About Domaine Weinbach
Domaine Weinbach was established in 1610 by the Capuchin monks who also gave their name to the domaine's most prized vineyard, Clos des Capucins. The estate itself got the name Weinbach--which literally translates to "wine brook"--from a little stream that trickles through the property.

($66; from 62-year-old vines on the midslope) Pale yellow. Powerful stony minerality lifts the aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and citrus rind. Juicy, high-pitched and penetrating, with the powerful mineral character stimulating the salivary glands. This has strong acidity (actually the highest here since '96, notes Laurence Faller) but a touch of sweetness gives it near-perfect balance and prevents it from coming off as hard. The long finish throws off hints of minerals, fresh herbs and mint. This was also bottled in 375 ml. and 1.5 liter format.
