RATINGS: 90pts Wine Advocate

Maison Trimbach began in 1626 when Jean Trimbach settled in Riquewihr and established the family wine trade.

Jean Frdric Trimbach, born in 1811, was appointed Gourmet of Hunawihr, a position designed to protect the quality of wine exports. He transferred the Maison Trimbach business to Hunawihr, where he served as mayor for many years.

Jean Frdric and his son, Frdric Emile continued the family tradition, and Frdric Emile traveled extensively to promote the wines. In 1898 he received the Certificate of Highest Quality at the Brussels International Show. With Frdric Emile at the helm, Maison Trimbach began bottling its wines in Alsace rather than selling in bulk, providing a new guarantee of quality and authenticity. The contribution of Frdric Emile Trimbach was recognized when the family adopted his initials in the firm's official name: Maison F.E. Trimbach.

Today, the tradition of quality continues with the 11th and 12th generations of the Trimbach family. Hubert and his older brother Bernard, along with Bernard's sons, Pierre and Jean, have continued operations and currently produce approximately 80,000 cases of wines annually. Over one third of their production is exported to the United States. While one of the smallest of the many producers in Alsace, they are nonetheless the largest, most widely recognized Alsace brand in the United States.

Tasting Notes: Wine Advocate 90 points- The straw yellow colored 2012 Pinot Gris Reserve Personnelle is slightly affected by noble rot and thus more rich and sweet than its 2013 successor. (The 2012 was harvested with 15.2% potential alcohol and finished fermentation at 14% and 20 grams per liter residual sugar.) The clear, ripe and rich nose is corresponding with the rich and mellow texture of thus succulent and opulent wine. However, the sweetish fruit is counterpointed by a classically piquant acidity which cuts through rich fruit like a knife. The finish of this firmly structured wine is long and salty and quite dry..Stephan Reinhardt, October/2015
