Domaine Weinbach

Schlossberg Alsace Grand Cru Riesling 2017

Lemon curd & jasmine on the nose. Tastes like white gummy bear in the best way possible. Medium body. Happy tension. Nice spice on the finish. Perfect for an early fall pairing with smoky pancetta, white bean & chard on toasty sourdough. — 11 days ago

Domaine Weinbach

Cuvée Théo Alsace Riesling 2016

Quite rich & creamy with ripe white peach, orchard apples, a bit of white flowers and tangerine zest. A underlying mineral note adds complexity. There was some naphtha at the beginning, too.
Nice creamy mouthfeel with bright, juicy acidity and a bit of slaty, steely minerality. This has impeccable balance and superb purity. Great long finish, too. A lovely wine.

Kaefferkopf Vieilles Vignes Alsace Grand Cru Le Riesling 2015

Quite exuberant & exotic with overripe lime, apple compote & stone fruit, some bay leaf, white pepper and speculatius aromas. On the palate surprisingly clean & crisp with great precision, juicy acidity and a mineral slaty backbone. This has an amazing electric tension, purity of fruit and a very long, spicy finish. A great wine. — 10 days ago
