The 2008 Trimbach Cuvee Frederic Emile Riesling wine has a bright straw green. This Cuvee Frederic Emile Riesling wine has aromas of lemon zest, menthol, crushed stone and saline oyster shell, plus a hint of musk. The Riesling wine is concentrated and rich, with strong crushed rock and smoky, apple and pear flavors. The Trimbach Cuvee Frederic Emile Riesling wine is very long and powerful, with terrific energy and inner-mouth perfume, suggesting that there’s even more ahead for this beauty.
This prestige cuvée is named after the man who started this Alsace wine dynasty, now in the hands of the 13th generation. Produced since the 1960’s and named for an ancestor of the Trimbach family, the Cuvée Frédéric Émile is a blend of two grand cru sites which ie Geisburg and Osterburg.
