Wine EnthusiastA benchmark for Alsace Riesling, Cuvée Frédéric Emile is released only as it approaches maturity, and this 2009 is just getting there now. With kerosene aromas and tight, intensely zesty and mineral flavors, it shows the Trimbach approach-that Riesling needs to be bone dry. It's impressive now, but will be even better from 2016.

Wine AdvocateCitrus zest, fruit pit, huckleberry, and white pepper lend Trimbach's 2009 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile an aromatic piquancy and tactile bite that - allied to an oily texture - might pull a bit too much in a bitter direction were it not for a satisfying and far from vintage-typical abundance of exuberantly juicy lime, tangerine, and kiwi. A high-toned aura of pit fruit distillate hovers over the entire performance. Crushed stone and alkaline mineral notes add depth to an invigoratingly and tenaciously lingering finish. This ought to perform admirably in the classic Frederic Emile role for at least 12-15 years. (Incidentally, it's bone dry, at 13.5% alcohol.)

Wine Spectator A compact white that marries a firm backbone of acidity with focused flavors of apple and green pear, petrol and lanolin, honeycomb and ground spice. Delivers a fresh, zesty finish. Drink now through 2029. 4,000 cases made.
