasted by griffin'sdad on 5/20/2013 & rated 98 points: Almost perfection! A beautiful sunshine robe. Pear and apple with an absolutely luxurious mouthfeel that is counterbalanced by just the right amount of acidity. Simply beautiful. (1147 views)

Pinot Gris

From Pinot Gris Wikipedia entry:
Wines made from the Pinot gris vary greatly and are dependent on the region and wine making style they are from. Alsatian Pinot gris are medium to full bodied wines with a rich, somewhat floral bouquet. They tend to be spicy in comparisons with other Pinot gris. While most Pinot gris are meant to be consumed early, Alsatian Pinot gris can age well. German Pinot gris are more full-bodied with a balance of acidity and slight sweetness. In Oregon the wines are medium bodied with a yellow to copper-pink color and aromas of pear, apple, and/or melon. In California, the Pinot gris are more light bodied with a crisp, refreshing taste with some pepper and arugula notes. The Pinot grigio style of Italy is a light-bodied, often lean wine that is light in color with sometimes spritzy flavors that can be crisp and acidic. Although this wine can be very sweet, it will begin to lose its acidity when it is nearly ripe.

Pinot gris is considered an "early to market wine" that can be bottled and out on the market within 4–12 weeks after fermentation.
