Trimbach’s Philosophy and Style
The Family personaly looks after each operation, from planting to harvests and from vinification to bottling.
Maison Trimbach’s vineyards are all situated around Ribeauvillé, where the soils are dominant in limestone (Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr, Bergheim, Rorschwihr, Riquewihr and Mittelwihr).
They benefit from the unique alsatian microclimate, thanks to the Vosges Mountains protection, which preserves the plain from the rain.
The Trimbachs have always had a purist vision. For 12 generations, the Family has been producing dry wines, very strictly structured, long-living and fruity, elegant and balanced: it’s the Trimbach Style !
The Trimbachs let their wines age in the bottles in the cellar during several years before they release them on the market, especially for the Great Wines, such as Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile.
Riesling « Cuvée Frédéric Emile » is the Signature wine of the Family. It’s a dry and mineral Riesling, which remains true to the House’s Philosophy. Coming from the Geisberg and the Osterberg, two marno-calcaro-gréseux soils, Riesling Frédéric Emile has a great ageing potential.
