Perhaps the best bottle of CSR I have ever had. Outstanding. The roughness you get in a young Gewurz is gone. There is the normal flavor profile of lychee and spice. There seems to be a bit of tart apple on the palate as well. The nose is lychee. The color is a bit darker than a young Gewurz. No sugar and no real apparent sweetness. I bought this when Jean Trimbach was in NY about 5-7 years ago. Holding to age a bit was definitely worth the wait. Glad I have more.
Straw to light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of apricot, ginger, flowers and wet stones. Flavors of apricot, peach and red skinned apples. Medium acidity, medium to full bodied. Drink or hold.

(Trimbach Gewurztraminer Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre) The fruit here had 14º potential alcohol at harvest, and there is just 8 g/l residual sugar. It has a lovely nose, with plenty of ripe Gewurztraminer character, aromatic but not overly perfumed, with notes of lychees and rose petals. This is very appealing, structured, with good acidity for this variety. Showing good balance and style, and it has some grip on the finish, this is an impressive wine.
