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.
95 Points - James Suckling
A unusually peachy pinot gris with aromas of jasmine and floral honey, making it seem a lot lighter than it really is. This is all thanks to the fresh acidity and just a hint of sweetness. A lovely, long and bright mineral finish. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.
92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Not produced every year, the 2017 Pinot Gris Cuvée Ste Catherine is very intense in its aromatics. Lush and intense on the palate, this is a full-bodied, rich and sweet but structured Pinot with lingering salinity.
90 Points - Wine Spectator
A silky, medium-bodied white, with juicy acidity and a pretty mix of chopped apple, slivered almond, peach skin and ground ginger. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2027. 335 cases made.
