97 points "97 rating. Medium-yellowish color. Incredibly complex and compelling nose is laden with honey, petrol, and spice. Follows through brilliantly on the palate with a waxy character and the influence of plenty of botrytised grapes. There is perfect balance between the ripe peach fruit and solid acidity; plenty of spine and attack, with everything in harmony. Very long, spicy finish. Simply superb wine, easily the best of the three vintages of Clos Windsbuhl. From Wine Spectator: A powerful, flamboyant white, this is lush and exotic in texture and flavor, sporting apricot, warm brioche, butter and mineral aromas and flavors, all supported by a lively structure and a hint of astringency on the finish. A wine for rich food. Best from 2005 through 2008. 280 cases made. (Aug 31, 2003) 94 points " Best 2008-2011
