Trimbach Riesling 2016 (1x 75cl)

The Trimbach Classic 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.

Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2011 (1x75cl)

Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2010  - Nov 2018 Decanter review

This wine was named after Frédéric Emile who became famous for providing a new guarantee of quality and authenticity for Trimbach in 1898. The prestigious signature wine of the house, the “Cuvée Frédéric Emile” is highly prized by connoisseurs and collectors.

The south and south-east facing Ribeauvillé terroirs and Grand Crus of Geisberg and Osterberg which overlook the Trimbach winery have been the source of this wine for several generations. Trimbach took the bold decision of not mentioning the Grand Cru on the label back in the 70’s. Today, Cuvée Frédéric Emile is considered a benchmark of Grand Crus Riesling even though the label does not state the names of the vineyards. 

The average age of the vines, 45 years, results in limited yields. The marl-limestone-sandstone and fossil-flecked Muschelkalk composition of the terroir, as well as the beautifully ripe grapes selected and harvested at the end of October lend this wine a remarkable personality: a dry and powerful Riesling, underlined by a mineral note and firm ripe acidity.

This wine pairs well with gourmet foods, particularly quality fish, caviar, and fine white meats.  “Cuvée Frédéric Emile” vintages age for at least twenty years.

Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile half bottle 2011 (1x37.5cl)

Earning a listing for one of your wines at a Michelin-starred restaurant is a proud moment – so what must it be like to be featured by every single three Michelin-starred restaurant in France (that’s 27 in total)? It’s an accolade that reflects the historic excellence and purist vision of F. E. Trimbach, unquestionably one of the great names of Alsace and a family business that can trace its origins all the way back to 1626. Thirteen generations later, brothers Bernard and Hubert, plus Bernard’s sons, Pierre and Jean, and granddaughter Anne – remain true to the philosophy handed down to them by their 19th century ancestor, Frédéric Emile (the man who put the “F.E.” into F. E. Trimbach).

In stylistic terms, that means wines that are typically made to a bone-dry template, strong on structure, longevity and fruit, with unparalleled elegance, balance and food-friendly versatility. It’s a style perhaps best summed up by Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile: the Trimbach family’s signature wine, bone-dry and tingling with minerality, treading a fine line between powerful intensity and delicate freshness, and built to last for many years.

Very attractive already, quite powerful nose. Full bodied wine with intensity,depth and beautiful mineral flavour. Rich, ripe acidity in the palate. Great personality and finesse.

Delicious with fish, poultry and veal. Great with lobster as well.Traditionally served in Alsace with goose and pork and Alsacian meats.

Trimbach Riesling Reserve 2016 (1x 75cl)

Earning a listing for one of your wines at a Michelin-starred restaurant is a proud moment – so what must it be like to be featured by every single three Michelin-starred restaurant in France (that’s 27 in total)? It’s an accolade that reflects the historic excellence and purist vision of F.

Trimbach, unquestionably one of the great names of Alsace and a family business that can trace its origins all the way back to 1626. Thirteen generations later, brothers Bernard and Hubert, plus Bernard’s sons, Pierre and Jean, and granddaughter Anne – remain true to the philosophy handed down to them by their 19th century ancestor, Frédéric Emile (the man who put the “F.E.” into F. E. Trimbach).

The “Réserve” quality is the result of a rigorous selection of fully-ripe grapes from the Ribeauvillé region. It defines a structured, balanced wine, which is both fruity and subtle.

White flowers, lemon notes and minerality touch on the nose. Fresh and vibrant, grapefruit and citrus, white peach, this wine has a long finish which is a sign of a beautiful future for the wine. This elegant Riesling, dry and precise, is a worthy accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes. It pairs well with sauerkraut, fish (fried, grilled, smoked, in a sauce, raw…), and white meats. The best vintages can be kept for ten years.

Trimbach Riesling Selection VV 2015 (1x 75cl)

The Trimbach’s have a purist vision. For three centuries and across 13 generations, the family has produced wines that are structured, longlived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. The family personally looks after each operation, from planting to harvests and from vinification to bottling.

The vines are 50 years old from Ribeauvillé area, from parcels with marl and limestone soil. Handpicked as late as possible in order to achieve maximum ripeness, which in turn, gives optimum depth of flavour and complexity. The grapes are pressed very gently in a pneumatic press. The juice ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for 3 to 4 weeks.

The wine is not oak-aged, and is vinified to complete dryness with no residual sugar. Bottling is done early to preserve freshness, and the wine rests in bottle in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wine is both ready to drink upon release but also can be cellared.

Elegant, dry and precise. Pairs best with shell-fish, seafood, pork, poultry, veal and pastas.
