 Tasted by dssmith on 2/15/2012 & rated 92 points: Lovely, rich. It might be me, but I can not differentiate it from the usual bottlling of Weinbach Cuvee Saint Catherine. I am however new to wines of the Alsace (3025 views)
 Tasted by Tom Schepers on 1/23/2012 & rated 91 points: Veel materie, in afdronk mooi verweven mineraliteit en zuren. (3019 views)
 Tasted by alanr on 7/22/2011 & rated 94 points: Stunning. Touch of sweetness, though perhaps less RS than in many vintages, deep minerality, blazing acidity, complexity and interest abound. Great now, and should develop nicely for quite a few years. (3392 views)

 Tasted by hadwin on 10/12/2010 & rated 90 points: Domaine Weinbach (Cellar Door): Fragrant, rich, complex nose. Very intense and was beautifully described as having “a Baroque approach and a Gothic finish”. Stone fruit nose, very long with exceptional fruit intensity. (2002 views)
 Tasted by tendring on 10/12/2010 & rated 94 points: WES Tour of Alsace - Domaine Weinbach: Wonderful delicate nose.
Baroque mid palate and gothic finish, fantastic length. (2362 views)

Domaine Weinbach

Producer website | producer profile on thewinedoctor.com.

The Quintessence de Grains Nobles wines are extremely rare, nectar of nectars. They are produced in tiny quantities in only a few vintages. The word Quintessence was first coined by Domaine Weinbach to be used to describe this sumptuous cuvée of the 1983 vintage. Domaine Weinbach received official designation as organic and biodynamic in 2010.
