Critic Notes

The 2004 Riesling Frederic Emile needs time to open up; it is very intense and concentrated with spicy minerals, great purity and lemon flavors. Intense, round and mineral on the palate, this is a very fresh and mineral dry Riesling with structure and lots of salt, great purity, and with more finesse and purity than the corresponding Clos Ste Hune. The finish is long, fresh and very salty and reveals a lot of grip. Great wine. Oct 2015, www.robertparker.com

Score: 95-/100Stephan Reinhardt

Wonderful! Instant charm and complexity. Mature, honey, orange peel, cheese, spice - but a very slight oxidative note on the finish, so not for keeping much further? Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Grapefruit zest, chalk dust, truffle, sassafras and must inform the nose of the 2004 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile. Overtly chalky and palpably extract-rich, with illusive floral inner-mouth aromas, this penetrates with almost severe intensity, leaving the palate saturated with citrus and minerals and, frankly, a bit wrung-out. Don’t look for this wine to rebound for another couple of years –in fact, don’t look for it at all until 2009, when it will be released. The 2005 will almost certainly continue to taste better younger. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate February 2008
