    Cuvée Frédéric Émile is among the finest. Classic, structured and very very long with layers of minerality and texture. Clean and racy with bright citrus with a salty textural core of mid fruit and balanced finish with juicy layers of acidity. With fantastic freshness throughout, this wine will remain quite young for years to come.

    Region

    Stretching North-South for over 100 kilometers, Alsace is a wine region of variation which is typified by its 51 Grands Cru - from Altenberg to Zotzenberg, This is the only region in france whereby the wines are named after the variety and not the area. Typically producing white wines such as Riesling, Pinot Gris & Gewurtztraminer, although some reds are also produced. We like Domaine Bruno Sorg & Domaine Albert Boxler to name a couple.

    Aromas of cooked pear, apple and white pineapple follow through to a full body with incredible dryness and a mineral finish. White pepper and oyster shell too. This is so serious and unforgiving yet a phenomenon. Owners say it is the driest Fred ever. Drink now.

    Pale straw-green color. Quince, chlorophyll, licorice, menthol, jasmine and lemon verbena on a nose that's surprisingly perfumed for what was a very warm vintage. Fragrant, fresh and clean on entry, with harmonious but lively acidity lifting the lemon and lime flavors complicated by minty herbs, quinine and licorice. Minerally and penetrating on the long, saline finish, showing more flesh than some other Frédéric Emile vintages. The 2007 vintage began like 2011, with very early flowering and veraison dates, but 2007 was fresher overall. A few September rains had people fearing a repeat of 2006 (when inclement fall weather damaged harvest quality), and many producers pulled the trigger too soon, picking grapes that were not fully ripe.
