Expert Reviews

Lemon oil with fusil and smoky accents pungently scent the Trimbach 2008 Riesling Reserve, which shares with its lower-rung “classic” sibling a palpable sense of high extract and a piquant and slightly austere expression of things herbal and mineral as well as stimulating cut and brightness. There is an exhilarating refreshment and the promise of sufficient stamina to be worth following for at least ten or a dozen years.

“The oenologists were saying in 2009 ‘Oh we have to get approval so that we can add acidity,’ but it was absolutely unnecessary, for us,” notes Pierre Trimbach, who indeed delivered a surprisingly animated collection, albeit one diminished in size by instances of declassification. The Trimbachs compare their 2008s with 1998, adding that there is something of 2001 to them, too. As a group, they are going to further the reputation of wines from this family for rewarding patience. Rating 90 - Drink to 2023 David Schildknecht, eRobertParker.com (MAY/2011)
