Trimbach Reserve Riesling 2018
Pale, bright straw yellow with aromas of lemon peel, honeyed fruit and menthol on the nose. Ripe, supple and rich, yet lean and precise with excellent mineral character. This elegant Riesling, dry and precise, is a worthy accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes especially shellfish and white meats.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A subtle whiff of crushed citrus foliage sets a tone of aromatic, lifted freshness. The concentration and depth of the freshness on the bone-dry palate carries these aromatic notions in a bold, linear and powerful package. Freshness lets the citrus fruit shine, a real triumph in a hot vintage.
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.
