Winemaker Notes

Deep golden, vibrant and reflective. Lush ripe white peaches with a hint of beeswax honey. Dense and intense flavors of burnt orange peel, lemon zest, and stone fruits with subtle elements of minerality and honeycomb.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Trimbach 2006 Riesling Cuvee Frederic Emile displays almost cinnamon-like as well as gingery sweet spicy pungency, a legacy of advanced ripeness and a touch of botrytis. Ripe strawberry, blood orange, and pink grapefruit add to the rather decadent allure here, following on an opulent palate, whose subtly oiliness of texture and honeyed cast give further testimony to noble rot. Yet for all of its far-gone, exotic ripeness, there is persistent refreshment here and a sense of lift rather than weight. A strikingly long, succulent finish is touched with quinine and citrus rind bitterness.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
This shows the riper fruit character of 2006—baked apricot and apple, with hints of guava and dried papaya—but considerably more acidity then is typical for the vintage, resulting in a finely cut, lively white. A minerally base adds stony smoke and spice notes, gaining momentum toward the lingering finish of chamomile and honeycomb. Drink now through 2026.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
An aristocratic riesling, this layers its severely tight, earthen complexities with juicier, candied notes of tropical fruit. It hints at dried papaya, rich in the middle, very long in the finish. this is rich enough for foie gras.

Trimbach Maison Trimbach Winery Image

Since 1626, the Trimbach family has been promoting the history, exceptional terroirs and fine wines of Alsace. Maison Trimbach is located in Ribeauvillé, where today three generations work closely together. 

Day-to-day operations are handled personally by brothers Pierre and Jean Trimbach, representing the 12th generation. Bernard and Hubert Trimbach, the 11th generation (father and uncle, respectively, to Pierre and Jean) remain integrally involved. Anne, the eldest of the 13th generation, has just joined the family business. The Trimbachs have a purist vision. Across 12 generations, the family has always produced wines that are structured, long-lived, fruity, elegant and balanced: the celebrated Trimbach style. Bottles remain in the cellar for several years before reaching the marketplace, ensuring the wines are both ready to drink upon release but also hold great aging potential.

Pierre Trimbach (winemaker since 1979) was named one of the world’s Top Ten White Winemaker by Decanter Magazine in 2006. He was also named “Wine Personality of 2016” by Betthane & Desseauve Magazine and they score Cuvée Frederic Emile 2008 a rare 20/20.
