2001 Riesling, Cuvée Frédéric-Emile, 375th Anniversary, Trimbach

Ribeauvillé, Haut-Rhin, Alsace

$120.00 per Bottle


9 Bottles




"Aromas of lemon, mint and caraway seed. Creamier and sweeter than the "regular" Frédéric Emile, with an almost exotic peachy ripeness and a strong spice character. This is wonderfully sweet and full, with considerable flesh on its bones. Finishes very long, fresh and tight, with the wine's strong underlying minerality making itself felt on the back end. I was shocked to be told that this wine was carrying only five grams of residual sugar. The impression of sweetness, according to Pierre Trimbach, is from the wine's huge dry extract."

"The virtues of the 2001 Trimbach Rieslings will by now be well known to readers, but in another year or two they will release a 2001 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile 375th Anniversary representing a small lot of late-picked Osterberg. Smelling of honey and herbal elixir, it offers a creamy texture, refined peach, honey and mint flavors, and a vivid sense of salt, chalk and wet stone minerality. This might ultimately approach the quality of the 2001 Clos Ste-Hune, and will be one to enjoy over a twenty year period, as despite its elegance it is uncannily concentrated (and, incidentally, despite its richness perfectly dry)." David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #175

"Starts austerely, but displays richness on the palate, with apple and quince notes. Reserved in a dry style that needs time to open. Good length." Wine Spectator

"A special selection from within the Osterberg vineyard to celebrate the Trimbach house's 375th anniversary that is just about to be launched. This is a very special wine for lovers of Riesling, bottled in Apr 2002 like the regular 2001. Very obviously riper than the regular CFE 2001 - much denser. Wonderfully deep and rich, finishing full and opulent, although so fine too. Very exotic nose has a rather beguiling hint of curry spice(!) on the nose." JancisRobinson.com
