2011 Trimbach Riesling 2011 Trimbach Riesling
Bright straw. Aromas of lime, pear and jasmine. Fresh on entry, then fatter and plumper in the middle but nicely aromatic, very much in the style of the vintage. The lemony finish is clean and persistent. Rated 88. ‑ Ian D'Agata, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar November/December 2012

2005 Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2005 Trimbach Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Émile

The 2005 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile follows the lead of the "reserve" bottling in offering palpable extract yet elegance and refinement. Peach, apricot, apricot kernel, lime, and pungent floral notes in the nose lead to a juicy mouthful of citrus and pit fruit with further invigoration added by accents of salt, huckleberry and toasted pumpkin seeds. Blazingly bright in its citricity and palate-staining in its fruit, nut, and mineral intensity, this displays an amazing tiny-berry concentration and utmost clarity when one considers its having been rained on early in October – tribute to an impeccable viticultural regime as well as the breezy location (on the Osterberg) of these vines. It won’t be released until 2010, by which time it can be expected to have "shut down" and re-opened, as well as – I hasten to add – to promise further richness and complexity over the following 12-15 years. Rated 93. ‑ David Schildknecht, Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s The Wine Advocate Issue 175, February 2008

Pale color. Complex nose combines dusty stone, quinine and lime blossom, with a note of white grapefruit emerging with aeration. Began quite tight and citric, but with time in the glass this showed a creamy texture without any loss of inner-palate energy. Almost painfully brisk on the finish. I'd expect a wine like this to go into a shell within the next year or so. Rated 91(+?). ‑ Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar July/August 2007
