Trimbach’s 2007 Riesling Clos Ste-Hune displays genuine intrigue in its array of floral, mineral and animal shadings focusing on narcissus, musk, shimmering crystalline stoniness, alkalinity, and savory salinity. Grapefruit and orange are tinged with juniper berry, quinine, as well as hints of white truffle that enhance the resemblance to 1996 (although Trimbachs compare this with their 2001). And while less austere than the corresponding Frederic Emile, this is no less penetratingly or exhilaratingly long. An amazingly extract- and energy-rich, kaleidoscopically multi-faceted Ste-Hune, it should be absorbing to follow for a quarter century or more. ||”The yeasts were very efficient in 2007,” notes Jean Trimbach, pointing to a collection of wines several of which are below one gram in residual sugar. The grapes and people did good work, too: I cannot recall a collection at this address that was more consistently fine. Only three special bottlings were essayed by Trimbach in 2006, all Riesling, of which the Frederic Emile and Clos Ste. Hune are among the high points of this vintage in Alsace. eRobertParker.com.April, 2010
The Trimbach estate was established in 1626 and is now being run by the 12th generation of the family, Pierre and Jean. Riesling Cuvée Frederic Emile is the signature wine of the family. It is a dry Riesling with lots of mineral character and a great ageing potential. The jewel in Trimbach's crown is the Clos Ste Hune vineyard, which is located just outside Hunawihr. Riesling Clos Ste Hune is widely recognised as one of the finest expressions of Alsace Riesling.
