Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2002

Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 750ml 2002     
Sku: 18667

The best-known of Trimbach's "Gold Label” wines, Frédéric Emile Riesling is the epitome of the family style: pure and complex fruit brought to life with vibrant, muscular acidity. Totally dry. While its breadth and freshness are immediately apparent when every new vintage is released, Frédéric Emile's true depth and power come to life only after several more years of bottle aging.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Feb 2008)
The superbly-concentrated 2002 Riesling Frederic Emile is now on the market – still a touch austere, but with strikingly refined complexi, juicy and penetrating if relatively spare and restrained.”

Wine maker notes
The soil at the Trimbach’s Frederic Emile vineyards in the town of Ribeauville, part of the Grands Crus Geisberg and Osterberg, is very stony limestone over a base of sandstone at 250 to 350 meters above sea level. The well-drained argilo-calcaire soil over a deep sandstone base supports vines that are approximately 45-years-old. The Trimbach Family picks the Riesling grapes as late as possible in order to achieve maximum ripeness which, in turn, gives optimum depth of flavor and complexity. The grapes are picked by hand 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 4 -5 weeks. The wine is not oak-aged as the Trimbachs believe that wood gives nothing to their wines, the salient characteristics of which are extreme purity and concentrated fruit. Bottling is early to preserve freshness and wines then bottle-aged before leaving the winery.

Food pairing
These wines are delightful alone or as an aperitif. They also pair beautifully with rich cheeses, caramelized fruit tarts, and entrees prepared in creamy sauces.
