Trimbach Hommage à Jeanne Pinot Gris 750ML
The tasting notes from Tanzer and Wine Advocate are accurate as far as they go, but at 13 years of age, this has gained even more layered complexity and depth than they suggest. Now, it’s outrageously complex on the nose with notes of dried tropical fruit, mushroom, rose petal, and caramelized apple. In the mouth it’s rich without heaviness, with complex flavors that are hard to describe – perhaps honeyed pear, dried papaya, white mushroom, toasted almond, and beeswax? The light sweetness is balanced by bright acidity and a broad swath of chalky, salty, minerality, and the finish goes on and on.
