Tasting notes for the Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 2003 - Maison Trimbach

  • EYE: The Riesling Clos Sainte Hune 2003 reveals an intense yellow hue with golden reflections. Its dazzling clarity announces a vintage that has matured with elegance.
  • NOSE: On the nose, this wine unveils a generous aromatic palette. Notes of ripe peach, candied apricot, and honey harmoniously mingle. Upon aeration, floral nuances and subtle minerality, characteristic of the Alsace terroir, are revealed.
  • MOUTH: Opulent and velvety palate. The explosion of tropical flavors, accompanied by refreshing acidity, offers a balanced taste experience. A touch of citrus zest brings a pleasant liveliness, while the persistent finish reveals subtly spicy notes.


In short: The Riesling Clos Sainte Hune 2003 from Maison Trimbach surprises with its aromatic richness, opulent palate, and balance between sweetness and liveliness. This vintage, already mature, can be fully enjoyed now. However, it retains a strong aging potential. Pair this generous Riesling with refined dishes such as Alsatian fish sauerkraut, shrimp curry, exotic spice-infused chicken, aged goat cheese, or exotic fruit tart for an exquisite 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.
