The Trimbach 2003 Pinot Gris Réserve was vinified to complete dryness, with very little residual sugar. The wine was fermented in stainless steel vats with no oak aging. Bottling was done in the spring of 2004 to preserve freshness and aging capability.
This classical example of Pinot Gris is probably one of their best. Rich and fragrant, the wine is very ripe and harmonious in style, with juicy yellow peach and ripe pear on the nose. It is full-bodied with ripe, smoky, tropical fruit flavors and a long, slightly nutty finish. Served well chilled, this wine is excellent with sushi, salmon, scallops, veal, chicken, and pâtés. Delicious with spicy dishes, it also makes an excellent aperitif.
I'm not a wine person for the most part, but this wine is delicious. I had never had a pinot gris before, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I definitely know I like it.
