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.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2007

($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.

The long finish throws off hints of minerals, fresh herbs and mint. This was also bottled in 375 ml. and 1.5 liter format.
