Winemaker Notes

"The 1998 Riesling Clos St. Hune is a spectacular wine. It displays a magnificent aromatic purity, with complex herbal, mineral, and crisp pear scents. Medium to full-bodied, and awesomely broad, powerful, and harmonious, this tightly-wound, slate, chalk, lemon-lime, quartz, and cocoa powder-flavored wine is silky-textured and breathtakingly intense. It should be at its peak of maturity between 2006 and 2015+."
-Wine Advocate

Rated by many judges as the greatest Alsace Riesling of all, Clos Sainte Hune comes from an exceptional, 1.3 hectare plot near Hunawih. Dry yet succulent, of phenomenal complexity, this wine develops an extra-ordinary aftertaste of minerals after a few years in bottle. Of great longevity and very rare (production rarely exceeds 7000 bottles), Clos Sainte Hune takes at least seven years to reach its peak.

Trimbach Maison Trimbach Winery Image

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.

Pierre Trimbach (winemaker since 1979) was named one of the world’s Top Ten White Winemaker by Decanter Magazine in 2006. He was also named “Wine Personality of 2016” by Betthane & Desseauve Magazine and they score Cuvée Frederic Emile 2008 a rare 20/20.
