Just a subtle note of fresh lemon zest appears on this wine's tender nose. The palate comes in delicately, filling the senses with lemon scent while the body remains toned and taut, as though it were a sublimation of the stone from which it sprang. It has power and citrus energy, despite its lithe nature. A delicious, bone-dry contradiction, the wine will evolve for many years.
From old vines in the heart of the cru, the 2019 Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling Cuvée Ste. Catherine offers a deep, intense and substantial, flinty/smoky and mineral-rich bouquet with iodine aromas. Rich but refined and very elegant on the palate, this is a textured and lush Schlossberg with lingering salinity, whereas the richness, power and intensity is captured by fine tannins. The 2019 is an impressive Schlossberg that's still a bit edgy and will need some years of bottle age to gain even more finesse.
The 2020 Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling Cuvée Ste. Catherine is deep, pure and intense on the nose, but at the same time, it's so charmingly elegant and fruity that it's really irresistible. Tropical fruit aromas are more discreet here than in the regular Schlossberg, and the complexity with iodine, mineral aromas is revealed only on the second and third nose. On the palate, this is a stimulating, pure, fresh and playful, salty or sappy Cuvée Ste Catherine that has great finesse and charm but perhaps less tannin tension than the 2019.

Domaine Weinbach is situated at the foot of the Schlossberg hill in Alsace and is named after a small stream, ‘Wine Brook’, that runs through the Estate. Founded in 1612 by Capuchin monks and then taken over by the Faller brothers in 1898, it is now in the hands of Catherine Faller and her son Théo who produce some of the country’s finest wines.

I visit a lot of wine estates, but this is one visit I will remember for a long time. Weinbach, based in Kientzheim, is one of the star domaines of Alsace.Jamie Goode, wineanorak.com

Domaine Weinbach farms biodynamically and hand harvest all of the crop with a view to quality over quantity. Each vineyard has its own specific terroir, which along with the other unique characteristics of grape and vintage, shimmer through these elegant and sophisticated wines thanks to their ageing in large old oak foudres.

Catherine and Théo grow a variety of grapes within the estate - Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner - but it is Riesling that is the king of Alsace wine and at the hearts of the Faller family. The Domaine owns 8 hectares of Riesling vineyards and they were among the first in Alsace to receive Grand Cru status in 1975.

On a base of granite rocks, the soils are brown, slightly acidic, and pebbly. The Schlossberg’s steep, south-facing slopes ensure exposure to optimal sunshine. The soils are very well drained and warm up very rapidly producing delicate fruit with a bouquet of great finesse.

I have already nailed my colours to the mast by listing Domaine Weinbach in my 100 Most Iconic Wine Estates book. I am always absolutely mesmerised by the thrilling wines from this Domaine.” Matthew Jukes
