Other Reviews....
The Trimbachs have been producing this wine, from vines belonging to the convent in their Ribeauvillé home village, since 2009. The vineyard is 2.6 ha on the westernmost slope of this Grand Cru which has more limestone than the eastern part of the slope. (Total area of the Grand Cru, 8.5 ha, makes it one of the smallest in Alsace.) Some of the fruit is blended into Cuvée Frédéric Emile.
Greenish straw colour. Real excitement and lift in this. Far from heavy, this is ethereal. Racy with limestone/mineral influence. Drink 2019 - 2032.
