The average age of the vines, 45 years, results in limited yields. The marl-limestone-sandstone and fossil-flecked Muschelkalk composition of the terroir, as well as the beautifully ripe grapes selected and harvested at the end of October lend this wine a remarkable personality: a dry and powerful Riesling, underlined by a mineral note and firm ripe acidity. This wine is named for Frédéric Emile who became famous for providing a new guarantee of quality and authenticity for Trimbach in 1898. The prestigious signature wine of the house, the "Cuvée Frédéric Emile" is highly prized by connoisseurs and collectors. Pair With: Gourmet foods, quality fish, caviar, and fine white meats. Ageing Potential: The great "Cuvée Frédéric Emile" vintages age for twenty years and longer.

Wine EnthusiastA perfumed note of citrus peel and soft pine create a bracing nose that nonetheless suggests ripeness. The body is lithe and light, with a backdrop of stone and subtle nuttiness. With a little more air, the characteristic notes of mature Riesling appear: some lifted chamomile and candied orange peel, but only in their early stages. This is a wine of immense depth and deceptive lightness that has years of life ahead. Drink through 2030.

Wine SpectatorA lithe and lacy white, with mouthwatering acidity framing flavors of chopped apricot, lemon curd, fleur de sel and chamomile. The sleek finish echoes the rich flavor profile. Drink now through 2027. 4,000 cases made.
