Tasting notes for the Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 1992 - Maison Trimbach (Magnum)

  • EYE: The Clos Sainte Hune vintage 1992 displays a pronounced golden hue. Its brilliance and clarity testify to careful craftsmanship.
  • NOSE: This white wine exudes remarkable olfactory complexity. Aromas of candied lemon, honey, and wet stone intertwine harmoniously. Slightly evolved notes evoke subtle touches of beeswax, a testament to slow and refined maturation.
  • MOUTH: The tasting reveals a palate of great finesse. The initially brisk attack gradually gives way to a highly complex flavor profile, combining citrus, dried fruit, and wet stone notes. The characteristic liveliness of Riesling is subtly balanced by a creamy texture, giving this cuvée a wild elegance.

 

In short: The Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 1992, available in magnum format, offers a rich sensory experience, combining a golden robe, a complex nose, and an elegant palate. Maison Trimbach presents us with a wine that has reached its full potential but can still evolve favorably over the next few years. Serve this masterful Riesling with delicate dishes such as almond trout, pan-seared scallops, seafood risotto, fine sushi, or foie gras terrine for an unforgettable tasting experience.

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.
