Wine Advocate 88 points - Already with Weinbach’s intro-level 2009 Riesling Reserve Personnelle we are at 14% alcohol (reflecting, notes Catherine Faller, the stress placed on younger vines), which when combined with low acid and a hint of overripe fruits does little to entice, whereas Weinbach’s 2009 Riesling Cuvee Theo - at the same 14% alcohol - preserves an attractive core of primary juiciness and a sense of cut. Muscat- or Sauvignon-like notes of sage, boxwood, and fresh lime migrate to a broad, apple- and peach-saturated palate, while the bitterness of herbal concentrates and lime peel adds to the sense of invigoration projected in the finish. Drink this over the next 2-3 years, lest its bitterness and alcohol become at all problematic. (May 2011)

At the foot of the majestic Schlossberg hill in Alsace stands one of the finest estates in all of France. Domaine Weinbach is run with consummate skill and total dedication by Colette Faller and her two daughters, Catherine and Laurence. In the words of Robert Parker, “Colette and her daughter Laurence...pushed Weinbach to the pinnacle of Alsaces qualitative pyramid. Domaine Weinbach was established by the Order of Capuchin monks in 1612. The “Clos des Capuchins vineyard surrounds the domaine; the prestigious “Schlossberg vineyard (the first terroir in Alsace to receive the status of Grand Cru), the Grand Cru “Furstentum, and the adjacent “Altenbourg vineyard rise above the clos. The domaine has 62 acres of vineyards in the heart of Kayserbergs hills and valleys. Weinbach produces richly concentrated, fragrant dry Rieslings, for which the Grand Cru Schlossberg vineyard is particularly well-situated. Ranging from the delicate Reserve Personelle, to the intense, dry Cuvee Theo, the elegant, very dry, very fine Schlossberg, the rich and fruity Cuvee Ste. Catherine, to the majestic and full-bodied Grand Cru Schlossberg Cuvee Ste. Catherine, each Riesling is distinctive. The rich, rose-scented, spicy Gewurztraminers from Domaine Weinbach are among the finest in the world. Ranging in style from the slightly sweet, rich and powerful Altenbourg Cuvee Laurence, to the stunning, full-bodied, off-dry Grand Cru Furstentum Cuvee Laurence, these are rich yet elegant wines with great aromatic complexity.
