This wine is named for Frédéric Emile Trimbach who became famous for providing a new guarantee of quality and authenticity for Trimbach in 1898. The south and south-east facing Ribeauvillé Grand Crus of Geisberg and Osterberg have been producing this wine for several generations. The average age of the vines, 45 years, results in limited yields.
‘The 2012 Riesling Frédéric Emile starts clear, subtle and very elegant on the floral nose. Elegant, piquantly mineral and finesse-full on the palate, with a lot of Spiel and restrained power showing a nice purity and a long and tension-filled finish. A real Trimbach classic to be enjoyed over the next 20+ years.’ 93+ points,Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate, October 2015.
‘This is really exciting. I can't believe the palate of lemon, oyster shell, stone and apple. Full-bodied, dry and exciting. It goes on for minutes. Such grandeur and complexity.’ 96 points, Jamessuckling.com, Sept 2015.
