"Rich and off-dry, with a firm underlying structure, this white features peach, apricot and quince flavors. Well-balanced and ready to enjoy, but will hold for a few years. Good length. Try with cheese. Drink now through 2010." (WS)

"The 2000 Pinot Gris Hommage a Jeanne was produced from a selection of Trimbach's best Pinot Gris parcels (all harvested at over 15% natural potential alcohol). It sports 25 grams per liter of dry extract and 20 grams per liter of residual sugar. While at most firms this wine would merit a Vendanges Tardives bottling, the Trimbachs chose to pay homage to Jeanne Trimbach, the mother of Bernard and Hubert, who turned 100 in May 2000 and continues to drink Alsace's lovely nectars to this day. This gorgeous wine has mineral and smoke-imbued white peach aromas. On the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, dense, and rich. Layer after layer of apricot, poached pear, white peach, and spices can be found in its highly expressive, velvety-textured personality. It is an intensely concentrated, wonderfully balanced, fresh, and structured wine. Drink it between 2005 and 2018." (WA)

"Superripe but bright aromas of peach and honey. Very rich and honeyed; sweeter and less alcoholic than the Reserve Personnelle, and more easygoing at this early stage. Some of this fruit was picked very late, at VT weight. This very rich, long tokay makes the Reserve Personnelle seem almost riesling-like by comparison. Still, there only a moderate 19 grams/liter of residual sugar here." (IWC)

"Named in memory of Jeanne Trimbach, this cuvée celebrates the centenary of her birth. It is packed with toast aromas, just a touch of honey and is layered with green fruits, with fresh acidity on the finish. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates. — R.V. (2/1/2006)" (WE)
