2001 Riesling Frédéric Emile 375ème Anniversaire

  • JG94+
  • NM93

Around 2007, Trimbach released a special bottling of 2001 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile to honor the firm's 375th anniversary. The regular Frédéric Emile is a blend of Osterberg and Geisberg, while the anniversary release is pure Osterberg. With 2001 a great Riesling vintage for Alsace, the stars really aligned for Trimbach's celebration.

Reviewing this special bottling in 2014, John Gilman wrote: "95 rating ... This cuvée started out life more reserved in profile than the regular 2001 Cuvée Frédéric Émile, but has blossomed beautifully with aging and is a great example of this consistently excellent wine. The bouquet is deep, complex and shows off all the fireworks of a Cuvée Fred at its peak, wafting from the glass in a deep and classic blend of apple, petrol, salty soil tones, orange peel, pink grapefruit and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a rock solid core, ripe, perfectly-integrated acids, excellent focus and grip and a very, very long, complex and zesty finish. (Drink between 2014-2025)"
