    May 18, 2019 - Q2 - 2019 Tasting - Alsatian White Varieties from around the World (New York, NY): 14/17 wines tasted double blind. Lots of petroleum notes on the nose. Palate though is crisp and mineral, tart fruit, lingering finish. Very nice. Top 6 for me. Group voted 3 pennies.

    May 18, 2019 - Q2 2019 Tasting - Alsatian White Varietals (The Apt): Wine #14: Touch of petrol, bit of sweet and sour. It might have been impacted coming on the heels of the ZH vendage tardive except most kept wine 13 for the end. This is just a little bit of a lot of things. Would have expected it to jump out a bit more, but it came across as a touch muted. It was a touch sweet, a touch sour, a bit of petrol. Easy to drink. (3 pennies)

    March 5, 2019 - Waited 8 years to have this last bottle, since the last one was very young. Amazingly, this has aged only a little since then. A slightly darker yellow but short of gold. A little more petrol. But still bright and lively at 23 yers of age. Remarkable.

    December 21, 2017 - I’ve now opened two of these bottles in past two weeks. One was corked - it’s cork was crumbling and the wine had that horrible wet cardboard smell and taste.

    The second bottles cork was also crumbling... with a lot of work I was able to extract it. After some air the wine opened up and drank well enough but it was nothing extraordinary by any stretch. Almost all petrol and acid.

    I’m hoping these bottles were outliers since I have more in my cellar - all library release and stored well.

    August 20, 2016 - Nose of oranges, a hint of petrol, freshly cutted grass... Yellow and green apple, very concentrated.

    (Trimbach Cuvée Frédéric Émile Riesling) A pale golden hue. A great nose, taking just a few minutes to open up, revealing rich petrolly aromas at first, then a blast of lime, then a more creamy sense of fruit, tropical, bright and sweet in character. This sense continues on the palate right at the start, showing a great texture, then a pure flesh through the middle, supple and rich but also well defined. Towards the end, it gets a little more savoury, showing a character full of impact and presence here. It is long, grippy, slightly bitter, with notes of orange zest. Most impressive of all, it has an amazingly pure and vivacious minerality on the palate, riding all over the acidity, both elements lifting and defining the wine, giving it a brilliant sappy-sour character, with lovely citrus fruits in the finish. This is wonderful, certainly my favourite taste of CFE for some time, and this is a wine still on the way up.
