Trimbach: ‘Riesling Lovers Rejoice’ – Vinous


‘Riesling Lovers Rejoice’ – Vinous

Domaine Trimbach is ‘one of the steadfast stars in the Alsace firmament’, says Vinous. Situated in the northeast of France, in Ribeauvillé, they’ve been cultivating some of the world’s best dry Rieslings for almost 400 years.

Their famous Frédéric Émile is a Grand Cru cuvée, and we bought as much as we could get our hands on! The limited 2015 vintage is ’one of the best young FEs I have memory of!’ writes Ian d’Agata of Vinous. Crafted from a 45-year-old site of Grands Crus, namely Geisberg and Osterberg, it boasts a crystalline Riesling structure with fabulous power and complexity.

Offering earlier drinkability and lip-smacking juiciness is the Trimbach Riesling 2021. It captures the purity and mineral intensity of the region’s terroir and is the perfect companion to sushi nights. Blended for consistency from various plots, ‘Riesling lovers will rejoice at this taut and refreshing cuvée’ (Vinous).

This 13th generation family-run operation has mastered the classic, bone-dry and electric style, elevating them to one of ‘the most famous Riesling estates in all of Alsace’ (Wine Advocate). The domaine is favoured by a unique micro-climate and chalky limestone soils, giving incredible definition, linearity and length to their wines.

Currently at the helm of this close-knit family operation is 31-year-old Julien Trimbach. The inclusion of biodynamics and experimentation with other varieties – such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer – have made this historical estate a fascinating place for new wine discoveries.
