Trimbach Pinot Gris Reserve Personnelle 2012 - May 2018 Decanter review
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).
Trimbach only makes its Reserve Personelle range from grapes harvested in top years and the choicest vineyard plots and the results are rich, weighty, opulent wines which can take many years to develop their full potential. This cuvee is from the Grand Cru Osterberg vineyard.
Toasted nuts, marzipan and salinity underscore the peach and apple fruit here. A hint of honey adds nobility and relatively high acidity adds primary juiciness in the long, fascinatingly smoky, nutty, and mineral finish.
This wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
