86 Trimbach, Riesling Clos Ste. Hune
Minerally and smoky with exhausting aromas of diesel and dry honey, Clos Ste. Hune's smell is the story of Alsace. The flavors are crisp, peachy, and endlessly tart, but second to the wine's dry, fascist presence, which I quickly come to obey. At the end, I taste rich butterscotch, crabapples, slivered almonds poached in olive oil, and brothy white meat.
