93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Outer quote mark The 2017 Alsace Grand Cru Schlossberg Riesling is clear and fresh on the nose, with Victoria pineapple aromas. Lush and aromatic on the palate, this is a very intense, structured, refined and salty Schlossberg with a firm (tannin) structure and long finish. Tasted October 2018.

The 2017 Riesling 'Schlossberg' from Domaine Weinbach is fairly ripe, coming in listed at 13.5 percent octane in this vintage, but it is fresh, vibrant and shows no signs of pushing the envelope in any manner. The bouquet offers up a deep and complex blend of apple, grapefruit, petrol, stony minerality, a bit of orange peel and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and very well-balanced, with a fine core of fruit, good soil signature, bright, zesty acids and a long, nascently complex, bone dry and quite classy finish.This is a lovely example of this superb terroir. 2019-2040+. 92+
Lively straw-green. Ripe pineapple, apricot, and melon on the nose and in the mouth are lifted by hints of crushed rocks and jasmine. Closes long and vibrant, with persistent reminders of powdered stones and jasmine. Very pure, mineral-accented wine that is still fairly closed but will undoubtedly blossom into something special. This wine is made from grapes picked in the top part of the Schlossberg, an area prone to water stress; recent hot, dry vintages such as 2017 have forced the estate to declassify many grapes every year, and therein lies part of the reason for this wine’s noteworthy quality level. About 8,000 bottles made.
