Mathew Jukes in one of his Money Week columns described this domaine at the Margaux and D’Yquem of Alsace and it’s one of Robert Parker’s ten five star Alsace producers with its wines regularly being awarded 90+ points. We visited the Domaine in 2012 to select these wines (see here)

Domaine Weinbach was established in 1612 by Capuchin monks. It was acquired in 1898 by the Faller family who own it today. Amongst the Domaine’s holdings are vines in vineyards which have exceptional geological characteristics; granite on the Schlossberg (“which is home to some of Alsace’s most distinctively delicious Rieslings, notably those of … Doamine Winbach” Robert Parker); marly limestone on the great cru Furstentum and on Altenbourg which is just below the boundary of this grand cru (where the Gewurztraminer and the Tokay Pinot Gris blossom).

Domaine Weinbach started using biodynamical methods in 1998 on 8 out of 25 hectares. The other 17 hectares were cultivated organically. Since the 2005 vintage, all the Domaine's vineyards have been taken care of biodynamically.

This Gewurztraminer has a great nose, rose and lychee, a full mouth feel and a long finish.
