Trimbach Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2005
The Trimbachs settled in Alsace and founded the family wine business in 1626. At the end of the 19th century, their renown spread across Europe when Frédéric Emile Trimbach produced vintage after vintage of acclaimed Rieslings and Gewürztraminers. Today, the Trimbach family continues the centuries-old dedication to wines with beautifully pure fruit, precise, fine flavors and astonishing longevity. The Pinot Blanc is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, with no malolactic fermentation. The grapes were sourced from the Trimbachs' own vineyards and about 120 growers with whom the family has long term relationships, and vinified at the Trimbach winery in the town of Ribeauvillé, in the heart of Alsace. The fruit was harvested in late September through early October. It is a all-around winner of a white, with clean citrus fruit, classic structure and bright acidity. Wonderful with food or without.
External Reviews for Trimbach Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc
Citrus skin, fresh hay and a note of spice on the nose. Juicy, fruity and nicely balanced, with good cut and a firm finish. Truly dry.
A wine that holds many great memories of my husband and me having lunch on the patio of our favorite French bistro in autumn, this Pinot Blanc is medium bodied with crisp, dry, pure fruit with great acidity and a smooth finish. It is a European Award Winner from a winery that has been around since 1626. It is aged in stainless steel and does not undergo malolactic fermentation, leaving you with a distinct, clean palate after every sip. A wonderful introduction to Alsace wines, it is a must try as a great Gewürtztraminer or Chardonnay alternative. It goes well with salads, vichyssoise, poultry, seafood or even roasted pork.
The medium-bodied 2000 Pinot Blanc has a lovely spice, apricot, smoke and mineral-scented nose. An excellent value, it coats the palate with pear, white peach, and floral flavors, as well as hints of white pepper. This is a well-balanced, fresh, and flavorful wine for consuming over the next 4 years.
A fresh, vibrant wine - great as an aperitif and excellent with Asian and other spicy cuisine. An outstanding value.
Fresh and lively, exuding peach, apple and stone flavors on a firm yet succulent structure. Drink now.
Originally native to the Burgundy region of France, Pinot Blanc from Alsace offers an excellent alternative to Chardonnay at a less expensive price. Trimbach's 1998 vintage is crisp and dry, with a dazzling display of vibrant orange and lemon flavors, concluding with a hint of almonds in the finish.
