  • Light golden yellow. Nose with citrus, zest, some green apple, hints of honey, a bit of petroleum notes, and just a touch of spice. Dry with good concentration of flavour, citrus, some green apples, high acidity, good minerality, a tiny bit of spice, slightly viscous, and a long and fresh aftertaste aftertaste with green apples, citrus and mineral. Drinks well now, but definitely youthful at 15, and could take much more cellaring, 92 p.

    Not just a different label, but a special release from late-picked Osterberg Riesling (rather than Osterberg + Geisberg for the regular Frédéric Émile). A bit richer than the regular F.E., and probably a bit younger in style, so perhaps a bit in the direction of the Clos Ste Hune style. While fully dry in the typical Trimbach style, I'd say the richness makes this come across as less bone dry than the typical F.E. from high-acid vintages such as 2001, but still drier than F.E. from ripe vintages.

  • Chicagoer Rieslingfeier (Chicago, IL): This is again, quite a good wine for a dry riesling. There's plenty of ripe fruit and a fair bit of spice on the nose, with the same on the palate. I do pick up a slight bit more oiliness here, and the acidic cut doesn't come off as cleanly as the 2004 Clos Ste. Hune. The stone fruit is quite prominent here and tasty, too, but it seems to be marred by a touch of rot. The finish also comes off bitter.

  • Well appreciated by the HWS group and by me for its intensity and stylish palate. Quite aromatic, it's quintessential Riesling, juicy, ripe, fallen apple, touch of petrol which adds complexity without being overbearing. A little more acidity would be welcome to bring additional focus, though. Drink now; I fear it will become unbalanced soon.

  • Splendid gold colour, powerful aromas of petrol and apple. The palate is dry but with a rich, mouth coating texture, spicy, slightly honeyed finish. Delicious.

  • Actually pretty comparable to the '01 Clos St. Hune in terms of flavours and scents, but much heavier, less intense, less flashy, farther advanced, and with less acid. First time trying this out, very enjoyable. Less in the way of fresh petrol and more in the way of candied lemon and lemon seed.
