This is the first vintage that Trimbach made a wine from this vineyard.  Light golden in color.  Great nose.  There is a bit of orange peel along with minerals and a salinity on the nose.  It is big right from the start.  The palate takes a bit of air to get going.  A relatively viscous texture.  The wine is dry.  Tight peaches eventually show more expressive peach along with minerals (crushed limestone).  There is some warmth on the wine.  Nevertheless, it worked great with food especially a Goat Cheese Tart (superb).  Still young, it is drinking well now, but should continue to improve for at least five years and has a couple of decades minimum left.
