Trimbach Riesling Reserve 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Riesling Reserve is a full, rich, complex wine that can also be kept longer. It shows great finesse. It is the limestone soil of Riesling which gives this unique Riesling its complexity and harmony. Riesling is versatile with fine cuisine. It is a delight throughout the meal, particulary with Alsatian specialities like sauerkraut and coq au Riesling, fine fish and shellfish, it is an elegant complement to white meats and white wine sauces.

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.

Riesling Reserve 2006 - 88 points, International Wine Cellar/ Pale, bright yellow. Pineapple, grapefruit and crushed stone on the nose. Juicy and aromatic in the mouth, with noteworthy energy to its clean flavors of underripepineapple and stone. A very good food wine with a light touch. Finishes stony and classic, with good length.

Riesling Reserve 2006 - 88 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2006 Riesling Reserve offers an unusually gentle example of Trimbach Riesling, its scents of pineapple and pear wreathed with flowers and subtly fungal notes. Lush, subtly creamy, but persistently refreshing and tinged with fusil and stony notes, this will make for lovely drinking over the next couple of years.

Riesling Reserve 2010 - 90 points, Wine Spectator/ Delicate, yet backed by focused acidity, offering subtle notes of chamomile, pink grapefruit, almond skin, pine needle and green apple, with a lingering, spice- and mineral-tinged finish.

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% Riesling Color Pale bright yellow straw Bouquet Lemon peel, honeyed fruit, and menthol on the nose Taste Ripe, supple and rich, yet lean and precise with excellent mineral character. Alcohol 13% Serving Suggestions Pairs well with shellfish and white meats in white wine sauces.
