About the Wine
This is sourced entirely from Grand Cru fruit and sees the utmost attention in the winery. Great fruit in the hands of great winemakers is a recipe for success but the proof is, ultimately, in the wine. And this nails it.
It has all the power you'd expect from Grand Cru Alsace, and all the grace and restraint you'd expect from an iconic producer like Trimbach. More than any other of their wines, this really shows its soil, with limestone and salty seashells at the very core. Surrounding that is a mosaic of peach, lemon, jasmine and musk. With its racy acidity and firm body, you can be assured that this will last in the cellar for ages. Or drink it tomorrow. You'll enjoy it either way.
The origins of Trimbach go back as far as 1626, and it is still in family hands, 12 generations down the line. They are quite simply the icon winery of Alsace.
Based around their winery in Ribeauville they have around 57 hectares of vineyards including several famous Grand Cru sites, with Riesling being the obvious calling card among the other Alsatian aromatic whites.
Their masterpieces are the famous Rieslings, Clos Saint Hune and Cuvee Frederic Emile, which are among France's greatest white wines, though they are rarely seen.
