Tasting notes for the Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 2004 - Maison Trimbach

  • EYE: The wine has a brilliant golden yellow color with luminous reflections. Its clarity is exemplary, indicating the quality of this wine. It displays a beautiful concentration and a slightly visible viscosity.
  • NOSE: Intense aromas of yellow-fleshed fruits such as apricot and ripe peach blend with delicate floral notes of white flowers. Subtle nuances of honey, minerality, and petroleum (typical of a well-aged Riesling wine) add an additional dimension to this aromatic bouquet. Touches of citrus, such as lemon and mandarin, bring a refreshing and pleasant freshness.
  • MOUTH: The palate is elegant and balanced. Flavors of yellow-fleshed fruits unfold magnificently, revealing notes of juicy apricot, ripe peach, and citrus. Lively acidity brings freshness and dynamism, while nuances of honey, flowers, and minerality intertwine harmoniously. The tannins are delicate, giving a silky texture and delicate structure. The finish is long and persistent.

 

In short: The Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 2004 from the Maison Trimbach is a wine of great finesse and remarkable aromatic complexity. Its captivating nose and balanced palate make it an ideal choice for Riesling lovers. It pairs perfectly with fish and seafood dishes, especially shellfish, as well as slightly spicy Asian cuisine. It can also be enjoyed on its own to fully appreciate its subtle aromatic profile. In terms of aging potential, this Riesling can be cellared for 10 to 15 years under proper conditions, allowing for further evolution and deepening of its flavors. It is a wine that will continue to improve gracefully over time.

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.
