Very attractive already, quite powerful nose. Full bodied wine with intensity,depth and beautiful mineral flavour. Rich, ripe acidity in the palate. Great personality and finesse. Full of charm already after nearly 4 years of bottle ageing.
Vinification Note :The grapes are always picked by hand as late as possible in order to achieve maximum ripeness and pressed very gently in a pneumatic press. The juice runs into the cellar by gravity and clarifies naturally prior to fermentation. The juice ferments in stainless steel at controlled temperature for 3-4 weeks. The wine is vinified to complete dryness. It is not oak-aged, the salient characteristics of which are extreme purity and concentrated fruit. Bottling is early to preserve freshness and wines are bottle-aged before leaving the winery. Cuve Frdric Emile Riesling needs 3 to 5 years to blossom and usually ages minimum 15 years.

"Honeysuckle, lime juice, great purity and vibrancy. Really energetic, some bitterness but mostly a panoply of Riesling typicality that really shows off. Great stony flair on the finish. Lots to enjoy." Richard Hemming, www.jancisrobinson.com, November 2011
"Pierre Trimbach is a rugged bloke somewhere between a rugby player and a police chief whose wines are eldish and dazzling. This is awesome wine that everyone should taste - harmonious, intensely bright and richly textured. Age it for 10 years or more" - Olly Smith, Mail on Sunday, 4th September 2011
