Editorial Reviews for Trimbach Riesling Alsace Aoc Cuvée Frédéric Emile
Big and bright on the nose with lime and pink grapefruit notes that are backed up by powdery stone and emerging petrol notes. Very ripe in the mouth yet unevolved. A touch ungainly and unusually rich so it lacks a little precision. The finish is long and acid driven with a fair amount of petrol belying it's age. 2008-2018 89pts
intense apple/citrus notes, petrol, long length. could age a few years.
Medium lemon with hints of green, tears. Petrol, minerals, peaches and apples on the nose. Stony and iodine notes. Bone dry, high acidity, med. + alcohol, med. + body. Apples and citrus on the palate. Very good. Lovely balance between levels of acidity and ripeness of fruit. Can age for up to 20 years.
Really enjoyed this riesling. Dry to the core but with intense citrus acidity. Would pick this over a chard. any day of the week.
The first Gewurztraminer I've ever tasted and by far the best. This vintage ranked one of the highest in my opinion when I was afforded the opportunity to have a private wine tasting at Trimbach.
First tried this at Restaurant Saul in Brooklyn, and now I look for it in every wine shop. Dry, fresh, had a kick to it. Great buy too.

Sourced from Grand Cru vineyards this reserve level Geewurz is always rich and distinctive. Steve Tanzer in his International Wine Cellar Publication wrote "Scented aromas of smoked meat, clove and flowers. Sweet and ripe but slightly aggressive. A big, oily expression of Gewurztraminer with strong ginger and clove spice character." Very Limited!
This Riesling is drinking wonderfully today and if you can believe it, it was just released from the Trimbach winery. They hold their top cuvées until deemed ready for consumption. This shows some evolution with the classic "petrol" characteristic. The fruit is unctuous, dry with juicy acidity.
The Wine Advocate review:<br/>The Trimbach family continues to render some of the world's finest Riesling; to uphold the principle that wine of Alsace (unless V.T.) should not taste sweet; to release wines only when they believe those wines say "it's time"; and to ship 40,000 cases (or 40% of their production) to the United States. Notable developments on the occasion of my recent visit were the enhanced quality of their reserve level wines as well as outstanding performances with Pinot Gris. <br/> <br/>By the time early October rains struck in 2005, the team here had harvested everything other than their top Riesling. Yet, even though some of their most striking successes were picked unusually early, the upper-tier Rieslings here seem to have suffered neither dilution nor obscurant botrytis. <br/> <br/>The Trimbachs clearly rolled with any punches nature administered in 2004 (although by t
