Food Pairings for Trimbach Riesling Alsace Aoc Cuvée M
As a big fan of German Riesling, the drier, crisper style of an Alsace Riesling always comes as a shock to the palate and this one was no exception. I bought the bottle so my husband could try a different style, and while it was ok, I prefer Sauv Blanc or Chardonnay when I want a drier white wine. This one had lots of lively acidity and citrus flavors - would have been nice with a rich chicken dish.

Riesling 2008 - Trimbach : Riesling 2008 - Weißwein von Trimbach Trimbach´s Philosophie ist es, die großen Weine wie Riesling und Gewürztraminer erst nach drei Jahren Flaschenlagerung in den Verkauf zu geben. Denn erst nach dieser Reifezeit entwickeln die Wein ihre besondere Finesse, eine herrliche mineralische Struktur und große Klasse.Der Riesling 2008 ist ein wunderbarer Aperitif, er passt auch gut in der Sommerküche zu Salaten, Meeresfrüchte und Austern.Weingut: Trimbach Land: FrankreichRegion: ElsassRebsorte: 100% RieslingInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,0 g/lRestsüße: 3,5 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 2-4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12 °CAuszeichnungen für den Riesling 2008 - Trimbach:91 Punkte - Wine Spectator Weißwein > Frankreich > Elsass
Trimbach wines are the only wines that appear on the winelists of every Michelin three star Restaurant in France. The hallmark of good Alsace Riesling is a clean, dry finish with beautifully balanced acidity and that's exactly what this 2008 from Trimbach delivers...and more. The Wine Spectator just scored it 90 points saying "There's a pleasant salty tanginess to this wine, underscoring flavors of Gala apple, grapefruit and stone, with a hint of petrol. Clean and well-defined by the firm acidity, yet well-meshed and elegant overall, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020."
WS 90 Pts - Winemaker Notes - This Riesling is a great classic of Alsace. At once delicate and vital, its intense fruit is given great length by a backbone of crisp acidity producing some of the world's greatest and longest tasting wines.
Since 1626, Maison Trimbach has been producing traditional Alsace wines recognised all over the world. The Trimbachs have always had a purist vision. For 12 generations, the Family has been producing dry wines, very strictly structured, long-living and fruity, elegant and balanced: it's the Trimbach Style! The Trimbachs let their wines age in the bottles in the cellar for a few, or sometimes several years before they release them on the market, especially for the Great Wines, such as Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile. Maison Trimbach's vineyards are all situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are dominant in limestone. They benefit from the alsatian microclimate, thanks to the Vosges Mountains protection, which preserves the plain from the rain. Elegant and classic with grapefruit and white peach on the nose fully integrated into a food-friendly structure. The drivers are minerality and a crisp lemony acid backbone leading in to a long finish. This Riesling is dry, elegant and restrained, with a deliciously food-friendly bite. In Alsace this edge is what goes so well with, and cuts straight through, the local cuisine. Goose, sauerkraut and onion quiche are the watchwords here. Moving out of Alsace, it would be ideal with rich fish dishes, rice (legendary with kedgeree), pork and modern oriental food from sushi to light curries.
