jamessuckling.com, 95 points: Tight and poised with sliced apples, pears and mineral undertones. Medium body. Dry and fruity. Zingy and bright. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
jamessuckling.com, 98 points: A lot of roasted citrus fruits, but the mineral character is stronger. The mineral component keeps the reins in its hand, driving the wine on to a very straight path and keeping it there in spite of higher alcohol (just...
jamessuckling.com, 96 points: Still rather closed with only hints of candied citrus and toast on the nose, but this has the concentration and profundity of a top grand cru. Tightly wound and so, it needs some time to unfurl. But it already has a...
Wine Spectator, 95 points: A vibrant white, crackling with a light saber of acidity that defines the flavors of nectarine, melon, grated ginger and star anise, revealing a tangy, saline-tinged undertow. Finely knit and long, with the fruit and...

Wine Spectator, 93 points: Bright and focused, with bracing acidity and a strong undercurrent of saline minerality. Flavors of quince, green pear, lemon verbena and dried apricot wrap around the minerally core, but it takes hold again on the finish...
jamessuckling.com, 96 points: Very tight, minerally and reduced on the nose. Shows hints of flint and white pepper. Full-bodied, very dry and layered with some phenolic tension. It's so tight and holding back. Needs two or three years now.

jamessuckling.com, 97 points: Very cool, delicate and floral with daring elegance. Not the most powerful wine of this ripe vintage, but extremely refined. A very long finish that is marked by chalky minerality. The way that it literally blossoms in...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96 points: 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...
