This vintage has not been rated yet, see 2018 tasting notes:

‘Bright straw-green with golden tinges. Gingery spice and lemon verbena on the nose, with an undercurrent of chamomile and balsamic oils. Ripe and sappy flavors of lime and spices have a floral accent to the long, juicy back end. At once rich and lively, but also gentle and well-balanced on the aftertaste, this should gain in complexity with a few years of bottle aging and strikes me as a very good Mandelberg. As my readers know because I have written before, “Mandelberg” means the “hill of the almonds or almond trees”, an apt name, for this is one of the warmer vineyard sites in Alsace (and along with the Sonnenglanz and the Froehn, only one of three grand crus not up on the Vosges slopes) where almond trees (not the most weather-hardy of trees) actually can and do grow. The Trimbachs farm thirteen plots in the Mandelberg and made their first vintage from this cru only in 2013. For readers who still have or can find a bottle, and in spite of the 2016 Trimbach Mandelberg is a thing of beauty.’ – Terroir Sense, 94/100

Producer information One of the most exciting wine estates in the Alsace region is Domaine Trimbach. Founded in 1626, thirteen generations of the Trimbach family have promoted Alsace and its history through the centuries. Located in the heart of Ribeauvillé near Colmar, the vineyard is composed of a rich, mosaic soils including limestone, sandstone, marl and clay to name a few. These natural assets provide the perfect conditions for an array of aromatic grape varieties. Trimbach wines acquired true international acclaim in 1898 when Frédéric Emile Trimbach received the highest distinction at the International Wine Fair in Brussels. Today, the estate exports more than 85% of its wines and they are much sought-after by connoisseurs around the world.
