Tasting notes for the Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 2005 - Maison Trimbach

  • EYE: The Clos Sainte Hune 2005 adorns itself with a golden robe that captures the light beautifully, promising a rich and captivating sensory experience.
  • NOSE: The aromas unfold with elegance, revealing notes of juicy peach, candied citrus, and delicate floral undertones. A mineral touch, characteristic of the Alsace terroir, adds subtle depth to this aromatic bouquet.
  • MOUTH: From the very first sip, one experiences an energetic attack and an opulent texture. The intense flavors of candied lemon and mango harmoniously intertwine with honeyed notes. The balance between acidic vivacity and fruity richness offers a fulfilling taste experience, and the persistent finish leaves a slightly saline impression on the palate.

 

In short: The Riesling Clos Sainte Hune 2005 will not leave you indifferent, thanks to its aromatic depth, persistent freshness, and well-defined mineral character. Although already very impressive, this vintage still holds surprises after a few additional years in the cellar. Attention to enthusiasts seeking complex subtleties. To accompany this prestigious Riesling, opt for delicate dishes such as sole meunière, pan-seared scallops, fresh herb risotto, Alsatian tarte flambée, or aged goat cheese.

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.
