Tasting notes:
'A sleek, minerally white, with well-cut acidity defining flavors of white peach, pine and preserved lemon, showing a rich hint of passion fruit coulis. Fine and creamy, offering a lasting finish. Drink now through 2027.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 91/100

'Bright straw-green. Ripe apple and mango nuances are complicated by fennel and chamomile. Enters broad, then turns focused and taut, displaying reticent fruit flavors and slightly disjointed acidity at present. Closes a little tight on the medium-long finish. It needs another year in the bottle, and in fact the Trimbachs plan to sell it a year from now.' – Ian D'Agata, Vinous, 88+/100

Alc: 12.5%

About Domaine Trimbach:
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.
