Trimbach Gewurztraminer “Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre” 2012 cl 75
The predominantly limestone-limestone “Keuper” soil on which it is produced gives this rare wine a full and powerful style.
Made from old vines on the former wine estate of the Lords of Ribeaupierre, the grapes are selected and harvested at the peak of their ripeness. It is a wine with floral and spicy aromas and a dry personality, yet so rich and so fruity that it almost hints at sweetness … a mere illusion.
In youth, the roundness and viscosity can mask its typical dryness and thinness that is Trimbach’s trademark.
This Gewurztraminer is produced only in the best vintages and can be stored in the cellar for aging for up to 20 years.
Pair with: foie gras, spicy and aromatic dishes, cheeses and fresh fruit desserts.
