Notes

Maison Trimbach traces back to 1626 when Jean Trimbach settled in Riquewihr and established the family wine trade. For almost 400 years, the family has been renowned for its steely, dry and mineral wines that offer true ageing potential.

Frédéric Emile is one of the house's famous Rieslings. It hails from the Grands Crus of Geisberg and Osterberg and is a mineral expression of the vineyards' limestone terroir. Like all of Trimbach's top wines, it is released with a minimum of 5 years' bottle age.

Tasting notes:
'The 2008 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is now in the market and readers shouldn't miss seeking it out. This is a gorgeously matured dry Riesling classic from Ribeauvillé that drinks perfectly today and pairs with many kind of dishes. The wine has an intense citrus color and opens with a very clear, deep, dense and aromatic bouquet of dried fruits along with herbal and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, pure and elegant, yet complex and mineral on the palate, this is a silky textured but well-structured dry Riesling with intense and persistent fruit, fine tannins and lingering salinity. Bottled April 2009, this is a great dry Riesling blend from the Grands Crus Geisberg and Osterberg.' –Wine Advocate, 96/100
