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 but also some petrol hints (?) this bottling shows a nice purity and a long and tension-filled finish. A real Trimbach classic to be enjoyed over the next 20+ years.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate (Oct 2015)
Bright pale straw-green. Fresh nose of green apple, quince lime and herbs. Then minty, almost peppery flavors of green fig, apple and gooseberry. Finishes long and suave with zippy acidity and a hint of minerality at the back. This is still very young but magically combines precision, concentration and refinement as only this cuvée manages. Strikes me as an earlier maturing version of Fréderic Emile, but will undoubtedly be another great star in this wine’s constellation history.
Ian D'Agata - Vinous
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.
Rapierlike acidity defines this lip-smacking, minerally white, with ample petrol and spice notes layered with more subtle flavors of fresh quince, crunchy white peach and lemon parfait on the creamy palate. This is dense and finely knit, and should open beautifully with some short-term aging.
