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.

Bright golden yellow. Slightly high-toned aromas of crystallized lemon peel, tangerine, mirabelle, honey and wild herbs, plus hints of toasty lees and brown spices. Broad and mouthfilling without coming across as heavy, but more exotic than the "regular" Schlossberg--less precise and stony today. This wine is presently a bit austere in its alcoholic power and will need to time in bottle to mellow and harmonize. I'd forget about it for at least seven or eight years.
