Trimbach Alsace Riesling 'Clos Ste Hune' 2011
Regarded as the greatest dry Riesling in all of Alsace, ‘Clos Ste. Hune’ was first produced in 1919, grown on old vines deeply rooted into calcareous-clay soils. This is a Riesling that benefits from aging, developing in complexity over time. Aged in oak for a short amount of time, followed by five years in bottle; creamy, complex, and insanely delicious. A treasure.
A versatile contender for ‘Greatest White Wine Grape in the World’ honors this German icon is not only insistently aromatic and mineral-rich but thrillingly acidic even at “sweet” ripeness levels.More wines with this grape
