Tasting notes for the Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 2016 - Maison Trimbach 

  • EYE: From the very first glance at this Clos Sainte Hune 2017, we are captivated by its pale and radiant yellow color. 
  • NOSE: The aromas unfold like a floral symphony. Notes of white flowers, fresh citrus, and ripe peach delicately intertwine, creating an olfactory bouquet of great complexity. A fragrance that evokes the hills of Alsace.
  • MOUTH: The first sip reveals a balanced richness in the mouth, complemented by vibrant acidity. Flavors of lime, green apple, and minerality define this cuvée with remarkable subtlety. A silky texture caresses the palate, leading us to a lingering finish.

 

In short: With its Riesling Clos Sainte Hune 2016, Maison Trimbach offers us the very embodiment of the Alsace terroir, with its freshness, balance, and aromatic complexity. A wine that guarantees a memorable tasting. While it can be opened in its youth, give this cuvée a little more time. It will reach its peak in about fifteen years. Pair this nectar with delicate dishes such as crab salad, refined sushi, a seafood sauerkraut, fish tartare, or fine Claire oysters.

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.
