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).
The exceptionally rare “Sélection de Grains Nobles” (selection of noble berries), results from the selective picking of each grape which has been shriveled by noble rot. This harvest is only conducted in perfect weather conditions. Thanks to botrytis these exceptionally luscious wines boast a unique aromatic complexity and offer a surprising ageing potential. The Gewurztraminer “Sélection de Grains Nobles” are produced in very small quantities and only in the very best years.
The “Sélection de Grains Nobles“ Gewurztraminer is without a doubt an exceptionally food-friendly wine – it evokes the flavors of mirabelle plum tart, ripe pear and quince, honey and fig, while remaining perfectly balanced thanks to the natural acidity which is a result of noble rot.
Drink this alone, or alternatively it will make a great partner to pate or terrines, rich and spicy meals and luciously sweet desserts.
