Trimbach, Clos St Hune 750ml 2012France, Alsace
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.
'Cool, aristocratic and iron-rich on the nose where some flinty notes are displayed the 2012 Riesling Clos Ste Hune starts very pure and demanding on the nose. On the palate you can find as much energy and tension as in an electric power station. The wine is very clear, fresh and pure, shows lots of salt on the very elegant and seductive palate. The finish is very long and complex and indicates a terrific aging potential.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 95/100
'Greenish straw. Great balance! Higher residual sugar than usual and super-easy to love. A very flattering vintage of Clos Ste Hune. Just perfection of Riesling balance. No shortage of fruit but extremely tense too. Wonderful breadth and length on a modest, non-flashy frame. Very long.' – Jancis Robinson, 18.5/20
