2007 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace

SKU #1408484 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of cooked pear, apple and white pineapple follow through to a full body with incredible dryness and a mineral finish. White pepper and oyster shell too. This is so serious and unforgiving yet a phenomenon. Owners say it is the driest Fred ever. Inner quote mark (9/2015)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of Trimbach's top wines, this impressive Riesling, with all its bottle time, is maturing beautifully. It has that petrol character that is typical of aged Riesling, as well as a strong sense of steeliness and intense acidity on the finish. *Editors' Choice* (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2014)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Austere, mineral nose. Fresh, vivid palate is dry and tight, yet doesn’t lack fruit. Excellent grip and long, stony finish. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Racy, finely tuned acidity frames this elegant white, supporting a subtle, layered palate. Shows base notes of petrol and brine, tangy apple, grapefruit zest, fresh forest and candle wax. Long, long minerally finish. (AN) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale straw-green color. Quince, chlorophyll, licorice, menthol, jasmine and lemon verbena on a nose that's surprisingly perfumed for what was a very warm vintage. Fragrant, fresh and clean on entry, with harmonious but lively acidity lifting the lemon and lime flavors complicated by minty herbs, quinine and licorice. Minerally and penetrating on the long, saline finish, showing more flesh than some other Frederic Emile vintages. (ID) Inner quote mark (9/2013)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Riesling Frederic Emile is clear, deep and fruit intense on the nose, very aromatic and mineral. It has over-ripe, dried raisin flavors on the palate that are intense, dry and compact, but does not have the finesse and stimulating elegance of the Clos Ste Hune. (SR) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good pale color. Rather austere on the nose, hinting at underripe pineapple, crushed stone and menthol. Dense, ripe and dry, with terrific sappiness giving a tactile quality to the dusty flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, lime, spices and stone. There's something subtly full about this broad, very long riesling. Here, too, the acidity is nearly eight grams, and the residual sugar less than one gram. Still an infant. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (11/2008)
