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

96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010

($199; for 375 ml.; 9.5% alcohol, 207 g/l r.s. and 8.5 grams of acidity) Medium gold. Exhilarating high-toned aromas of apricot, resin, caraway seed and honey. Impossibly thick and opulent, but with superb inner-palate energy and lift for the variety. Pure chewy botrytis has no doubt contributed to the concentration of sugars and acids. In sheer verve, this puts its 2006 Quintessence predecessor to shame. Exciting, tactile wine with great saline persistence.
