Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Only in the greatest vintages do we make top selections of grapes from the choicest vineyard plots to fashion a rich, weighty, opulent wine which can take many years to develop its full potential. A massive wine that fills the mouth with succulent fruit. Ripe, but not too much, this wine is rich, complex and fat, with a beautiful structure and length. Fruitiness, dryness and smokyness are its typical characters from Alsace and make this Pinot Gris a nice companion of food. It goes together with terrines, foie gras, smoked fishes and fish in sauce, and especially salmon and white meats. It is the ideal compagnon of spicy, oriental and asiatic foods thanks to its exquisite fruitiness which confers fullness and perfect harmony.

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.
