94+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013

(13% alcohol; 9 g/l total acidity; 3 pH; 1 g/l residual sugar):  Pale straw-green.  Captivating, perfumed nose of yellow peach, fresh flowers, green apple, chlorophyll and talc; this is almost Mosel-like.  Then fresh and saline in the mouth; juicy and dense, with laser-like acidity and wonderful clarity and cut to its white stone fruit and apple flavors.  Finishes long and minerally, with a zesty edge that will leave your mouth watering.  A mesmerizing riesling.  This vintage features one of the lowest levels of residual sugar Trimbach has ever had in their Frédéric Emile.  Both of the Trimbach brothers feel that 2008 is the greatest vintage for the Frédéric Emile between 2005 and 2009, but I think that may be selling this wine short.  To my taste, this is one of the top ten Frédéric Emiles ever.
