Trimbach – the world’s most admired dry Riesling


The world’s most admired dry Riesling

For 400 years, family-run Domaine Trimbach has been crafting ‘the single most admired dry Riesling made anywhere’, according to Jancis Robinson. Today, they’ve solidified their position as ‘the most famous Riesling estate in all of Alsace’, continues Wine Advocate.

Trimbach is known for their bone-dry and electric, structured Riesling, and the Trimbach Riesling Réserve 2020 speaks of the quality and authenticity of the property. It’s produced from mostly low-yielding old vines on limestone soils around Ribeauvillé. The warm 2020 vintage shaped wines of amazing concentration and complexity marked by a driving acidity, which will allow the Réserve to age gracefully for decades. If you can’t wait, the softer Riesling 2020 offers earlier drinking.

Founded in 1626, thirteen generations of the Trimbach family have promoted Alsace and its history throughout the centuries. Trimbach’s proven track record shines through two of their top cuvées – Clos Ste Hune and Frédéric Emile.

We’ve acquired a small parcel of the rare and iconic Clos Ste Hune 2017. From Rosacker, a single cru dominated by limestone clay, this is quintessential Riesling, with Robert Parker asserting that it’s the ‘finest produced in France, and can rival any Riesling produced in the world’. Another of the house’s famous Rieslings is the Frédéric Emile 2014. Hailing from the Grands Crus of Geisberg and Osterberg, it’s a mineral expression of the vineyards’ limestone terroir. Like all of Trimbach’s top wines, it’s released with a minimum of 5 years’ bottle age.

Trimbach offers a range of aromatic wines that are well worth discovering. Try the Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, and increasingly popular Alsace Pinot Noir.
