Trimbach Pinot Blanc
F. E. Trimbach
Pinot Blanc

Location: Alsace, France (Appellation Alsace Controlée) The Trimbach winery is located in the town of Ribeauville. Trimbach owns 70 acres in Ribeauville, Hunawihr, and Bergheim. Total production of all wines is about 100,000 cases.

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Blanc

History: The Trimbach family has been making wines in the French province of Alsace since 1626-- a remarkable succession from father to son based on an unchanging devotion to the wines of their beautiful corner of France. Run by the 12th generation of the Trimbach family, Pierre makes the wine and his younger brother Jean sells it. Pierre Trimbach's wine making is impeccable and results in firm, masculine, bone dry and richly fruity wines of enormous breeding -- for some a yardstick by which to judge all others in the region. The top selling brand of Alsace wine in the United States.

Vinification and aging: The wine is vinified to complete dryness - no residual sugar. Fermented in stainless steel vats with no oak aging. Bottling is early to preserve freshness.

Style: Soft and fruity, ready to drink within months of the vintage with a pleasing freshness that enhances most foods.

Food: Chilled Pinot Blanc is excellent as an aperitif or as a complement to fish, chicken and light meat dishes.
