Trimbach Pinot Blanc 2017
Luminous straw. Delicate spicy nuances and sweet apple and pear aromas on the inviting nose. Then flavors similar to the aromas, and above-average acidity for a wine made with so much Auxerrois (this is a blend of 80% Auxerrois and 20% Pinot Blanc). Unlike Trimbach's 2017 Sylvaner, this is made for the most part with bought grapes (though Pierre Trimbach told me he would like to limit the bought grapes to 50% of the total). No matter - it's an outstanding Auxerrois wine.
Faint notes of green and yellow pear on the nose mix with a quiet tang of lemon. The palate is dry, slender and gentle, with juicy fruit and great purity.
A zesty white, with a stony underpinning, this is light-bodied and fresh, offering notes of ripe green apple, grated ginger and Meyer lemon zest. Offers a snappy, floral finish. Drink now through 2022. 20,000 cases made, 9,000 cases imported.
