Tasting notes for the Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 1976 - Maison Trimbach

  • EYE: The Clos Sainte Hune 1976 reveals a deep, vibrant, and luminous golden color, evoking the warm tones of a summer in the vineyards of Ribeauvillé. The intense robe testifies to its aging, promising an exceptional tasting experience.
  • NOSE: From the first whiffs, the nose is greeted by a complex aromatic palette. Notes of honey, light petrol, and candied citrus harmoniously mingle. Mineral aromas emerge, revealing the typicality of the Alsace terroir and the distinctive signature of this exceptional Riesling.
  • MOUTH: The tasting unveils the richness of this vintage. In the mouth, the balance is remarkable, with lively acidity bringing freshness and dynamism. Flavors of ripe yellow fruits, delicate honey, and subtle minerality confirm the exceptional quality of this white wine.


In short: The Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 1976 from Maison Trimbach has definitively convinced us with its golden robe, complex nose with honeyed and mineral aromas, and balanced palate, marrying zesty freshness with fruity richness. This remarkable vintage has reached its peak but can still be enjoyed over the next 5 to 10 years without worry.

Flagship wines of Alsace


Founded during the 17th century by Jean Trimbach, the Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé (Haut-Rhin region, on the Alsace Wine Route). The family owns over 40 hectares of vineyard, sprawling across a few villages such as Hunawihr, Bergheim or Mittelwihr. In this region, the limestone soil is perfect for Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Sylvaner...

The Trimbach Family is known for taking great care of its vines, and nature in general. One of their most prestigious "cuvées" is the Clos Sainte Hune, dubbed "World's Best Riesling" according to Serge Dubs (World's Best Sommelier in 1989), created 200 years ago. It comes from a great growth monopole called the "Rosacker d'Hunawihr" (1,67 hectare), and only 8000 bottles of this very special Riesling can be produced each year.
