Why You'll Love It?
The Trimbach family has been making wines since 1626 and has built its reputation for being one of the greatest names in the Alsace over 13 generations. This wine's rare and powerful style is derived from the special “Keuper” marl-limestone soils on which it is grown. Produced from old vines from the former wine estate of the Lords of Ribeaupierre, the grapes are selected and harvested at the peak of their ripeness. This wine is not produced every year, but only when the Trimbach Family believes that the quality is high enough. The grapes used are left to ripen very late, thus acquiring concentration and complexity, and bunches are individually hand harvested.
Colour golden with tremendous fragrance of honey and wild flowers. It has the most incredible palate with delicious and complex pear, nectarine and other white stone fruit flavours. Off dry. Deep and ethereal this French wine is mega-exciting with real class and a sense of place. Stunning really.
