When you have a really good Riesling in your glass there is nothing else to wish for. And a much better Riesling than this Cuvée Sainte Catherine 1994 from Domaine Weinbach could hardly be found. A good Riesling has an extreme ageing ability and here it was really worth it to be patient and wait.
The nose is a very pure Riesling fruit dominated by zesty lemon and grapefruit. There is a hint of sweetness on the nose that you find again in the powerful and almost fat taste. At the same time the taste is razor sharp and steely. And also juicy and powerful with a really long, dense finish with a note of honey at the end. But no description can do the wine justice. As I said, a Riesling at its best.
Price for a young Cuvée Sainte Catherine is approx. 60-70 euros.
