‘So much mineral and sliced apple character with hints of orange and apple peel. Turns to steely character. Full-bodied, racy and bright. So lively. Great finish. Drink or hold on release.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 96/100

‘To be released around 2022 or 2023. Razor-sharp nose and very tight. Lots to chew on. They could release this and no one would object but I can see why they want it to unfurl a bit.’ – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5+/20

‘The 2014 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is highly complex on the clear, intense and smoky, lemony nose. Clear, fresh, straight and very mineral on the nose, this is a pure but complex, intense, stony Riesling that is pretty austere at the moment. Provided with racy acidity, but concentrated and mineral on the palate, this is exceptional dry Riesling with great tension. To be served in 10, 20 and even in 30 years. 2025-2040’ – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 94+/100

‘Vivid straw-green. Delicate nuances of jasmine and lemon verbena complicate aromas of green apple, lime and minerals. Pure and penetrating on the palate, boasting superb definition to the flavors of gin, mint, minerals, violet and lemon zest. The finish is remarkably crystalline and long. This Frédéric Emile is currently dominated by its Osterberg component (the cuvee is a blend of Osterberg and Geisberg grand cru grapes), which brings chiseled acidity, as opposed to the Geisberg’s ripe fruit personality and licorice quality. Despite the difficult year, this is likely to become a memorable Frédéric Emile. So much so, in fact, that it’s currently impossible to choose between it and the more famous Clos Sainte Hune. 2022-2045’ – Ian D’Agata, Vinous, 94+/100

Producer information 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.
