Top 10 Alsace ‘new generation’ dry wines
Trimbach, Clos-Ste-Hune Riesling 2007
1.7 grams/litre of residual sugar (RS) and 7.2g/l acidity. Precise fruit and complex expression of limestone freshness. Old vines (45–50 years old) facing south and southeast bring concentration to this wine, which finishes on a subtle note of white pepper.
