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
