A Dream Brew
2008 Trimbach Clos Ste. Hune

The 2008 Clos Ste. Hune is the most anticipated release of this great wine that we've seen.

Jean Trimbach has called the 2008 vintage in Alsace the best since 1990, and possibly in the last 100 years.

Clos Ste. Hune is one of the greatest Rieslings on the planet, and one of the great wines of the world. No dry Riesling comes close to its track record for aging profoundly.

Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend an epic Trimbach tasting with Clos Ste. Hune going back to 1975. Just how incredibly amazing the wine is came into clear focus.

The 2008 Clos Ste. Hune seems destined to be a historical vintage for the wine. The 2008 is jammed with chiseled minerality and loaded with depth, extract and pitch-perfect harmony. It’s a dream brew of precision, energy and length. Even in the context of Clos Ste. Hune's illustrious history, the 2008 looks like a masterpiece in the making.

The 1.67ha Clos Ste. Hune vineyard has an undeniable magic the same way that Montrachet or Clos de Mesnil do. Few vintages have captured the soul of this elite site with such clarity as the 2008. For Clos Ste. Hune lovers, this is a don't miss and one for the ages.
