#3 ENTHUSIAST 100 2022 Notes of petrol and pear are focused and intense on the nose. The palate is bright and lemony with a silky smoothness. A long puckery finish leaves a tingly sensation as well as delicious notes of dill fennel frond and eucalyptus. This wine is a bit of a slow burner and could easily keep aging but there's plenty here to enjoy and discover now. LAYLA SCHLACK

Vinous: 94 Points

Vivid straw-green. Rich aromas of soft citrus fruits, honey and minerals. Dense, juicy and tactile on the palate, featuring expressive flavors of apricot, beeswax and spices. This fresh, deep, suave Riesling showcases a lovely fruit intensity and boasts an unctuously sweet personality (only 6 g/L residual sugar but actually sweeter-tasting than that number indicates). Made with the best grapes from Trimbach’s many vineyards (previously, they have made a 350th anniversary wine in 1976, a 375th anniversary wine in 2001 and now this one) including such famous grands crus as the Osterberg and the Schoenenbourg.
