6 reviews for Trimbach Riesling Alsace Cuvee Frederic Emile 2011

  1. WS

    This is a blend from the Trimbach family’s holdings in Geisberg and Osterberg, two grand crus in their hometown of Ribeauvillé. One is planted in limestone and sandstone, the other in muschelkalk, the vines averaging 45 years of age. While 2011 is not the most structured or long-lived vintage, this wine shows no signs of letting up. There’s gentle sweetness to the caramelized apple and fresh pear flavors, lasting with delicacy, purity and clarity.

  2. WA

    Trimbach’s 2011 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile leads with a fascinating nose mingling quinine and smoky black tea with the more usual lime, white peach and crushed chalk. Silken-textured and generously juicy, with hauntingly bittersweet inner-mouth floral perfume, it opens-up in an infectiously juicy manner one seldom expects from youthful exemplars of this cuvee, thus drinking-well before one is able to purchase it! (But at least you can safely count on savoring it in its elegant prime through at least 2025.) Lentil sprout, peach kernel, and almond oil add to the diversity of flavors already intimated on the nose in a superbly sustained, bell-clear and invigorating as well as surprisingly and delightfully buoyant finish.

  3. ST

    Pale straw-green. Minty green apple, jasmine and minerals on the enticing nose. Bright flavors of green apple and ripe citrus fruits are joined by stone fruits and minerals on the long finish. Has enough acidity to maintain clarity and cut. According to Pierre Trimbach, this is on a par with other great recent vintages for this bottling.

  4. JS

    For a seven-year-old dry white, this has great vitality. The more air it gets, the more candied-citrus, pear and dried-herb aromas emerge. Although the wine’s frame is on the sleek side, there’s serious concentration. The finish is very long with a cascade of herbal and mineral notes.

  5. VIN

    Keeping to the same region and grape variety, I chose a 2011 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile from Domaine Trimbach. The nose is driven by Granny Smith apples that intermingle with yellow plum and subtle jasmine aromas. It is nicely defined, though it was given a run for its money by Mittnacht’s Riesling. The palate is poised, with fine acidity and bite, moderate length and a mineral-driven, slightly petrolly finish.

This grape is versatile, used in creating a range of wines from dry to sweet, including sparkling varieties. Typically, wines made from Riesling are unadulterated by oak aging. As of 2004, it was the 20th most cultivated grape globally, covering about 48,700 hectares (120,000 acres), and its significance in producing high-quality wines often places it among the top three white wine grapes, alongside Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
