This prestige cuvée is named after the man who started this Alsace wine dynasty, now in the hands of the 13th generation. Always a near-peerless Riesling, this new release is bone dry, structured and elegant, with savoury, nutty, autumnal notes and tangy citrus acidity. It's poised, powerful, complex and concentrated, with a seam of brisk yuzu-like acidity to complement the creamy nougat notes. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030. (TG)
The 2008 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is now in the market and readers shouldn't miss seeking it out. This is a gorgeously matured dry Riesling classic from Ribeauvillé that drinks perfectly today and pairs with many kind of dishes. The wine has an intense citrus color and opens with a very clear, deep, dense and aromatic bouquet of dried fruits along with herbal and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, pure and elegant, yet complex and mineral on the palate, this is a silky textured but well-structured dry Riesling with intense and persistent fruit, fine tannins and lingering salinity. Bottled April 2009, this is a great dry Riesling blend from the Grands Crus Geisberg and Osterberg. (SR)
A perfumed note of citrus peel and soft pine create a bracing nose that nonetheless suggests ripeness. The body is lithe and light, with a backdrop of stone and subtle nuttiness. With a little more air, the characteristic notes of mature Riesling appear: some lifted chamomile and candied orange peel, but only in their early stages. This is a wine of immense depth and deceptive lightness that has years of life ahead. Drink through 2030. (AK)
This is very deep and dense with oyster shell, sliced pear and apple character. Full-bodied, tight and fresh. Wonderful finish. Wow. Coming out next year.
Bright straw-green. Aromas of lemon zest, menthol, crushed stone and saline oyster shell, plus a hint of musk. Concentrated and rich, with strong crushed rock and smoky, flinty nuances complementing nectarine, apple and pear flavors. Closes very long and powerful, with terrific energy and inner-mouth perfume, suggesting that there's even more ahead for this beauty. (ID)
A lithe and lacy white, with mouthwatering acidity framing flavors of chopped apricot, lemon curd, fleur de sel and chamomile. The sleek finish echoes the rich flavor profile. Drink now through 2027. (AN)
