Light and snappy, drink now Pinot Noir! Aromas and flavors of baked red cherries, mushroom/truffles, dried herbs, minerals. The palate is light in body with refreshing acidity. Pair with salmon, roast chicken, pork rilletes.
2010 Domaine Trimbach Reserve Pinot Noir
Not much by way of red wine being grown in Alsace but we love to sample them when they do come our way and this lovely, light and snappy Pinot Noir from Trimbach is a sheer pleasure to smell and sip. Very light body, nearly see-through in its pale red color. Cooked red cherries with a savory mushroom note and a hint of something herbal on the finish. Think light dishes such as salmon, roasted chicken and simple pork dishes. Ready to drink now.
For (3) centuries and 13 generations (since 1626, viticulturally), the Trimbach family of Alsace have produced structured, age-worthy, fruit forward wines with elegance and balance. The family oversees all aspects of viticulture and production. Maison Trimbach vineyards are all located in the vicinity of Ribeauville and benefit from the unique Alsatian micro-climate being in a rain shadow, resulting from the protection of the Vosges mountains to the west.
