2012 Domaine Trimbach Reserve Personnelle Pinot Gris
Made from a selection of Trimbach’s finest parcels of Pinot Gris, here you find a skillful balance of rich, densely packed fruit and laser sharp, firm acidity. Not a shy wine in the least. Big round body, mouth coating fruit. This is a wine produced to accompany hearty fare like lobster, truffle dishes and the king of all, foie gras! Not feeling like something that over the top? Don’t fret, this wine loves strong cheeses too!
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.
Grapes for this wine are hand-harvested close to the vendanges tardive (late harvest designation) and fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures. There is no oak on this wine.
