Domaine Weinbach Schlossberg Grand Cru Quintessence de Grains Nobles / 2004 / 375mL
"[Laurence Faller] is one of the best winemakers in the world. She manages to capture the tiniest detail in her wines and they shine through their style, their precision of fruit, their elegance of texture and their amazing balance - they are faultless"
- Olivier Poussier, Revue de Vins de France
One of France's most distinguished wine Estates is also one of its most enjoyable and entertaining. Weinbach is universally regarded as one of the greatest producers of Alsace and therefore by proxy, one of the greatest 'aromatic' Domaine's in the world. Yet it is a domaine that remains incredibly grounded, refreshingly free from overarching self importance and pomposity.
The Late Harvest, Selections de Grains Nobles and Quintessence de Grains Nobles represent another expression of our beautiful soils, magnified by overmaturity and Botrytis.
They are exceptional wines, remarkable because of their great aromatical complexity, of their rare concentration and their perfect balance.
The Quintessences de Grains Nobles are extremely rare, nectar of nectars, they are tiny produces in only a few vintages. The word Quintessence was invented in Domaine Weinbach, it was used the first time to describe a sumptuous cuvée of the 1983 vintage.
