Maison Trimbach : Pinot Gris Vendanges tardives 2008

Alsace - White - 13° Maison Trimbach Maison Trimbach 2008 F167/08
  • Parker : 93
The Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives 2008 of the House Trimbach is a liqueur-like wine which offers a great ageing potential of 15 years, nay more. It has a straw-coloured robe and on the nose, it unveils a very quaffering palette of aromas: riped fruits as the quince, the peach and mango, as well as a light honeyed accent. On the mouth, the wines marries perfectly generosity and elegance thanks to a well balanced acidity. The finish is long and persistant. The Trimbach Vendanges Tardives 2008 Pinot Gris leaves us in a dream.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Pinot Gris Vendange Tardive is, at 60 grams residual sugar, unabashedly and for a Trimbach V.T. surprisingly sweet. But then, it had already reached 13.7% alcohol. A remarkable nose - vegetarians beware! - suggests smoked pork, sauteed veal sweetbreads, and truffle-studded foie gras, and the palate is just as sinfully rich as the nose implies, encompassing as well a honeyed intensity of quince and mirabelle preserves; white Burgundy-like toasted brioche; and hints of brown spices. This is a meal unto itself, and for all of its amplitude reveals a sense of buoyancy. But it will take many years for the sense of sweetness to significantly back-off. One could certainly plan on following this for a quarter century.
