Trimbach Reserve Pinot Noir 2018
Trimbach Reserve Pinot Noir opens with sweet strawberries, red cherries and violet aromas. Plump and fruity on the palate, which closes in a refreshing finish.
Ageing potential: 5–10 years.
100% Pinot Noir. The vines grow in the marl, limestone and sandstone soils of Alsace. The area has a semi-continental climate characterised by cold and dry winters and hot summers. There is not too much rain because it is protected by the Vosges mountains to the west.
Picking the fruit in early September from a selection of various plots. Crushing and destemming of the fruit followed by a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats to preserve its freshness and fruitiness.

"The nose on this wine is still clouded by reduction. The palate, however, shows off cherry fruit, juicy and bright, but also ripe and generous. This slender, full and vivacious Pinot still needs to knit together." — Anne Krebiehl MW.
