2000 Trimbach Riesling Frederic Emile Vendanges Tardive
"Enticing pale color for a wine at this level of ripeness. Highly aromatic nose of pineapple, grapefruit and liquid stone. Juicy, penetrating and pure, with intense, spicy fruit flavors of peach and pineapple. A very pure fruit bomb of a riesling, with outstanding clarity and thrust. Dense, tactile and stony, with bright acids extending the wine's strong finish. Wonderfully lively and light on its feet. Carrying a moderate 20 grams per liter of residual sugar."
"The 2000 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile Vendanges Tardives has mouth-watering liquid mineral aromas. Light to medium-bodied, full, and precise, this is a gorgeous, highly-nuanced wine with herbal tea, mineral, and quince flavors that last throughout its admirably long finish. Projected maturity: 2004-2015." -92 Points, Pierre Rovani, The Wine Advocate
