Wine Advocate 90 points - Both brashly citric and tropical in its allusions to pink grapefruit and pineapple, the Weinbach 2010 Riesling Cuvee Sainte Catherine delivers invigorating tartness and sizzle balanced by discreet sweetness and a substantial sense of sheer extract. Peach and Persian melon well up lusciously, the more so as it takes on air. There is some of the same somehow crystalline sense of mineral impingement as accrued to the corresponding Schlossberg bottling, leading to an invigorating, brown-spiced, faintly grainy but satisfyingly juicy finish. Given the tiny size of the crop and the challenge to ripening it, the Fallers elected not to produce a -l’Inedit- bottling of Schlossberg Sainte Catherine, but some lightly botrytized material that would ordinarily have gone into that offering instead found its way into this Sainte Catherine bottling, which helps account for its zesty piquancy. I suspect that it will be best enjoyed by 2025. (Aug 2014)

Producer
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.
