Domaine Weinbach has long been the estate of the Faller family, and most of its wines come from the Schlossberg, a granitic site of exceptional quality. Some of the Weinbach wines are lightly sweet, but this grand cru is fully dry. The nose is intensely elegant, with restrained citrus and apricot aromas and a whiff of smoke. The palate is fresh and taut, almost angular, and has spice and intensity. This pure and stylish Riesling is very concentrated, of course, and leads into a long, mineral finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040. (SB)
A juicy young dry Riesling that's easy to enjoy. If you look closer, you discover a pristine wine with fine peachy ripeness, great lemony freshness and serious minerality. Drink now through 2020.
Crystalline straw-green. Fresh lemon and jasmine aromas and flavors, plus hints of powdered rock. Energetic and focused, presenting an enticing multilayered quality. Bright and very saline on the long, vibrant finish (this strikes me as the most saline of all the wines I tried at the domaine this year). Made from vines grown at the top of the Schlossberg cru, which is characterized by stonier and poorer soils that usually give much more floral wines than the bottom part of the grand cru. There is less of this wine available than usual in this vintage; the estate declassified some of the grapes because the vines had suffered from water stress (not a rare occurrence at the top of the Schlossberg).
