Trimbach Riesling Alsace Aoc Clos Ste. Hune 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

95+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): 2001 is clearly a great vintage for the Trimbachs, and the '01 Clos Ste. Hune should one day take its place amongst the top vintages of this great wine. It will be interesting to see whether the 2001 or the stunning 2000 Clos Ste. Hune ultimately turns out to be the better wine, as both vintages are monuments in the making. The 2001 is very young and reticent at the present time, but clearly shows tremendous promise in its primary blend of grapefruit, green light, petrol, incipient notes of mint, hard limestone, floral tones and a hint of leesiness. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and very racy, with laser-like focus, great cut, a rock solid core of fruit, brilliant balance and an endless, seamless and utterly magical finish. This vintage of Clos Ste. Hune will need to be buried for at least a decade to really let it come into its own, and it should prove to be a very long-lived and great vintage for this wine. 2018-2045+. (Nov/Dec 2008)

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.
