- 2003 Domaine Weinbach Riesling Schlossberg Cuvée Ste. Catherine - France, Alsace, Haut Rhin, Alsace Grand Cru AOC (5/14/2006)
The colour was golden (too much heat). The nose was voluptious (too much heat). The palate was enormous (too much heat). Where be the minerality, the harmony, the elegance? Ok, to be fair, it did have a nice aftertaste: long, dry, savoury, just a bit too powerful to be elegant. I wanted fruit, not flat fruit juice. But this slowly grew on me. What did the trick? I started to think of this as unoaked Chardonnay (due to the smooth texture on the palate) not as Riesling. Strange wine. It did keep up my interest for sure, but I won't be going out for more.
