Since 1626, the Trimbach family have been a reference point for fine Alsace wine. They are also one of the largest owners of Grand Cru vineyards in the region which account for an impressive third of their total production. At every level, their wines embody the celebrated Trimbach style: structured, long-lived, fruit-driven, dry, elegant, and above all balanced. Family is also central to everyday life at Trimbach. Winemaking is expertly managed by 12th-generation Pierre, alongside his nephew Julien.  Pierre’s brother, Jean, and Pierre’s daughter Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, are global brand ambassadors. In 2023, Trimbach was certified HVE-3 Organic reflecting their dedication to creating the highest-caliber expressions of their terroir.


The select vineyards include the lieu-dit of the Trottacker-Forst with marl, limestone and sandstone soils and Trimbach’s own old vines (45+ years) in Ribeauvillé which have southeast exposures. Other sites are the Haguenau and Pflaenzer, and Grand Cru Altenberg, which has limestone soils and very stony red marls, which are shallow and rich in fossils, and old vines (50+) in Bergheim, with a southern exposure. 2021 was a rather humid and complicated growing season which was very demanding in terms of organic sprayings. Despite hard work and extreme care the harvest was down 30% in volume. Thanks to vigorous selections, the fruit was brilliant and deliverd a classic vintage with high natural ripe acidity.

Winemaking & Aging

Tasting Notes

Structured and fruity, this wine reveals itself with finesse. Characteristic of the geological richness of the limestone terroir of Ribeauvillé, it expresses itself with a beautiful width in the mouth. Always in balance, it is of course dry and chiseled with a gourmet and charming side. The finish is mineral and saline.


This elegant, medium-weight dry riesling is brimming with white tree fruit aromas plus notes of spring blossoms and garden herbs. You can’t fault it for charm, but neither can you for balance and structure. Long and bright citrusy finish. From old vineyards in Ribeauville and Bergheim. From organically grown grapes. Drink from release. -J.S.

James Suckling - April 2023


This 2021 Riesling Réserve is only made from estate grapes from the villages of Bergheim and Ribeauvillé. A touch of reductive smoke informs the subtle tangerine scent on the nose. The palate has a lovely taut stoniness and gentle smiles of Mirabelle, focus and depth. It strikes a beautiful balance and glories in freshness. This will shine with age. (Bone-dry) -A.K.

Vinous - January 2023


A rich, creamy style, with nice roundness to the peach, sun tea and subtle tropical notes. Offers good concentration on the palate, with verbena-laced acidity and crushed flint echoing through the steely, persistent finish. Drink now through 2031. 4,500 cases made. -K.B.

Wine Spectator - September 2023


Here is a linear style with great focus on its yuzu, pineapple and lime flavors, while an earthy element glides along the edges. Fine and silky, with a salty crunch marking the well-executed finish. Taub Family Selections. —A.Z.
