External Reviews for Trimbach Pinot Gris Alsace Réserve
Pinot Gris Reserve 2008 - 92 points, Wine Spectator/ This lithe white is framed by snappy acidity and a streak of minerality, focusing the subtle weave of green pear, apple, white peach and fleur de sel flavors, with quiet hints of wax and nut. Shows fine balance throughout, with a pleasant face-off on the finish between the salty mineral character and juicy fruit notes.
Pinot Gris 2005 - 97 points, Wine Spectator/ Focused and tightly knit, weaving racy acidity with flavors of dried papaya, macerated peach, briny mineral and fresh forest.

The Trimbach 2005 Pinot Gris Reserve smells of peaches, brown spices, smoked meat, and musk. Creamy on the palate, yet juicy and refreshing, with striking clarity of ripe peach and musk melon supporte
Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together. Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the family business. The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential. Production Area Alsace, France Grape Varieties 100% Pinot Gris Vinification The grapes are selected by Pierre and Jean Trimbach from the Trimbachs’ own vineyards and from growers with whom the family has long term relationships, and usually picked during the first week of October. The Pinot Gris is vinified to complete dryness and is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. The wine is not oak-aged, as the Trimbachs believe that wood adds nothing to their wines, the salient characteristics of which are extreme purity and concentrated fruit. Color Bright, pale gold Bouquet Juicy peaches and ripe pear Taste Full-bodied with ripe smoky tropical fruit flavors and a long nutty finish. Alcohol 13.35% Serving Suggestions Served well chilled, a good choice for appetizers, fish and shellfish, poultry and other white meats, and many lighter pastas. It also makes a great aperitif.
