F. E. Trimbach, Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile 375th Anniversaire 2001

Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, New York NY.

Yellow-gold.  From old-vine, late-harvest grand cru Osterberg and the wine left us silent and grateful.  More shriveled flavors than botrytis ones.  The sweetest, honeyed fragrance unfurls on the palate dry.  A parade of spice, energized yellow fruits and fossil-bearing limestone, stacked in layers, carbonizing.  Now – 2025+.
