Trimbach Pinot Noir Réserve is a single-variety Pinot Noir red wine from AOC Alsace made by Trimbach.
Trimbach is a family winery dating back to 1626. It is located in the medieval city of Ribeauvillé, Alsace. The Trimbach family has been at the helm for 13 generations and currently has 50 hectares of vineyards. Throughout their history they have produced fruity but structured, elegant, balanced and long-living wines. The wine is not aged in foudres or barrels but it does spend a few months or years aging in the bottle in the winery so that it is at its best when it reaches the market.
The Trimbach Pinot Noir Réserve is made with grapes from the best terroirs, including the famous Rotenberg vineyard in Ribeauvillé.
To make the Trimbach Pinot Noir Réserve, the bunches of grapes are completely destemmed when they get to the winery, and then crushed before being placed in vats. The must is then macerated with the skins at low temperature for a few days and fermented.
The Trimbach Pinot Noir is the only wine made here that undergoes malolactic fermentation. After this, the wine is aged for 3 months in stainless steel vats and finally bottled.
Trimbach Pinot Noir Réserve is a classic expression of the Alsace Pinot Noir.
