‘Medium-dark golden-tinged straw. Exuberant nose of pineapple, almond cake and lime. Enters broad and delicately spicy, then juicy and vibrant. Citrusy acidity provides this fleshy, tactile wine with clarity and cut. Along with the 2016, this is the best Mandelberg ever. 2022-2030’ – Ian D’Agata, Vinous, 93+/100

‘Bright straw. Spicy dried fruit and ripe yellow apple aromas and flavors. Insidiously creamy in the middle, then turns lemony on the long, savory finish. Very elegant Riesling Mandelberg (a relatively warm site known for giving slightly broader, rounder wines that are not necessarily the last word in refinement), but very much in the style of the 2016 vintage; the combination of warm microclimate (the Mandelberg’s) and the late-ripening variety (Riesling) often gives wine lovers something special in many vintages. The first vintage of this Trimbach wine in which the Mandelberg name appears on the label (previously this was known as Cuvée M). Trimbach’s vines are located on the steepest part of the grand cru,and Pierre Trimbach told me that the marly-calcareous soils contribute a strong lemony acidity. Lovely wine, one of the best Mandelberg wines I have ever had from Trimbach - maybe the best.’ – Ian D’Agata, Vinous, 92+/100

Producer information One of the most exciting wine estates in the Alsace region is Domaine Trimbach. Founded in 1626, thirteen generations of the Trimbach family have promoted Alsace and its history through the centuries. Located in the heart of Ribeauvillé near Colmar, the vineyard is composed of a rich, mosaic soils including limestone, sandstone, marl and clay to name a few. These natural assets provide the perfect conditions for an array of aromatic grape varieties. Trimbach wines acquired true international acclaim in 1898 when Frédéric Emile Trimbach received the highest distinction at the International Wine Fair in Brussels. Today, the estate exports more than 85% of its wines and they are much sought-after by connoisseurs around the world.
