Glorious Gewurz!


Trimbach Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre 2008, $46, bone dry, RS of just 1.8, half that of most California Chardonnays, but so packed with luscious tropical fruit it tasted like more. Absolutely à point now – how many dry white wines can last 8 years? – it was just beginning to acquire hints of funkiness that made it not quite right for the smoked salmon – pork would have been better – but still a glorious expression of Alsatian magic.
