This cuvée is not only a truly memorable expression of dry Riesling, it is simply a great white wine. Crafted from five plots of 60-plus-year vines in the heart of the Schlossberg slope where the sunny exposure and granite, mineral-rich soils give rise to a particularly deep, coiled wine. The wine takes its name from the day of Sainte Catherine, which falls on 25th November. Early vintages of the wine were picked on or around that date, drawing opulence and complexity from Alsace’s late Autumn. Today it can be picked as much as one month earlier, if not more. It does, however, remain the deepest and most profound dry Riesling of the Domaine. The 2016 is generous and stone fruited but with an intense sappy, spicy core. There are notes of yellow plums too. The balance is superb and the finish goes on and on.
