Wine Advocate-Parker :
Pineapple, honey, and spiced crabapple aromas rise from the Trimbach 2002 Riesling Vendange Tardive. Improbably bracing and refreshing for the genre, this saturates the palate with pineapple, honey, and crabapple, leading to a lip-smacking finish in which more than thirty grams of residual sugar barely make the wine taste sweet. Seldom does a vendange tardive taste this dry or refreshing. There might well be nuances to come here, but at the very least this wine's energy and primary fruit intensity won't fade for more than a decade. The botrytis that was here did its noble work and departed without leaving mundane traces.
