Maison Trimbach : Riesling "Clos Sainte Hune" 2006

Alsace - White - 12.5° Maison Trimbach Maison Trimbach 2006 F177/06
  • Parker : 93
  • J. Robinson : 17,5
The Clos Sainte Hune is an exceptional terroir located in the heart of the Rosacker Grand Cru of 1,67 hectares of pure Riesling. It has been the property of the Trimbach family for over 200 years. The Riesling Clos Sainte-Hune 2006 of the Maison Trimbach has a golden tinted straw-coloured robe. On the nose it is mineral, also marked by yellow fleshed fruits and citrus fruits. On the mouth, it is fresh and pure with fruity savours. This great Riesling is pleasant to taste already or in two or three years. The small annual production, an average of 8000 bottles, makes it a precious wine coveted by Riesling amateurs and collectors around the world.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Fresh lime, yellow plum, musk, and intimations of chalk dust in the nose of Trimbach's 2006 Riesling Clos Ste-Hune usher in a strikingly fresh, firm palate possessed of meat stock and game-like animal undertones. This bottling of barely over 12.5% in alcohol is much more tightly-stitched than the corresponding Frederic Emile, and finishes with penetrating, bright length, combined with overtly crushed stone minerality. No Alsace 2006 of my experience can top this for focus, clarity, or long-term (I would estimate 12-15 years') aging potential, although the Frederic Emile is in its very different way more striking, as well as more fun to drink now.
