2014 Trimbach Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1283868 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 The aromas are rather shy on the nose—there is just a mere floral whiff. The palate is dry and lets us see subtle varietal aromas: golden peach, a touch of honeysuckle spice, a hint of jasmine, aromatic orange zest. This is a restrained, streamlined and elegant varietal expression. Drink now through 2030.  (8/2017)

92 points James Suckling

 This is extremely rich and beautiful yet balanced and bright with spice, aniseed and dried orange. Full-bodied and flavorful. Delicious. All in balance. All the production of Trimbach's gewurz went into this. Available in 2016.  (9/2016)

90 points Decanter

 This wine is hugely aromatic, with fragrant rosewater, lychee and baked apple on the nose. In the mouth it's intense and quite spicy, with zingy stone fruits, mango juice, beeswax and rose. Despite all this it is a dry style, confusing the senses for a moment until the acidity washes over and you go for another sip. Drink with a goats cheese salad.Drinking Window 2017 - 2019.

90 points Wine Spectator

 Linear and finely knit, this offers fresh acidity throughout and flavors of cantaloupe, orchard blossom, nectarine and pickled ginger, underscored by clean-cut minerality that defines the finish. Not a powerhouse, but very elegant. (AN)  (9/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Trimbach's 2014 Gewurztraminer is deep, intense and fresh, but shows the 2014 flavors. Full-bodied, fresh and elegant, with good vitality and gastronomic functionality, this is a vital, racy, elegant and well-structured Gewurz with grip, salt and tension, but a slightly drying finish at the moment.  (6/2017)


 Pale, gold-tinged yellow. Clean, subtle aromas of lime, green papaya, menthol and flowers. Juicy and pure, offering good intensity to the delicate citrus fruit flavors. Shows a slight phenolic edge on the finish, which comes across as a little dry and tart. Happily, there are no signs of volatile acidity from Drosophila suzukii infestation. (ID)  (2/2016)

Additional Information:



- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gewürztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
