Lively straw. Aromas of lime, chamomile, celery and pear skin. Crisp, fresh and juicy with a lemony mineral sheen to the orchard fruit and sweet herbal flavors. Medium-long on the savory aftertaste. Not the most concentrated Cuvée Théo I have ever tried, but lovely and full of early appeal; this is another very good Théo (following the 2016, which was also a major success), after a few years of less than impressive vintages.

The Cuvée Théo bottling of Riesling from Domaine Weinbach hails from the estate’s monopole vintage of the Clos des Capucins in Kayserberg. Like all of the Weinbach vineyards, the Clos des Capucins is farmed biodynamically today and the Cuvée Théo is fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in old fuders. The 2017 version is an excellent young wine, offering up a very promising nose of grapefruit, tart orange, a complex base of soil tones, citrus peel and a touch of musky floral tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is broad-shouldered, crisp, full-bodied and focused, with excellent mid-palate depth, snappy acids and fine length and grip on the complex finish. There is just a whisper of backend residual sweetness here, which I am sure was considered preferable to allowing the alcohol to climb above its listed thirteen percent octane. Good juice. 2019-2030+.
The 2017 Alsace Riesling Cuvée Theo is from the Clos and from young vines in the Grand Cru Schlossberg. The 2017 offers a nose of lime blossom and is intense and fresh but structured on the palate, with a long and intense finish with good salinity. Tasted October 2018. (SR)
