The 2008 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is now in the market and readers shouldn't miss seeking it out. This is a gorgeously matured dry Riesling classic from Ribeauvillé that drinks perfectly today and pairs with many kind of dishes. The wine has an intense citrus color and opens with a very clear, deep, dense and aromatic bouquet of dried fruits along with herbal and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, pure and elegant, yet complex and mineral on the palate, this is a silky textured but well-structured dry Riesling with intense and persistent fruit, fine tannins and lingering salinity. Bottled April 2009, this is a great dry Riesling blend from the Grands Crus Geisberg and Osterberg. Drink: 2017-2038 (Jul17)
96 points | Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

Although not labelled Grand Cru, Frederic Emile is a blend of the Grand Cru vineyards 'Geisberg' and 'Osterberg' which overlook the winery. These vineyards averaging 45 years in age create a dry and powerful Riesling, underlined by a mineral note and firm ripe acidity. Frederic Emilie has long been the standard for Alsatian Riesling.
