Expert Reviews

Rose petal, sweet pea tendrils, celery salt and bacon mingle in the nose of Trimbach’s 2011 Gewurztraminer, whose caressing softness from relatively low acidity does not by any means preclude admirable primary juiciness for a wine from this variety. Understated reprises of the elements anticipated on the nose lead to a satisfyingly sustained, alkali-tinged finish in this well-balanced bottling ideal for enjoying through 2015 (and drinking beautifully in mid-2014). The challenge with Gewurztraminer in this vintage, a Pierre Trimbach notes, is not to get too much weight, and he has certainly skirted that problem here at a modest 13.5% alcohol. Rating 88 - Drink by 2015, David Schildknecht, erobertparker.com (AUG/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

It is a wine with flowery and spicy aromas and a dry personality, and yet so rich and so fruity that it almost hints at sweetness … a mere illusion. In youth, the roundness and viscosity can mask its typical dryness as well as the underlying finesse which is the Trimbach trademark.

Food Matching

The wine is best paired with foie gras, spicy and aromatic dishes, cheeses and fresh fruit-based desserts.
