Trimbach Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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.

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.

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.

A fresh, vibrant wine - great as an aperitif and excellent with Asian and other spicy cuisine. An outstanding value.
