Trimbach Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile 2007 / Clos St Hune 2009

Trimach Frederic Emile
"...arrow-like penetration and sharpness...formidable density; bracing salinity..."
  
With viticultural origins going back as far as 1626 this family owned estate produces some of the finest dry wines of Alsace. From prime sites based around the villages of Ribeauville and Hunawihr, the Trimbach family own 27 hectares of vineyards including 1.25 ha of Rosacker Grand Cru (which produces their most highly famed Clos St Hune Riesling) as well as parcels of Geisberg and Osterberg (blended to make the equally renowned Riesling cuvee Frederic Emile). 

Today we feature the new 2007 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile. With less than 1 grams of residual sugar and almost 8 grams of acidity this is the driest version of this wine ever produced. A classic in the making!

Trimbach Emile Label David Schildknecht, erobertparker.com: Citrus zest, fruit pit, huckleberry, and white pepper lend Trimbach's 2009 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile an aromatic piquancy and tactile bite that - allied to an oily texture - might pull a bit too much in a bitter direction were it not for a satisfying and far from vintage- typical abundance of exuberantly juicy lime, tangerine, and kiwi. A high-toned aura of pit fruit distillate hovers over the entire performance. Crushed stone and alkaline mineral notes add depth to an invigoratingly and tenaciously lingering finish. This ought to perform admirably in the classic Frederic Emile role for at least 12-15 years. (Incidentally, it's bone dry, at 13.5% alcohol). 92 Points

Trimbach Hune Label
 
The Rare Clos St Hune
9 Bottles available
  
Clos St Hune is Alsace's most famous wine. It is produced from the Rosacker vineyard and despite the fact it could be label as Grand Cru Rosacker the Trimbach's prefer to continue with the Clos St Hune label.
We offer the newly released 2009.
David Schildknecht, erobertparker.com: Carrying 14% alcohol with negligible residual sugar, Trimbach's 2009 Riesling Clos Ste-Hune leads with high-toned pear, kirsch, and almost bitingly piquant holly berry distillates. Huckleberry, holly, and fruit pit bitterness are well woven into a tight-grained, seamless fabric of fresh white peach, with further chalky and alkaline accents. The finish is a veritable rolling block of mineral and fruit distillate, boasting energy and grip, if also a bit of heat. I suspect that the Frederic Emile will retain an edge in elegance over this, which I would drink on the early side for a Ste-Hune, say over the next 10-12 years. 91 Points
