Exceptional Wines > THE DOMAINE WEINBACH'S RIESLINGS

The Domaine's Riesling wines have a fine and delicate fruitiness, they are racy, nervy, dry but at the same time they are mature and long on the palate. Riesling is such a prestigious grape variety that it is considered as the king of Alsace wines. It holds a special place in our vineyards and in our hearts. The Schlossberg soil magnifies its expression, the different plots give birth to different cuvées. They harmonize marvellously with fish (cooked or raw), shellfish and seafood, and choucroute (a typical Alsacian dish made of cabbage and sausage). Of course, they go well with coq au vin as with some white meat dishes, not forgetting goat cheese.

Riesling Cuvée Théo Origins: Clos des Capucins. The Riesling Cuvée Théo is lively, it has body and finesse. It is lovely served with all kind of fish dishes.

This cuvée is superb with fish en sauce, lobster and some poultry dishes.

"L'Inédit" ("the original one") is from the most beautiful plots. It is only produced when Riesling reaches an exceptional maturity. This choice cuvée is suave, delicate, and wonderful on its own, or with a lobster, or even with scallops.
