The world-renowned Riesling Clos Ste. Hune is produced from 40 year old vines in a 1.38 hectare parcel (3.4 acres) located within the Rosacker grand cru. Some of the finest Rieslings I have ever tasted have hailed from this tiny plot. Crisp, youthful aromas of lemons are found in the medium-bodied, dense, and highly-focused 1996 Riesling Clos Ste. Hune. On the palate it offers extraordinarily powerful layers of lime-drenched minerals, a vibrant satiny-texture, and huge richness. This unbelievably long wine is massively structured, concentrated, and backward. It will require patience. Drink this gem between 2005 and 2015. Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate June 1999

A great Riesling, balancing intense, pure flavors of apple, quince, peach and apricot with a filigreed steel structure and a smoky, stony element from the site. Intense and ethereal at the same time, it melts in the mouth, leaving the essence of its flavors on the long finish. Drink now through 2012. 750 cases made. WineSpectator.com

The Trimbach estate was established in 1626 and is now being run by the 12th generation of the family, Pierre and Jean. Riesling Cuvée Frederic Emile is the signature wine of the family. It is a dry Riesling with lots of mineral character and a great ageing potential. The jewel in Trimbach's crown is the Clos Ste Hune vineyard, which is located just outside Hunawihr. Riesling Clos Ste Hune is widely recognised as one of the finest expressions of Alsace Riesling.
