Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together. Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the family business.

The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential.

Production Area
Country: France
Region: Alsace

Grape Varieties
100% Pinot Gris

Vinification
The number of Trimbach’s vineyards dedicated solely to Pinot Gris, and expressly late harvest, continues to grow. Pinot Gris is possessed of a naturally strong acidity, which makes it a regular candidate for late harvest wines in both Vendanges Tardives and Sélection de Grains Nobles. Sélection de Grains Nobles is produced from individually, hand-picked, thin-skinned Pinot Gris grapes affected by noble rot (botrytis cinerea). "Selection de Grains Nobles" is especially rare because it is harvested only in perfect conditions.

Color
Gold with orange tinge

Bouquet
Aromas of tropical fruits, orange peel, honey and damp earth

Taste
It is more rich than overwhelmingly sweet, showing structure, acidity and a toasty character. A finely crafted wine, packed with intense flavors and a fresh aftertaste

Alcohol
13%
