Notes

The vineyards belonging to the Trimbach Family date back to 1626. For almost 400 years the Trimbach family has been promoting Alsace, its history and its exceptional terroirs and fine wines. Currently the family winery is headed by Hubert Trimbach, his nephews Jean and Pierre, and his daughter Anne. The Trimbach family pour a lot of enthusiasm into their winemaking as well as holding traditions of the area in high esteem. Their steely, dry and mineral wines offer true ageing potential and are renowned throughout the world.

'Trimbach doesn’t show the name of the vineyard on the bottle nor label their wines as Grand Crus. Their top wine however is a single cru Rosacker dominated by limestone clay. Clos Ste.-Hune is the quintessential Riesling. It is unquestionably the finest produced in France, and can rival any Riesling producing in the world.' – Robert Parker

Tasting notes:
'Bright and creamy, this harmonious white wraps vibrant acidity with layers of honeyed apricot, lemon parfait, creamed almond and fleur de sel. Medium-bodied and mouthwatering, with exotic spice, mineral and lemon zest accents playing on the finish. Drink now through 2023.' – Wine Spectator, 92/100

'The Pinot Gris Réserve Personnelle is only produced in exceptional years and is a selection of the best parcels in and below the Osterberg Grand Cru, so mainly grown on limestone terroir. It is an opulent, age-worthy and gastronomic wine of great maturity and provided with a succulent fruit. The 2013 Pinot Gris Réserve Personnelle starts very clear, subtle and elegant on the nose where delicate stony/mineral flavors are displayed. Full-bodied, very elegant and lovely piquant on the palate this millésime seems to be quite sweet in its intensity but is also piquant and provided with a racy and almost piquant acidity and structured by very fine tannins. Not as knaggy as the corresponding but with finesse and elegance. The 2013 will be in the market already in 2017 -- "at latest and earlier than we wish," says Pierre Trimbach: "Unfortunately we don’t have much to sell neither from 2013 nor from 2014. Only 14000 bottles were produced in 2013'. – Wine Advocate, 90/100
