Established in 1626, the Trimbach family has a wine-making history stretching back almost 400 years. It was not until the late 19th century, however, under the leadership of Frédéric-Emile Trimbach, that the business began to expand. Success came when he exhibited the wines at an international fair in Brussels in 1898, to much acclaim. Since the days of Frédéric-Emile the house of Trimbach has remained a family run business, based in Ribeauvillé. Today, Jean and Pierre Trimbach are in charge of the winery. The Trimbach family currently own vineyards scattered across three villages, with an emphasis on planting Riesling and Gewurztraminer, and the style associated with the house is one of dry structure and flavorsome with firm acidity where appropriate. Trimbach are not particularly known for their red wines, but they do produce a basic Pinot Noir as well as a Reserve Personelle, as well as basic cuvées of many of the typical Alsatian varieties, including Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner. Trimbach produce both late harvest wines of Alsace, the Selection de Grains Nobles and Vendanges Tardives wines, made from Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris or Muscat. These make a departure from the classic Trimbach style as they naturally exhibit residual sugar and possibly also characteristics of noble rot, but they still have the necessary acidity to maintain balance and freshness.

Big and bright on the nose with lime and pink grapefruit notes that are backed up by powdery stone and emerging petrol notes. Very ripe in the mouth yet unevolved. A touch ungainly and unusually rich so it lacks a little precision. The finish is long and acid driven with a fair amount of petrol belying it's age. 2008-2018 89pts

Nuts and minerals on the nose. Attack is plain and dry but enjoyable once I got over the thought that I was munching down on a lemon. That first pucker was profound. Finish has slight hints of pear but disappears very quickly.

Light golden hue, nose of minerals, fruit and some typical Riesling plastic-ness. Acidic attack followed by some lush fruit. Fairly full bodied, with a slightly sharp finish. Good, but a little pricey for the quality for me.

Slate and lime zest on the nose. Slight peat smoke. Flavors of dried apricot, candied orange peel, sea salt and star fruit. Well integrated and elegant with firm acidity. It's a very salinic riesling, but overall, nice. 10/8/11

A nice Alsatian Riesling: fruit, hint of mineral, more than sufficient acid, though.

The Trimbach Gewurztraminer is gold in color with aperfumed nose of lychee fruits and spices. The wine is rich, intense, luscious and the finish is dry and spicy.

The white wines of Alsace, named after their grape varietal-and not their place of origin-are another world altogether: mostly light to medium-bodied, mouthwatering and will accompany fish, simple roasted chicken and vegetable dishes wonderfully.'Light-bodied and fresh, with racy acidity enlivening flavors of anise, fresh quince, blanched almond and grapefruit zest. Lacy, with a delicate finish.' - Wine Spectator

The fruitier and spicier: a unique wine. In Alsace, this grape that reaches its perfection. Its dry character allows fans to enjoy as an aperitif or with specialty in personality.

Classic Alsatian Gewürztraminer: dry, elegant, and mineral, with fine floral aromas. A very nice bottle, and an excellent introduction to one of the most delicious and distinctive grape varieties there is.

Classic Alsatian Gewürztraminer - dry, elegant, and mineral, with fine floral aromas. Very nice.

This wine a classic Alsace Riesling with the intensity, dryness and age-ability that are the hallmarks of the region. Wine Spectator scored it 92 points and said "Peat smoke and forest floor notes accent the dried apricot, candied orange peel, sea salt and star fruit flavors, followed by a modest finish. This well-integrated, elegant wine is just beginning to show some age, but the firm acidity suggests many more years to come. Drink now through 2020." Very Limited!
