    Winemaker's Notes:

    Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is not produced every year, only when the Trimbach Family believes that the quality of the grapes is high enough to give birth to this wine. All the growing season was perfect during this vintage and the grapes were picked at very good quality level, at 13.0% natural potential alcohol. Thanks to the beautiful and constant air draft coming from the deep valley just behind Ribeauvillé, the grapes were picked ripe and in very healthy conditions. This Riesling is a text-book dry "Frédéric Emile", classic from the best terroirs of Ribeauvillé, which needs 5 years to blossom and then will continue to develop for another 20 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The superbly-concentrated 2002 Riesling Frederic Emile is now on the market – still a touch austere, but with strikingly refined complexity, juicy and penetrating if relatively spare and restrained.

    The superbly-concentrated 2002 Riesling Frederic Emile is now on the market – still a touch austere, but with strikingly refined complexity and sheer mineral mass. Broth-like carnal and chalky traits here put one in mind of Chablis. Here is a wine to strain through your teeth, and one possessed of vivacious, ripe acids, with lemon, grapefruit and faintly bitter black fruit notes over a foundation of chalk, leading to a long, juicy finish. Give this another year in your cellar and for it to be worth following for at least another decade thereafter.
