From the very steep, warm and sunny Mandelberg Grand Cru in Mittelwihr, where the 30- to 60+-year-old vines are cultivated on limestone soils (the Trimbachs have owned their plot since 1996), the 2015 Riesling Cuvée M opens with very intense, ripe and concentrated fruit with some lemon flavors. Full-bodied, rich and voluptuous, this is a dense, rich, very complex and firmly structured yet elegant Riesling with good tannins and a long and powerful, lingering salty finish. It is an impressive Mandelberg and indicates great aging potential.

Aromas of dried peach and ripe apple follow through to a medium body with a beautiful center palate of spice, mineral and stone undertones. Plenty of fruit. Remains subtle and balanced.

March 2017

Vivid straw-green. Pear and dried fruit on the rich, ripe nose and palate. Round and suave, but also fresh and juicy, offering a strong saline note and insidious sweetness on the long, precise finish. Extremely tannic and very much in the ample style of the 2015 vintage and of the Mandelberg, a very calcaire site that is known for its warmer microclimate (in fact, almond trees manage to grow there). Really lovely wine - in fact, one of the prettiest young Cuvée Ms I remember having. Trimbach tells me that in 2016, should they like the wine and decide to bottle it (it depends on the vintage, clearly), they will name the wine Mandelberg outright (so no more Cuvée M).
