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.

I paid $16.99 for this very nice '06 Trimbach Gewürztraminer from Alsace, France. It had a light golden color with a floral fragrance followed by a lychee and spice aroma. It was more full-bodied than most gewürztraminers that I have tasted. On the palate it was dry and elegant; well-balanced and mature with plenty of fruit and spice. The finish was long, dry, and spicy.

Medicial, bitter mid-palate, but nice subtle honey finish.

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.
