Tasting Notes

Vinous – 92+

Golden straw-yellow. Delicate but very deep and closed nose offers scents of green apple, ginger, white peach, lemon and smoke. Quite brooding today but already conveys sneaky concentration to its rich, gingery stone fruit and fusel flavors. Finishes dense and rich, but fresh, harmonius acidity and a saline edge keep the wine light and lively on the palate. This vintage of Clos Ste. Hune is marked by an especially strong diesel fuel note, which Pierre Trimbach believes is only minimally due to the warmer vintage and more so to the terroir. Moreover, Trimbach believes that with the increased use of gentler presses in the region, this early-onset fusel smell in Riesling wines will become less and less common. I am not a huge fan of petrolly young Rieslings, so I find this wine tough to judge today. But I do think this will be one of those vintages in which the quality difference between the Frederic Emile and the CSH will turn out to be minimal. [Ian D’Agata, 04/01/2015]
