2014 Trimbach Geisberg Grand Cru Riesling
Aromas of limestone and hints of earth. Wet morning forest floor. This is from the vineyards of the convent of Ribeauville. This has been made separately since 2009. All organically farmed. Only 8.5 hectares total with Trimbach as four. The Montrachet of Alsace?
The 2014 Grand Cru Geisberg Riesling opens with a clear, ripe and intense, well-concentrated and complex bouquet with crushed stone, lemon peel and herbal aromas. Full-bodied, juicy, intense and piquant, with good concentration and complexity, this is a full-bodied, dense and persistent Riesling with firm, yet still somewhat austere tannins and good acidity. I suppose this will be a great Geisberg in 10 or more years, but not much earlier. A very promising Riesling!
