Trimbach Pinot Gris Reserve Personelle 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Variety/Vineyard Site: 100% Pinot Gris, from the Grand Cru Osterberg and from the adjacent Lieu-dit of Trottacker above the Trimbach winery in Ribeauville. The soils are quite rich in clay and minerals with substantial limestone deposits. Vinification and aging: After the grapes are gently pressed, the must is allowed to settle to remove any impurities. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks at approximately 20 degrees Celsius. The Trimbach family inhibit the malolactic fermentation, thus preserving the grapes' fresh natural acidity and fruit character, as well as the aging potential of the wines. Style: The Trimbach style of wine is one of finesse, elegance, and superb concentration, preserving the vibrant natural acidity and characteristic fruit flavors of the individual varietal as well as the aging potential of great wine. Food: Excellent with all fish but especially salmon, Pinot Gris is also a superb accompaniment to chicken, veal, Foie Gras and mild cheeses.

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.
