This exceptional wine is a product of the terroir in the "Rosacker" vineyard, located in the village of Hunawihr. This parcel of land, which stretches over 1.67 hectares, has been in the Trimbach family for more than 200 years. The south, south-east facing vines are on average 50 years old and lie on a predominantly limestone subsoil. These factors give this Riesling a unique flavor. Flavors of quinine, mint, lime, white flowers and white truffle accompanied by remarkable fruit concentration are enhanced by a refined hint of minerality on the finish. After a few years of ageing, the typical characteristics of the "Clos Sainte Hune" terroir vibrantly shine through the glass.

Trimbach's "Clos Sainte Hune" wine has an exceptional ageing potential as it can age 7 to 10 years after bottling without even reaching its peak.

““If there is one Riesling in the world which every wine lover dreams of tasting and savoring, it is “Clos Sainte-Hune. A high-quality dry wine, distinguished, refined, elegant, with beautifully ripe fruit and a pronounced minerality which lend it its unique temperament. It has its own signature and is sublime in great vintages. It is a wine which inspires dreams thanks to its harmony and its exceptional capacity to age.”” Serge Dubs, World’s Best Sommelier 1989



RP 96 The Wine Advocate - "Trimbach’s 2007 Riesling Clos Ste-Hune displays genuine intrigue in its array of floral, mineral and animal shadings focusing on narcissus, musk, shimmering crystalline stoniness, alkalinity, and savory salinity. Grapefruit and orange are tinged with juniper berry, quinine, as well as hints of white truffle that enhance the resemblance to 1996 (although Trimbachs compare this with their 2001). And while less austere than the corresponding Frederic Emile, this is no less penetratingly or exhilaratingly long. An amazingly extract- and energy-rich, kaleidoscopically multi-faceted Ste-Hune, it should be absorbing to follow for a quarter century or more." WE 96Wine Enthusiast - "Clos Ste Hune comes from a small parcel in the Rosacker Grand Cru vineyard. It is a wonderful, ethereal paean to Riesling—crisp while intensely perfumed with aromas of fennel and licorice. It’s dry in style, with elegant citrus flavors and a straight line of steely acidity, but finishes with a hint of honey. While delicious now, it’s not quite mature and could continue to improve until 2025." JS 96 James Suckling - "Very tight, minerally and reduced on the nose. Shows hints of flint and white pepper. Full-bodied, very dry and layered with some phenolic tension. It's so tight and holding back." WS 94 Wine Spectator - "Very elegant and refined, with good tension throughout from the racy acidity. Flavors of fresh-cut apple, white peach, lanolin, fleur de sel and blanched almond, with a hint of lemon zest, resonate through this tightly knit white, which should open up beautifully with time. Drink now through 2030." V 94 Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Very pale, clear color. Extremely unevolved aromas of quinine, mint, lime, white flowers and white truffle. Dense and exhilarating, with an oily texture and piquant lime and mineral flavors that saturate the palate. Wonderfully pure and stony riesling, but still a baby. Today this is all about grip. The r.s. here is just 1.7 grams per liter, according to Pierre Trimbach, who compares this wine to the superb 2001 Clos Ste. Hune (he's also a great fan of the '05). Rating: 94(+) Points"
