    Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2016 is a prestigious and sought-after wine from Maison Trimbach, crafted by the skilled winemaker Pierre Trimbach. It originates from the Grands Crus Geisberg and Osterberg terroirs of Ribeauville, where the vineyards face the south and south-east, ensuring optimal sun exposure. The vines, with an average age of 45 years, produce limited yields, resulting in grapes of exceptional quality.

    In the glass, this Riesling displays a luminous straw-yellow color that hints at its vibrancy. The nose reveals a complex and inviting bouquet with mint-tinged aromas of nectarine, tangerine, and powdered stone, complemented by a subtle hint of licorice. On the palate, it captivates with its bright, juicy, and dense character, showcasing a remarkable balance of acidity and sugar. The stone fruit and herbal flavors are met with a mineral note that adds depth and precision to the overall profile. The finish is multilayered and exceptionally long, leaving a lasting impression of clarity and a saline tang.

    James Suckling awards it an impressive 96 points, praising its beautiful lemon-sherbet note and the array of herbaceous and floral nuances, which add further complexity. The wine’s powerful acidity and unmistakable dryness contribute to its elegance and overall enjoyment.

    Wine Advocate gives this vintage 93 points, highlighting its clear and slightly flinty bouquet with citrus aromas. The palate is described as round, elegant, and intense, showcasing persistent salinity and a remarkable phenolic structure. While already crystalline and filigreed, the wine has aging potential and will further develop its talents over time.

    Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2016 is a dry and powerful Riesling that pairs exceptionally well with great gastronomy, noble fish, caviar, and fine white meats. For collectors and connoisseurs, this wine promises to mature beautifully for twenty years or more, making it a true gem in any cellar. Enjoy it now to experience its mineral drive and precision or savor its evolving complexities in the years to come.

    The 2016 Riesling Frédéric Emile reveals a clear, bright and slightly flinty bouquet with citrus aromas and delicate intensity. Round and elegant on the palate, this is a powerful, intense and complex cuvée with persistent salinity and remarkable phenolic structure. Although this is a rather crystalline and filigreed Frédéric Emile, it still needs some time to show its best talents. This has 13.2% stated alcohol plus almost two grams per liter of residual sugar. Tasted at the domaine in May 2022.

    The lemon-sherbet note here is really beautiful. Then comes a wealth of herbs, ranging from thyme to parsley, with a touch of sea salt, before turning to more floral nuances, such as cherries and almond blossom. The powerful acidity seems to surround the whole mouth and makes this almost like licking a lemon; the unmistakable dryness is all the more enjoyable because of it. Long and very elegant on the finish.

    Luminous straw-yellow. Complex, mint-accented aromas of nectarine, tangerine and powdered stone, plus a hint of licorice. Then bright, juicy and dense, showing outstanding acid-sugar balance and a penetrating juiciness to the stone fruit and herbal flavors. Finishes multilayered and very long, displaying noteworthy clarity and limy cut on the saline finish. Wine lovers everywhere know just how great Frédéric Emile Rieslings can be, but this looks to be a real knockout in the making; I absolutely love this wine’s mineral drive and precision. It pulls off the neat trick of being both very ageworthy and also lovely to drink right now. I was happy to know that my palate was still working after an extremely long day of tasting when I told Pierre that in this vintage of Frédéric Emile I found more of the Geisberg than the Osterberg (in most vintages, the wine is a blend of 60/40 Osterberg-Geisberg, at times even 70/30, but this year it’s more like 55/45).
