91? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(12.8% alcohol; 8.2 g/l total acidity; 3.04 pH; 6 g/l residual sugar):  Pale straw-green.  Delicate nose offers notes of fresh herbs (oregano, rosemary), green apple, lime and pear, with the green edge increasing with aeration.  Then richer and fresher on the palate, showing lovely balance and precise minerality to the rich apple and apricot flavors.  This struck me as much more complex and interesting on the palate than the on nose.  Finishes long and clean, with a hint of peppery herbs.  Harvested on October 28th, the day before a deluge.  "We were lucky," noted Jean Trimbach.  Although October 28 is a late harvest date for this wine, Jean pointed out that the Cuvée Frédéric Emile is always the latest harvested of all Trimbach's wines.
