2004 Trimbach Gewurztraminer Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre - France, Alsace (12/17/2022)
Moderate honey gold color, typical of this wine with some years on it; getting the characteristic gewurz nose, bit on the lighter side, then really lovely on the palate, with flavorful, lightly gewurz spiced fruit, touch of savory minerality. A slightly tamer version of this wine, not quite the depth and explosiveness of the 2001 or 2005, a touch less acidity, it still nicely balanced, and still quite youthful. Based on where this wine is now, it could easily age another decade and more, and still be in its prime. (92 points)

Love this wine. It’s the archetype of Gewurztraminer for me.

Had a 2001 of this last week. Really liked it.

2001 was my introduction to this wine. I think I have one or two left, but I guard those carefully.
