92 points "This integrates all its elements, with juicy citrus acidity highlighting the pretty orange blossom, star fruit, yellow peach and spice notes, followed by a lightly smoky finish. This has the weight for food, but it's delicious on its own. Drink now through 2020. 958 cases made."

89 points "In greatest possible contrast with his Clos Hauserer, Humbrecht’s 2007 Riesling Herrenweg de Turckheim was expressive early on in its evolution and is lovely for drinking over the next 5-7 years. It’s entirely dry, yet this year that meant running the alcohol up only as high as 13.5%, and the wine is still buoyant. Lime, fig, and apricot inform the nose and a juicy, lush palate, with licorice and cardamom nicely spicing a satisfyingly long finish."

92 points "Like an explosion in a flower shop, this exuberant white offers up harmonious scents of gardenias, carnations and white roses alongside lower tones of petrol and slate. It’s intense, flavorful and starting to show some development. Try with classic French fish preparations."
