This is really phenomenal with such compact fruit and mineral, lemon and spice character. It’s full-bodied yet so refined and polished. It goes on for days. Glorious! Will be released by 2024. Drink on release or hold.

Penetrating nuances of lime and guava join the lemon verbena, jasmine, mineral and white stone fruit aromas on the knockout, captivating nose. Then dense, complex and multilayered, offering profound flavors of fresh citrus fruit, sweet spices and talcum powder. Closes extremely long, clean and precise; this is a young white wine of utterly mesmerizing beauty. I find this to be one of the best young CSHs I have ever tasted; it is stylistically different but almost on the same quality level as the marvelous 2010 CSH. One sniff (never mind taste) and I was left almost speechless - and I’m not usually one who keeps his mouth shut when I recognize a truly great wine. -- Ian D'Agata

Hune, within the Rosacker grand cru, have been in the Trimbach family for more than 200 years. The parcel faces south-southeast on limestone subsoils and it is widely regarded as one of the great vineyards of the world, not only for the finesse and power of its wines, but also for their longevity. The riesling vines, averaging 50 years of age, produced a 2016 that runs on clean energy, starting from the first taste that immediately brings a tingle on the tongue—nothing to do with volatility, but rather a bulwark of freshness that hides any sense of weight in the wine. You can almost feel the fruit coming into ripeness as each taste develops in your mouth, from underripe apricot to fuller yellow plum and a tense, herbal savor. This is a cellar-worthy wine that manages to be sexy as well.

It's finely detailed and lightly chalky in texture, with the juicy fruit and mineral notes returning to echo on the finish. This is a pleasure right now but will continue to shine over time. Drink now through 2036. 650 cases made, 75 cases imported. — AN
