Domaine Weinbach, also known as Clos des Capucins, is not only one of the best domaines in Alsace, its refined and concentrated white wines are even considered to be among the best in the world.
Grapes are picked by hand with very strict selection for perfect ripeness. In the vinification cellar, after an extremely slow and careful pressing of the grapes, a spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with wild (grape's own) yeasts takes place on old very large oak casks. The wines remain here until at least June or July to gradually reduce the fermentation in order to maximize the expression of authenticity and complexity. This entire process runs according to strict biological dynamic rules and regulations. .
The Schlossberg has an exceptional terroir and gives a very pure fruit expression. In the glass, the Riesling Schlossberg Grand Cru is golden-yellow in color. In the nose we distinguish expressive aromas of grapefruit, ripe pear and tobacco. The attack on the palate is fruit intense and elegant, broad and round. The Schlossberg combines its juicy, well-concentrated Riesling fruit with the mineral soul of Weinbach's granite cru terroir, ending with lemon flavors and salty notes. The finish is very long and complex; Both the salty mineral character of the granitic soil and the ripe fruit return here. This is an incredibly promising Riesling with a wonderful storage potential as befits a large Grandcru Riesling.
Delicious as an aperitif, oysters, lobster, sea fish such as sole and turbot, turkey and Bresse chicken with mushrooms, sushi and sashimi.
