Maker: Trimbach¸Ribeauville, Alsace, France (Diageo)
Grape: Pinot Gris/Grigio
Appearance: Medium Gold with thick, persistent legs.
Nose: Pear, apple, tangerine, maybe a little wood.
On the palate: Full bodied. Like an annoying country music group: Big and rich. Pear, apple, and lavender. As it warms, citron, orange and the tangerine again.
Finish: Light, sweet, and citric. Lingers on the tongue and in the nose for what seems like an hour.
Parting Words: What can I say, this is an excellent wine. Pinot Gris is one of the specialties of Alsace and Trimbach knows how to put it together. Even at six years of age, this wine is vibrant, rich, and deep. I wish I had more to say about this fantastic wine, but it has rendered me speechless. Highly recommended.

I looked for this wine at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s but came up emtpy.
I did however score a bottle of Alsace Clos Rebberg Pinot Gris from a customer of mine.
Maybe we can compare on Sunday.
