About this Item

1989 Quintessence De Grains Noble
1 (1 x 1) 375ml

Domaine Weinbach is based in Kaysersberg and is one of the star domaines of Alsace. The estate was once the site of a Capuchin monastery and has been in the Faller family since 1898. Current owner, Catherine Faller is committed to producing exceptional wines that capture the essence of the unique terroirs of the region.

Quintessence de Grains Nobles (QGN) is a rare and highly prestigious classification, indicating a wine made from grapes that have been significantly affected by noble rot. This results in intensely sweet and concentrated wines with remarkable complexity and aging potential.

Critics Ratings

‘The 1989 Gewurztraminer Selection de Grains Nobles has leafy/minty, apricot, fruit cake, dried and candied fruit aromas, with some spicy/white pepper aromas. Highly elegant, intense, and sweet but elegant and balanced, the wine is very powerful, intense, rich, long, very complex, and with strength and length. A fiery SGN. 2015-2040.’ - Stephen Tanzer, Wine Advocate, 95/100
