Reviews for 2004 Weinbach, Domaine Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg Quintessence de Grains Nobles

WS 97
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, July 2007
Shows precision balance between the intense beam of acidity and a range of honeyed fruit flavors including pineapple dried apricot and star fruit. Tightly wound now with a long lingering finish of apple and spice. Best... Shows precision balance between the intense beam of acidity and a range of honeyed fruit flavors including pineapple dried apricot and star fruit. Tightly wound now with a long lingering finish of apple and spice. Best from 2011 through 2040. 10 cases imported. -BS

Marzipan and candied pineapple on the nose. Wonderfully sweet and intense with continuing flavors of pineapple syrup and marzipan. Offers terrific incipient complexity and sublime acidity but this is a bit embryonic... Marzipan and candied pineapple on the nose. Wonderfully sweet and intense with continuing flavors of pineapple syrup and marzipan. Offers terrific incipient complexity and sublime acidity but this is a bit embryonic today. With higher residual sugar than the SGN this should be more concentrated but today that's not obvious. It will be interesting to compare these two wines 5 10 and 20 years down the road and I'd happily volunteer for this task.

A 2004 Riesling Schlossberg Quintessence de Grains Nobles is aptly named in view of its phenomenal - if embryonic - concentration. Candied citrus rind spiced watermelon rind marzipan licorice honey and herbal distillates... A 2004 Riesling Schlossberg Quintessence de Grains Nobles is aptly named in view of its phenomenal - if embryonic - concentration. Candied citrus rind spiced watermelon rind marzipan licorice honey and herbal distillates all waft from the glass. On the palate a pointed fresh citrus character is balanced against honey and suggestions of herbal liqueur. This finishes long lacy racy and refined for all of its sweetness missing the exciting complexity of its S.G.N. sibling today almost certainly just on account of its youth. It should go on for 25-30 years and I would probably not pull a cork for a decade. -David Schildknecht
