I've said it before and I'll say it again, Weinbach is one of the very finest Domaines for this grape variety in Alsace. The style stands out for its purity, balance and savouriness, and for not having any of the overt, confected notes that mark so many examples. Restrained focus is the theme. This was the wine that was formerly called "Cuvée Resérve", a name that has been dropped. Everything else is the same. It could be called the 'entry-level' Weinbach Gewürztraminer although there is really no such thing at this Domaine. From old vines in the Clos des Capucins, this is a Gewürz that is pitched at the drier end of the spectrum and the sandy soils promote both prettiness and perfume. Above all, it is super fine, with notes of peach, rose petals, five-spice, and musk. So pure, delicate and perfumed yet it will comfortably stand up to very intense food. The 2017 finished with under 20 grams residual.
