Wine Advocate-Parker :
Lilac, fresh lime and alkaline notes in the nose of Trimbach's 2008 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile are harbingers of a rivetingly bright, seemingly mineral-suffused palate that also features a greenhouse like inner-mouth profusion of floral and leafy scents and the stimulating bite of lime peel and huckleberry. Like its lesser siblings, this boasts an almost severe sense of concentration as well as prominent piquancy and citricity, all of which combine for a somewhat austere impression that in this instance argues for simply setting bottles aside for 5-7 years before beginning to track and savor the wine for the decade following. As usual, the winery itself does its part to guarantee restraint, since this vintage of Frederic Emile will not be released any earlier than 2013. The sheer persistence and penetration of this bottling go well beyond that of the corresponding reserve bottling, and given the track record for Frederic Emile one can also anticipate considerably more complexity with time.
