Trimbach, Clos St Hune 750ml 2013France, 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.
'As readers know Trimbach's iconic Clos Sainte Hune comes from a 1.67 hectare plot on the Grand Cru Rosacker but is sold as Clos Ste Hune since 1919. The densely planted vines are pretty old (more than 50 years on average), with the oldest planted in the 1940s and the youngest in the 1980s. Bottled, like all the prestigious wines of Trimbach in April 2014, the 2013 Riesling Clos Ste Hune shows a very clear and deep, dusty/smoky, mineral nose which impressively reflects the Muschelkalk terroir. Rich, precise and pure also on the nobly textured and highly elegant palate this expressive and full-bodied Riesling is penetrating mineral and piquant but also very juicy. The finish is extremely long and complex. Very promising and stunningly accessible already. However, this wine won't be in the market before 2019/20.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 95+/100
