Tasting notes:
'Trimbach’s 2011 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile leads with a fascinating nose mingling quinine and smoky black tea with the more usual lime, white peach and crushed chalk. Silken-textured and generously juicy, with hauntingly bittersweet inner-mouth floral perfume, it opens-up in an infectiously juicy manner one seldom expects from youthful exemplars of this cuvee, thus drinking-well before one is able to purchase it! (But at least you can safely count on savoring it in its elegant prime through at least 2025.) Lentil sprout, peach kernel, and almond oil add to the diversity of flavors already intimated on the nose in a superbly sustained, bell-clear and invigorating as well as surprisingly and delightfully buoyant finish.' – David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate, 93/100

'Pale straw-green. Minty green apple, jasmine and minerals on the enticing nose. Bright flavors of green apple and ripe citrus fruits are joined by stone fruits and minerals on the long finish. Has enough acidity to maintain clarity and cut. According to Pierre Trimbach, this is on a par with other great recent vintages for this bottling.' – Ian D'Agata, Vinous, 92+/100

Alc: 13.5%

About Domaine Trimbach:
One of the most exciting wine estates in the Alsace region is Domaine Trimbach. Founded in 1626, thirteen generations of the Trimbach family have promoted Alsace and its history through the centuries. Located in the heart of Ribeauvillé near Colmar, the vineyard is composed of a rich, mosaic soils including limestone, sandstone, marl and clay to name a few. These natural assets provide the perfect conditions for an array of aromatic grape varieties.

Trimbach wines acquired true international acclaim in 1898 when Frédéric Emile Trimbach received the highest distinction at the International Wine Fair in Brussels. Today, the estate exports more than 85% of its wines and they are much sought-after by connoisseurs around the world.
