Product notes

A tribute to the talented winegrowers who have followed us for decades and who share the same passion for exceptional Rieslings. From North to South, these renowned Grands Terroirs and localities sparkled in 2016, the year of the 390th anniversary of Maison Trimbach 1626-2016.

Production notes

Grapes are harvested at maturity then crushed and delicately pressed in a pneumatic press. Vinified in a dry style in stainless steel vats and old casks. No malolactic fermentation, or long ageing on lees to preserve freshness, liveliness and fruity aromas. Bottled in the spring 2017. The wine was released four years after the harvest and already expresses superb development with ageing potential between 10-12 years

Tasting notes

Golden robe with shimmering green reflections. It reveals with finesse its bouquet of ripe fruits with white cherries and its aromas of flowers. Gourmet and seductive on the first palate, its sparkling and crystalline acidity gives it aromatic precision as well as superb length. This gastronomic Riesling is ideal as an aperitif or with grilled fish, shellfish in butter or roasted white meats in sauce as well as traditional French dishes or spicy cuisines.

Notes of petrol and pear are focused and intense on the nose. The palate is bright and lemony, with a silky smoothness. A long, puckery finish leaves a tingly sensation, as well as delicious notes of dill, fennel frond and eucalyptus. This wine is a bit of a slow burner and could easily keep aging, but there's plenty here to enjoy and discover now.

Vivid straw-green. Rich aromas of soft citrus fruits, honey and minerals. Dense, juicy and tactile on the palate, featuring expressive flavors of apricot, beeswax and spices. This fresh, deep, suave Riesling showcases a lovely fruit intensity and boasts an unctuously sweet personality (only 6 g/L residual sugar but actually sweeter-tasting than that number indicates). Made with the best grapes from Trimbach’s many vineyards (previously, they have made a 350th anniversary wine in 1976, a 375th anniversary wine in 2001 and now this one) including such famous grands crus as the Osterberg and the Schoenenbourg.

April 2022

A graceful white that exhibits fragrant petrol, pine and white flowers on the nose, while offering ripe peach and Asian pear fruit flavors finely-meshed with mouthwatering acidity and an underscoring tang of salinity. Harmonious and creamy, with a lasting, spiced finish that echoes the aromatic profile.
