James Suckling 94
“This is dense with a fantastic tightness and length to the wine. Full body. This is only from Ribeauville vineyards. All limestone. 40 to 50-year- old vines and all from Trimbach.”~J.S.
Wine Spectator 91
“A firm, bone-dry version, with a subtle mix of crunchy white peach, acacia blossom, Meyer lemon zest and petrol. This is tightly knit now, but the balance and focus suggest it should open with short-term cellaring.”~A.N.
Vinous Media 90
“Aromas of apple, tangerine and minerals, plus nuances of lemon verbena and gin. Juicy and penetrating, with strong acidity framing the intense lemon, mineral and minty herb flavors. Finishes crisp and persistent.”~I.D.
Wine and Spirits Magazine 90
“A selection from vineyards around the village of Ribeauvillé, this is a tight, flinty riesling that explodes into flavors of cranberry and burnt orange zest. It’s ornate, even as it feels open, airy and cool. Decant it for roast pork.”~T.T.
TrimbachView all from Trimbach
Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together. Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the Family Business.
The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential.
Alsace is situated in the northeast of France. It is bordered on the west by the Vosges Mountains and on the east by the Rhine, which separates it from Germany. Its shared history between France and Germany has created a unique approach to the styles of the wines and cuisine. Alsace is a picture perfect region with rolling green hills dotted by medieval villages. The Route du Vin is one of, if not the most beautiful wine trails in the world.
Maison Trimbach's vineyards are situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are mostly limestone. Their vineyards also benefit from Alsace's unique microclimate, where the Vosges Mountains protect them from the rain. Plantings are on some of the prime sites of Alsace, including top Grand Cru vineyards like Osterberg and Geisberg. Since many of the Trimbach's prestigious wines are from multiple Grands Crus vineyard sites, they are labeled by proprietary name. In fact, these wines, such as Clos Sainte Hune and Cuvée Frédéric Emile, pre-date the AOC Grand Cru designation (est. in 1983) by decades!
These renowned wines are served in all 26 Michelin 3 Star restaurants in France, and can accompany any of the world's cuisines.
