This 2001 Riesling Frederic Emile Selection de Grains Nobles was harvested during the last possible days (before heavy rain) in early November. Apple jelly and plum preserve, honey and almost Gewurztraminer-like brown spices inform the nose. Surprisingly fat and broad on the palate for a Riesling, its ample acidity hidden, and with enormous concentration of baked apple, plum paste, malt, brown spices, and honey that never threatens to turn cloying or heavy. It is probably hiding more than it is revealing today. Only 1,800 bottles were produced, and hopefully few will be opened before 2020. The Geisberg is seldom conducive to noble rot due to its ventilation, but in both 2000 and 2001 it was possible to pick S.G.N. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate February 2008
The Trimbach estate was established in 1626 and is now being run by the 12th generation of the family, Pierre and Jean. Riesling Cuvée Frederic Emile is the signature wine of the family. It is a dry Riesling with lots of mineral character and a great ageing potential. The jewel in Trimbach's crown is the Clos Ste Hune vineyard, which is located just outside Hunawihr. Riesling Clos Ste Hune is widely recognised as one of the finest expressions of Alsace Riesling.
