Overview of the Wine
At the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill in Alsace stands one of the finest estates in all of France. Weinbach produces richly concentrated, fragrant dry Rieslings, for which the Grand Cru Schlossberg vineyard is particularly well-situated. Ranging from the delicate Reserve Personelle, to the intense, dry Cuvée Théo, the elegant, very dry, very fine Schlossberg, the rich and fruity Cuvée Ste. Catherine, to the majestic and full-bodied Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvée Ste. Catherine, each Riesling is distinctive. The rich, rose-scented, spicy Gewurztraminers from Domaine Weinbach are among the finest in the world. Ranging in style from the slightly sweet, rich and powerful Altenbourg Cuvée Laurence, to the stunning, full-bodied, off-dry Grand Cru Furstentum Cuvée Laurence, these are rich yet elegant wines with great aromatic complexity.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Subtle and delicate nose of honey and exotic fruit, with smoky and buttery notes. Rich and well-structured on the palate, crisp and supple thanks to a lively acidity which frames the flavors. A dense, concentrated wine showing a very elegant and persistent finish.
Perfect accompaniment to a mushroom risotto, white meats, poultry, lamb, and duck. Pairs very well with grilled salmon and other oily fish as well as Asian orAsian-influenced cuisine and hard cheeses.
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
In this wine, a flash of freshly cut Williams pear shows befor the nose closes down again. The palate reveals gentle, rounded fruit and the kind of concentration that turns into elegance rather than power. With plenty of energy at the core, sun-ripened and upright, the wine remains finely chiseled. A freshness uncommon for 2018 pervades the pear notes and lets this shine. Drink by 2040. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW
