The Trimbachcuvée Riesling " Frédéric Emile" 2009 is very charming and offers a wine of beautiful depth with an aromatic intensity and a frank sensation of minerality. This gastronomic Riesling was born in a vintage qualified as " grand" - which enjoys the accompaniment to noble fishes - and shows a great richness on the mouth. The whole is supported by a frank acidity that confers it nervosity and freshness. The finish enjoys a good length and the whole expresses finesse.

Wine Advocate-Parker : Citrus zest, fruit pit, huckleberry, and white pepper lend Trimbach's 2009 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile an aromatic piquancy and tactile bite that - allied to an oily texture - might pull a bit too much in a bitter direction were it not for a satisfying and far from vintage-typical abundance of exuberantly juicy lime, tangerine, and kiwi. A high-toned aura of pit fruit distillate hovers over the entire performance. Crushed stone and alkaline mineral notes add depth to an invigoratingly and tenaciously lingering finish. This ought to perform admirably in the classic Frederic Emile role for at least 12-15 years. (Incidentally, it's bone dry, at 13.5% alcohol.)
