94 points Robert Parker

Intense aromas of rose petals and lychee nuts. Rich and spicy with purity of flavors, beautiful elegance and great persistence. Superb with spicy complex foods from around the world.

The soil in the Trimbach vineyards in the town of Ribeauville, part of the Grands Crus Osterberg, is very stony limestone on a sandstone base at 250 to 350 meters above sea level. The well-drained clay-limestone soil on a deep sandstone base supports vines with an average age of 40 years. The grapes are harvested by hand as late as possible in order to achieve maximum ripeness which, in turn, gives an optimal depth of flavor and complexity after gentle pressing in the pneumatic press. The juice enters the cellar by gravity and clarifies naturally before fermentation. The juice ferments in stainless steel at controlled temperatures for 2-3 weeks. This cuvée is vinified almost to complete dryness, the beautiful balance the result of highly concentrated fruit, due to a very low yield.
