2016 was a great classic vintage in Alsace. Sourced from the Trimbach’s family’s own vineyards and from growers with whom the family has long-term relationships. The wine is fermented to complete dryness in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. There is no secondary malolactic fermentation in order to maintain as much natural acidity as possible.
Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wine is ready to drink upon release.
The wine-growing history of Maison Trimbach dates back to 1626.
Since then, twelve generations of winemakers have tirelessly drawn on their passion for Alsace wines, ensuring the wines they produce stand out for their quality and authenticity, patiently establishing, from father to son, a solid reputation for excellence.
Trimbach wine acquired true international acclaim in 1898 when Frédéric Emile Trimbach received the highest distinction at the International Wine Fair in Brussels.
This success is due in no small part to the jewel in the estate’s crown, the «Clos Sainte Hune» vineyard.
Today, the family vineyard is run by Hubert Trimbach, his nephews Jean and Pierre, and Pierre’s daughter Anne, the oldest member of the 13th generation. Their enthusiasm and ambition keep the family’s tradition, rigor and know-how alive, bringing their wines to the very peak of perfection.
Pierre has been in charge of the « technical side » and vinifications when Jean and Anne are traveling all around the world. Julien, Jean’s son, just joined the Family to work closely with Pierre in the cellar.
This unrivaled expertise makes the “Trimbach style” a reference for Alsace wines across the world
