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. (96) STEPHAN REINHARDT

Bright straw-green. Aromas of lemon zest, menthol, crushed stone and saline oyster shell, plus a hint of musk. Concentrated and rich, with strong crushed rock and smoky, flinty nuances complementing nectarine, apple and pear flavors. Closes very long and powerful, with terrific energy and inner-mouth perfume, suggesting that there's even more ahead for this beauty. IAN D’AGATA, Vinous (tasted 2016)

This is very deep and dense with oyster shell, sliced pear and apple character. Full-bodied, tight and fresh. Wonderful finish. Wow. (95) STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com (tasted 2015)
