Trimbach Riesling Alsace Aoc Clos Ste. Hune 1998

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Beautifully perfumed on the nose with seared citrus fruits, flinty minerality and a cardamom like spice note. A touch loose at first but this quickly finds it's focus offering awesome minerality after the sweetish attack. A bit washed out on the mid-palate but really picks it up on the very long finish with it's notes of kaffir lime leaf, faded curry and green walnut tones that frame the precise, bright fruit. 2008-2022 93pts

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.
