The Trimbach style of wine is one of finesse, elegance, and superb concentration, preserving the vibrant natural acidity and characteristic fruit flavors of the individual varietal as well as the aging potential of great wine.

The selection of very ripe grapes allows this Pinot Gris Réserve to match wonderfully with exotic, asiatic and japanese food. Superb with food, the Pinot Gris comes into its own with terrines, foie gras, smoked fish, fish in sauce (notably salmon) and white meats. One of the noblest of Alsace grapes, it produces a full, heady, rich fruity style, often with a lushness of aftertaste. Its great depth is balanced by the crisp acidity that gives structure and longevity. A slight smokiness, combined with underlying delicacy, is a typical feature.


"A dry white, with hints of honey accenting the subtle star fruit, orange zest and apple flavors. This has a pleasant, juicy balance, with well-meshed acidity and lingering beeswax and nut notes on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 10,000 cases imported. –AN" -Rated 89, Wine Spectator

"The Trimbach 2005 Pinot Gris Reserve smells of peaches, brown spices, smoked meat, and musk. Creamy on the palate, yet juicy and refreshing, with striking clarity of ripe peach and musk melon supported by nine grams of residual sugar yet with scarcely a noticeable hint of sweetness in a finish dominated by smoked meat and salty, chalky minerality." -Rated 89, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Pale yellow-straw color. Ripe aromas of stone fruits, smoke, butter and honey; this smells like pinot gris! Ripe, fat and easygoing, with a lovely hint of sweetness . This virtually has the weight of chardonnay but is perked up by harmonious, ripe acidity. Rich but shapely wine, from grapes harvested before the rain caused potential alcohol levels to decline. A satisfying drink with a brisk edge to its finish. This is Trimbach's best-selling wine in the U.S." -Rated 89, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
