14 May The next Frederic Emile vintage will be… 2009 !
We have produced a superb 2008. 2008 is a bit like 2007: the wine will need more time to be ready. Frederic Emile 2008 is still tight and closed, when 2009 is singing already much more !
The Wine Spectator just released their “Insider”, where they list the 40 wines at 90-plus points which are the most exciting right now. We have the pleasure to see our Frederic Emile 2009 in it with 92 Points.
Still young, of course, Freddie 2009 has its life if front of it, at least 20 more years. But it’s already very attractive !
So to make it short, for Frederic Emile and Clos Ste Hune Rieslings,
– Latest release is 2007,
– next release is 2009.
– In 2015 or later, we will launch the 2008s.
