Grapefruit zest, chalk dust, truffle, sassafras and must inform the nose of the 2004 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile. Overtly chalky and palpably extract-rich, with illusive floral inner-mouth aromas, this penetrates with almost severe intensity, leaving the palate saturated with citrus and minerals and, frankly, a bit wrung-out. Don’t look for this wine to rebound for another couple of years –in fact, don’t look for it at all until 2009, when it will be released. The 2005 will almost certainly continue to taste better younger. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate February 2008

Wonderful! Instant charm and complexity. Mature, honey, orange peel, cheese, spice - but a very slight oxidative note on the finish, so not for keeping much further? Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.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.
