Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre 2001
Since 1626, Maison Trimbach has been producing traditional Alsace wines recognised all over the world. he Trimbachs have always had a purist vision. For 12 generations, the Family has been producing dry wines, very strictly structured, long-living and fruity, elegant and balanced: it's the Trimbach Style! The Trimbachs let their wines age in the bottles in the cellar during several years before they release them on the market, especially for the Great Wines, such as Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile. Maison Trimbach's vineyards are all situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are dominant in limestone. They benefit from the alsatian microclimate, thanks to the Vosges Mountains protection, which preserves the plain from the rain. Redolent of roses, lychees and spices, this immensely rich Gewurztraminer is so unctuous and viscous when young that it can seem slightly sweet even though it is fermented almost dry. This massive body is balanced by an almost chalky fresh minerality and extract with a result that the wine boasts the elegance and finesse which are the Trimbach trademark. This long-lived 'Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre' makes a fascinating aperitif but truly comes into its own with foie gras or desserts based on fresh ripe fruit. It is simultaneously rich, powerful and dry and is consequently a brilliant match for spicy, complex, Asian and North African food.
External Reviews for Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre
Sourced from Grand Cru vineyards this reserve level Geewurz is always rich and distinctive. Steve Tanzer in his International Wine Cellar Publication wrote "Scented aromas of smoked meat, clove and flowers. Sweet and ripe but slightly aggressive. A big, oily expression of Gewurztraminer with strong ginger and clove spice character." Very Limited!
