Assez expressif dès l'ouverture, arômes d'agrumes et de thé vert. Minéral en bouche avec une richesse assez soutenue et un bon équilibre. Après 2 heures d'aération, des notes fines de pétrole et florales commencent a prendre le dessus mais en bouche le sucre résiduel tend a peser en finale au dépend de la fraîcheur. Je doute que ce vin puisse vieillir au delà de 3 ans.
Time to try a bottle, because of the past recent reviews. I agree it's ready, showing juicy Riesling fruit balanced against the right proportion of acidity, medium-bodied with a slightly rich-feeling, cosseting texture, and a kind of appealing, slightly slimy feel in the mouth. Very nice.
I read yesterday about a 1995 CFE showing brilliantly, but, if you have a few bottles of the '04 in your cellar, it's a good time to try one and begin forming your own judgement about when to drink the rest.

(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.
