Product description
95 Points - James Suckling

A fabulous wine with spice, mineral, salt and dried fruits. Hints of pear and dried apple too. Full and layered with great depth and power. Salty. Limestone and degraded fossilized seashells.

93 Points - Vinous

White peach and mint aromas are complicated by delicate herbs and chlorophyll on the enticing nose. Intensely flavoured and deep, conveying a saline freshness to the stone fruit and herb flavours. Finishes pliant and long, with firm minerality and a suggestion of gingery spices.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From the south and south-east facing Ribeauvillé grands crus Geisberg and Osterberg with low-yielding vines averaging 45 years old, the Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile displays a deep, complex and very elegant bouquet of ripe, rather tropical fruit aromas along with some floral flavours. Full-bodied, juicy, round and elegant on the palate, this mineral-laced and well-structured wine indicates a firm but ripe acidity and a lingering salinity as well as an impressively pure and mineral length. Powerful and with great aging potential.
