The '85 and '86 Trimbachs were the centerpiece of a fantastic meal and made for a fascinating comparison. Both bottles came directly from the domain's library release in 2004, so the provenance was as good as it gets. That said, as below, the younger vintage was clearly more advanced than a bottle of it that we had about 5 months ago. It is hardly surprising that a white wine of this age would show some variation even with the most perfect storage.
