Cuvée Frédéric Emile Alsace Riesling 2008


The story about this wine for me is about the fragility of life. It was about a year ago that I last drank a bottle - in a little Japanese restaurant called BISSOH, in the heart of Beaune, among riesling and burg lovers, among people whom I regard as my family away from home. We were celebrating the life of a man, who I got to know only a couple months before and admittedly knew little about. But that didn't matter. We all bonded over wine, and he was a man of preposterous passion for it. What really got to me was how quick it all went from drinking the best wines with him to drinking the best wines for him. Hits really close to home.

I've decided upon this wine as my choice to start populating my cellar in Malaysia. Why? For one, it's to remember the life of Tino. Also, riesling's a little hard to come by in Malaysia... so thank God for Trimbach. But perhaps most importantly, it's so bloody delicious!

I love the 08's precision and focus. It smells of flowers, stone fruits, then flowers again, then straight up stone, herbs, almonds. The palate's just liquid rock. And the finish... Breathtaking. Waves of citrusy goodness. However, it needs time. The acid sticks out like a sore thumb at the moment. I reckon with a bit of laying down, it'll integrate right in. What a complete CFE it'll be then 😍

Alsace Riesling 2015

It would be unwise to underestimate the quality and complexity of Trimbach’s entry level wines, particularly the Riesling. Racy salt-preserved lemon, Granny Smith apple, orchard blossoms, ginger and shimmering minerality are what define this wine in addition to its petrol-forward personality. What it might lack in textural richness it more than compensates for with lovely freshness and kinetic energy on the palate. Outstanding vintage. (Kittens not included) — 11 days ago

Réserve Alsace Riesling 2011

Color : White
Wine estate : Trimbach
Designation : Alsace
Name : Riesling Réserve
Country : France
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : Staying in Alsace for 3 days, we make a small stop in Strasbourg and in a small restaurant next to the Cathedral and the edge of the Aar. To accompany a goose pâté and a local sauerkraut, we take a wine tasted at the estate 2 hours ago, a Riesling Reserve from Trimbach. A marvel with her golden dress and her fat tears. A petroled nose, white flowers and citrus. In the mouth, explosion of flavor with a final on the caramel. A wonderful discovery!
En séjour en Alsace pendant 3 jours, nous faisons une petite halte à Strasbourg et dans un petit restaurant à côté de la Cathédrale et au bord de l’Aar. Pour accompagner un pâté d’oies et une choucroute locale, nous prenons un vin dégusté au domaine 2h auparavant, un Riesling Réserve de chez Trimbach. Une merveille avec sa robe dorée et ses larmes grasses. Un nez pétrolé, fleurs blanche et d’agrumes. En bouche, explosion de saveur avec un final sur le caramel. Une magnifique découverte !
