Description

‘Medium gold. Rather restrained aromas of tangerine, dried pit fruits, honey and licorice. Super sweet and thick, with powerf ul (10 grams/liter)

acidity keeping the flavors fresh. A wine of great sucrosity but very clean and vibrant on the finish. To get concentration like this, says Jean, we

usually need to harvest a month later. This bottling was previously offered in ’94 and ’90, but the 2000 version will probably be even longerlived than those earlier vintages.’ 93-95 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2001

Grands Vins d’Alsace depuis 1626

With viticultural origins going back to 1626 this family owned estate produces some of the finest wines not only of Alsace,

but indeed the entire world of wine. Around the villages of Ribeauvillé and Hunawihr, the Trimbach family owns 27

hectares of vineyards including 1.67ha of Rosacker Grand cru (which produces the highly famed Clos St Hune Riesling) as

well as parcels of Geisberg and Osterberg (blended to make the equally renowned Riesling Cuvée Frederic Emile). Geisberg

and Osterberg are located on the hill rising up behind the ‘new’ family winery on the edge of Ribeauvillé. The family moved

from their ‘old’ winery in Hunawihr in the 1890’s! Indeed, the label of Clos Sainte Hune depicts the view to the local church

from the old winery in Hunawihr.

Clos Sainte Hune: a unique terroir in Alsace and a stunning record of greatness

The Clos Sainte Hune is a tiny vineyard of 1.67 ha within the Grand Cru Rosacker. It is situated at the foot of the village of

Hunawihr, and is planted with 50-70 year-old vines. What makes this terroir so special? According to Jean Trimbach, it’s all

about the soil, ‘The terroir is on a rather unique soil of limestone and marl, a rare formation for Alsace.’

Clos Sainte Hune has come to epitomize Riesling elegance and finesse. Complex and powerful, yet not heavy, it displays an

ethereal lightness that belies its concentration and indeed its longevity.

‘The incredible track record continues with a superb 2008 which was recently released and which proves one of the

most promising of the last 20 years. These wines are not cheap, however should you ever consider “buying one to

see the myth”, 2008 is the vintage to go for.’ Moselfinewines.com, March 2016
