    Trimbach's "Cuvee Frederic Emile" is sourced from the Gaisberg and Osterberg Grand Cru vineyards. Each year it's made it's held back for at least five years before release. This has been sitting in the Trimbach cellars ageing since its bottling in April 2009 and it shows in the incredible complexity and rich aromatics. Powerful and layered, the nose shows notes of dried peaches and apricots, roasted almonds, petrol and wet hay. The palate is bold and round with a savory nuttiness. There's still incredible acidity and the capacity to age further is evident. You could drink this now (because it's delicious) but you could hold this for several more years. An incredibly special bottle of Riesling to add to your collection.

    This wine is spectacular! How rare is it to be able to buy a reference point wine that is considered to be one of the greatest wines from a region for under $60? The Trimbach Riesling "Cuvee Frederic Emile" is one of Alsace's greatest wines and the 2008 might be the best rendition yet. This wine is loaded with petrol, iodine and citrus notes with a racy palate of crushed rocks, menthol, nut skin, white grapefruit and saline flavors. The energy here is off the charts with an incredibly long finish that almost vibrates on the palate because of the complexity and acidity that this beauty packs. I have already consumed 3 bottles of this beautiful elixir and intend to buy many more to enjoy over the warm weather days that lie ahead.
    Drink from 2018 to 2038
