"Le plus gros potentiel de la série des rieslings, très sec, attendre impérativement, la minéralité donne une élégance inhabituelle cette année." Guide Bettane et Desseauve
The Clos Sainte-Hune is deservedly considered one of the signature wines produced on this domaine. Unlike other cuvées produced by the estate, this is a single-variety Riesling, planted in the heart of Grand Cru Rosacker. Although it does not carry the Grand Cru appellation, its absence does nothing to diminish the excellence of this wine and its rightfully coveted reputation. Riesling Clos Sainte-Hune is generally reserved in its youth and is bottle-aged for several years before leaving the winery. Time is a definitely a gentleman as far as this cuvée is concerned: gradually opening up a persistant round, rich palate with an elegant mineral finish.
Descendants of a long line of wine enthusiasts, Hubert and Bernard Trimbach manage the property with their sons Pierre and Jean. Firmly rooted in Alsace since 1626, the Trimbach name rapidly gained a regional and then international reputation, largely thanks to Frédéric-Emile Trimbach at the end of the 19th century. The property is located on some magnificent terroirs, some benefitting from grand cru status, but appellation approval has never really interested the Trimbach family, who prefer to produce distinguished blends that they market under their own brand names. Their vinification methods have resisted the siren call of modern technology; the owners monitor every stage, with a strict respect for tradition, in order to ensure that the famous "Trimbach style" is preserved, which serves as an international benchmark for Alsace wines.
