    Pale color. Pungent aromas of powdered stone, pineapple and petrol. Wonderfully dense and deep, with a pure minerality verging on metallic. Much more austere than the Frederic Emile, which seems fruity and easygoing by comparison. A distinctly chalky riesling that's already starting to close down in the bottle. Jean Trimbach describes this vintage as combining the viscosity of the '95 with the dryness and minerality of the '85. The crop level here was just 48 hectoliters per hectare.

    Slightly fusty on the nose - I think this should be decanted. Lots of evolution and chew but no charm at the moment. All power and extract and introversion but it certainly has the composition to blossom eventually. Not to be rushed, I'd say. Powerful and muscular. Bit of a prize fighter in fact.

    After decanting, it had an amber robe; had a petrol-like nose; was very pure and crystalline on the palate with notes of exotic fruits; a long aftertaste
