Domaine Weinbach 2016 Cuvee Theo Riesling Alsace

This is more typical of the varietal on the nose than the Réserve Personelle and also has much more vibrant acidity. Sweet and sour with pungent citric lemon elements on the palate...almost lemon confit. To finish there are notes of butter and Granny Smith apple. It is ripe, yet not heavy or alcoholic. Pair this cuvée with fish dishes, salads, white meats, or poultry in light or white wine sauces.

Wine Spectator - 91 Points: "A racy, finely balanced Riesling, with crackling acidity and a minerally undertow driving the flavors of chopped yellow peach, slate, orchard blossom and ground ginger. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2026."

Vinous - 90 Points: "Pale straw-yellow. Lemon curd and white flowers on the nose and in the mouth. Boasts a refined, juicy mouthfeel and a floral finish that persists nicely. Very elegant and food-friendly Cuvée Théo, less powerful than the 2015 but with more lively cut and better clarity. Made with grapes grown mainly in the Clos and a few vineyards in Kientzheim. Strikes me as one of the more successful Cuvée Théo wines in years."
