F E Trimbach Pinot Noir Reserve 2014

£16.99

 TASTING NOTE

The wine is light and herby on the palate with vibrant strawberry and cherry flavours. Round and structured, the more intense, vegetal characters will develop with bottle age in place of the primary red fruit flavours. The wine is medium bodied and has perfect, soft tannin. A classic expression of Alsace Pinot noir, traditionally served chilled.

In Alsace, Pinot Noir needs the longest and warmest summers to reach optimum maturity and as a consequence Trimbach only vinifies this wine in exceptional years. The grapes are crushed and destemmed followed by temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is not oaked in order to

 preserve fruit purity and freshness. Bottling takes place in the spring following the harvest.

It is advised to drink this wine young and fresh, around 14-15 ºC. It perfectly matches smoked meats, red meats, duck and some cheeses.

AGEING POTENTIAL 3-5 YEARS

The Trimbach family has been involved in making wine since 1626 and has, over thirteen generations, built an enviable reputation for the quality of its entire range. From the Pinot Blanc through to the iconic Clos Sainte Hune Riesling, the wines are considered the benchmark for quality, consistency and style.
The essence of Trimbach, with the obvious exception of the luscious dessert wines, is the traditional dry style in which the wines are made. Many Alsace houses are today making rather clumsy wines with an element of sweetness that detracts from their food matching suitability; not so with Trimbach, whose wines are pure, vibrant and refreshing. It is no accident that the Trimbach wines are listed in every single one of the 26 Michelin Three Star restaurants in France, and are present on the very best restaurant wine lists across the globe.
