The remarkable richness and depth of this wine is partly due to a special soil based on marl and limestone. It comes from the ancestral vineyards of the lords of Ribeaupierre and the grapes are never picked before they have reached maximum ripeness. It is only made in exceptional years.
Redolent of roses, lychees, spices, this immensely rich Gewurztraminer can misleadingly seem slightly sweet. This is misleading. In youth, the roundness and viscosity can mask its typical dryness as well as the underlying finesse which is the Trimbach trademark.
This long-living wine makes a fascinating aperitif but truly comes into its own with foie gras or desserts based on fresh ripe fruit.
This rich and powerful but dry Gewurztraminer will match every World Cuisine where various tastes, spices and exotism blend with happiness.
