Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 92.7 pts. and median of 93 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Vini Ciclismo on 3/23/2015 & rated 93 points: Very pale straw.
Ripe fruits, melon, pear, peach and a little honeysuckle. Very refined and pure.
Velvety, medium weight. Highly focussed but with an extremely smooth entry and lengthy finish. The acidity is slightly hidden by the fullness and depth of fruit plus a fraction of residual sugar. Perfect ripe fruits, lovely minerality and a smooth creamy finish. Not a blockbuster at all, but drinks beautifully. (272 views)
 Tasted by pmk on 4/28/2014 & rated 93 points: Wine Spectator has it right: Sweet on entry, then more austere in the middle, with lively acidity lifting the concentrated peach nectar and quince flavors. an amzing wine for riesling lovers who understand Alsatian wines. (770 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 4/19/2013: Some Bottles from a Week in France; 4/14/2013-4/21/2013 (Paris, Northern Burgundy, Alsace): Richer and slightly sweeter than the Schlossberg Ste. Catherine but not necessarily better. (1604 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.
