(2024) Very attractive nose with something green and herbaceous - nettle maybe? - orange rind and a hint of juicy ogen melon. The palate has a fat limey fruit core, really very good acidity, but the hint of ripeness and nectarine sweetness fills out the mid-palate. The juicy, lemony and delicately saline finish is beautifully done. Very good value this one.
(2023) A dry Riesling from vineyards around Ammerschwihr, this has a discreet nose of lemon and salts, a little herbal note. The palate has lots of juicy, fresh apple, again that little saline note to the lemony acid of the finish that is appealing.
(2023) From a mixed terroir of clay marls, limestone and sandstone, quite fragrant and apple-scented, though aromas are modest. Nicely juicy and sparky on the palate with some spritz and zestiness and a touch of saline in the finish
(2022) A blend of 65% Riesling with Gewurztraminer (including a tiny bit of late-harvest) and Muscat, this has 9g/l of residual sugar. This is made by Claude Gisselbrecht, and has a nice lift with a touch of waxiness and ripe pear and apple, the Gewurz florality comes through too. The palate has great quality and freshness, though there is a slippery limpid texture, but the sweetness against the bite of the acid is beaufifully balanced, that exotic note from the Gewurz comes through.
(2021) A very attractive rendition of Muscat this, not lacking in the distinctively floral and nettle freshness of the varietal aromas, but with plenty of crunchy, vivid, bone-dry apple fruit and a great searing core of citrus acidity that drives the finish with a bit of real personality. Quite full bodied, it's a long and powerful wine, finishing punchy and pithy.
(2017) Very nice spices and cool apple and pear fruit at first, then a little more peachiness comes through. Lovely mouth-filling and sweet fruit, but dry and quite steely on the finish. Lovely dry extract grip.
(2017) A typically steely rendition of Riesling from Hugel, and a fabulously accurate one. There is some spice, some beeswax lift, but the thrust is resolutely of precise apple fruit. It's an effortlessly concentrated wine, the dry extract is there to give it some gravitas, but it's all about those apple and tangy sherbet lemon flavours and streaking lemon and grapefruit acidity to make the mouth water. This has the concentration and balance to cellar rather well.
(2017) From a vineyard within the city of Colmar, a fine, salt and lemon-scented wine, a tiny suggestion - but no more than that - of waxiness, but pretty and pristine stuff. In the mouth it is dry and taut, an unflashy style, all cool apple cores and lemon, with a refined, quite long finish.
(2016) A glorious Riesling this from Trimbach, with a delightful waxy, mineral complexity on the nose, hints of paraffin wax and flowers, ripe orchard fruit beneath. On the palate it is sharp as tack but has its own sense of fat concentration and juiciness, as well as pin-sharp citrus and dry apple acidity. A beautiful example of an Alsace Riesling in a style that's bone-dry, but never austere.
(2015) A delightful if understated Riesling, this has stone-fruit aromas, lemon and gentle wax, peach down and stony minerals. On the palate it has a hint of being off-dry, with a clean, fruity palate, though whilst balanced, it perhaps lacks the last ounce of precision and pinging acidity of the very best examples.
