Muscat Reserve Trimbach 2016

External Review:

/ …sage, spruce needle, and wormwood, mingled with apricot kernel and orange zest that go on to inform a decidedly piquant palate. There is no deficiency in ripeness of flavor, even though the wine harbors barely 12.5% alcohol and is well and truly dry. The finish is a bit brusque yet stimulating.

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.

Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together. Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the family business. The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential. Production Area Alsace, France Grape Varieties 90% Muscat Ottonel and 10% Muscat d’Alsace Vinification Muscat as a grape is very sensitive to what the French call “la coulure,” meaning that it has difficulty flowering if the weather is slightly too cold or humid. Introduced into Alsace around 1850, this variety represents about 350 hectares today out of 14000 hectares total. It is the only Muscat AOC in France which is vinified dry. Color Pale yellow Bouquet Floral nose dominated by lime blossom and white peach. Taste Good grip to the very dry flavors of white peach, lemon, flowers and minerals. Serving Suggestions Great paired with asparagus, melon or smoked fishes. Also excellent as an aperitif.
