Tasting Notes

Vinous – 89+

(12.8% alcohol; 8.2 g/l total acidity; 3.11 pH; 3.5 g/l residual sugar): Golden yellow color. Vegetal notes (asparagus, artichoke) emerge from a deep nose that hints at peach and apricot; with aeration, fresh citrus and menthol nuances appear. Sweet and bright on entry, with almost tooth-rattling acidity, then increasingly bitter and sharp in the middle, with rich tropical fruit flavors complicated by quinine and ginger. The clean, long finish offers repeating notes of yellow peach and pineapple. My bottle developed more complexity with aeration: I liked this much better two hours after it had been poured, so decanting would seem to be a good idea (some other bottles I have had have performed better than this one). The 1995 was a cooler vintage, and Jean Trimbach feels the wine is still currently folded in on itself. But although it’s a potentially outstanding riesling, I prefer the Clos Ste. Hune in this vintage. [Ian D’Agata, 09/01/2013]

JancisRobinson.com – 17.0

Beginning to unfurl. Definitely less concentrated than the 1998 or 1997. Quite floral and delicate wine produced from this difficult, rainy vintage. Clean, lime flavours. Relatively lean but certainly great long finish. [27/01/2003]

Anticipated maturity: 2005-2009

Robert Parker – 92

The beguiling 1995 Riesling Frederic-Emile exhibits a profound nose of minerals, chalk, granite, and citrus fruits that leads to a highly-nuanced, medium-to-full-bodied character. Massively powerful layers of rocks, pears, candied limes, and minerals are found in this rich, fabulously dense offering. Additionally, it is focused, hugely concentrated, and possesses an exceptionally long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012. Importer: Seagram Chateau & Estate Wines Company, New York, NY; tel (212) 572-7725. [Pierre Rovani, 01/06/1999]

Anticipated maturity: 2002-2012
