    February 25, 2017 - Mildly disappointing given how good mature Frederic Emile can be. The trifecta is a balance between fruit, acid and mineral and it's a little lacking in all three.

    February 25, 2017 - Not up to the last bottle of this I had. Some intriguing heady white fruit notes. Mature, and a bit out of sync on the palate, with a slightly oxidative, sour finish. Enjoyable.

    December 13, 2016 - Beautiful bottle-perfect, precise, dry, and Germanic. Delicate in comparison to the Austrian wine that followed it.

    November 16, 2016 - good on opening, then closed; better and more integrated on the 2nd day.

    November 14, 2016 - Last bottle of a case. Very good, still improving. But near full maturity, methinks. Gave two bottles to the ex.

    (Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile) Sourced from grands crus Geisberg and Osterberg, says Jean Trimbach, the vines having an average age of 50 years, with the oldest up to 70. A bright and fresh nose here, limes and minerals in abundance, with a well-balanced and elegant substance. A grainy depth, supple and with plenty of appeal for the future. Excellent potential here.
