Tasting Notes:
tasted: January 18, 2013 , Irina Rabinovich
4.5 stars "Sweetness: sweet; "
rated: September 30, 2009 , Wine Spectator
91 points "This bright version is awash with textbook apricot, pear, honey and citrus notes. Racy acidity drives you to the finish, which lingers with hints of smoke and orange peel. Drink now through 2016. 467 cases made." Best 2010-2016

90 points "Noble botrytis elevated the sugars in Pinot Gris in 2007 to an extent that it did not in other varieties, says Humbrecht, and his 2007 Pinot Gris Herrenweg de Turckheim ended up with 15.6% alcohol and still – at 20 grams residual sugar - slightly sweet-tasting. Apricot, litchi, pineapple, candied ginger and orange rind, sauteed mushroom, and honey in the nose get folded into a butter-cream like palate, whose thickness and emerging caramel tone becomes almost toffee like in the wine’s brown-spiced, faintly warm finish. After a year in bottle, the heat here was still acceptably restrained, and there was even a slight sense of invigoration from citrus zest and tactile spice. You could try pairing this with equally rich, sweet dishes; you could just sip it on its own; or you could wait a decade for the sense of sweetness to diminish, and the wine will almost certainly have held up, but will its alcohol by be more evident?"

92 points "An astonishing nose of peach and bramble with refreshing accents of lemon zest. The intense, off-dry palate of pistachio, pecan and apricot lead to a long, minerally finish. Carries its hefty 15.5% alcohol well. Best now to 2016." Best 2010-2016
