Full yellow. Begins very ripe with sweet pineapple and citrus. With air, more floral notes. Full bodied. Remarkably, a moderate level of sweetness gives way to an off dry array of apricots, cyanic bite, and a fair amount of soil with reasonable acidity. Not entirely convincing either in terms of balance or flavor authority. In the end, I'd say somewhat disappointing for a vintage with a fine reputation.
Trimbach Tasting (1855): Sweet slightly floral nose. Rich sweetness continues onto the palate, somewhat slightly more than a moscato, and much less than a Sauternes. Seemed to be an underlying dryness which could reveal itself with more age. Nice easy drinking now nonetheless.
