"The 2013 Muscat Goldert Grand Cru is made from healthy picked 90% Muscat d'Alsace and 10% Muscat Ottonel, grown on deep limestone soils. The wine offers a deep, clear and crisp Muscat aroma with some orange flavors. Medium to full-bodied, lean and fresh, but also intense and aromatic on the palate, this is a dry, crisp, almost racy, very mineral, and well structured Muscat with a lingering salinity and aromatic fruitiness. Very expressive and with very good aging potential. Grapefruit aromas in the aftertaste. Drink now and over the next 10 or 12 years. 92pts" The Wine Advocate.

"Zind-Humbrecht’s petits grains-dominated 2010 Muscat d’Alsace Herrenweg represents the same source as their generic 2011bottling, but they labeled with the vineyard name in 2010 to convey cachet to what they deemed an especially successful vintage for this variety. Having finished analytically dry but with moderate 13.5% alcohol and predictably bright 2010-typical acids, this represents a bracing and refreshing as well as ultimately highly versatile libation. Pungent peppermint, pennyroyal and lemon rind penetrate the nostrils and stimulate the palate in a firm, vibrant, invigorating and refreshing performance. This is about as juicily citric – not just zesty – as a Muscat can get, and for all of its sheer intensity it isn’t blatant in the way wines from that grape family can be. On the contrary, bittersweet floral and stony-saline nuances emerge. Plan to savor this inevitably versatile bottling through at least 2020. Incidentally, Olivier Humbrecht pointed out to me as we tasted this wine that in his gradual conversion of former Ottonel vines to Alsace variants of petit grain Muscat care was taken to preserve a 50-50 ratio of the latter’s white- and reddish-berried strains. The white version, he says, preserves more acidity and ripens at lower must weight, but the red adds complexity. 90pts" The Wine Advocate

"Sourced from different villages with limestone soils (and acidity!) and bottled with approximately 10 grams of residual sugar, the 2013 Pinot Gris Calcaire has a still closed bouquet but already indicates its chalky origins by lemon aromas. The wine is full-bodied, firm and mineral at the moment, but was round and juicy when I tasted it from an open bottle at a wine fair in March. Well structured, racy, and provided with a stimulating salinity and a nice grip, this vin de calcaire should age well over the next 6-8 years. 89pts" The Wine Advocate

15.6% alcohol; 15 g/l r.s.): Medium yellow. Soft citrus and pear aromas lifted by orange and spice botrytis notes and a mineral element. Lush, fine-grained and very rich, showing more baby fat today than the Heimbourg. But this moderately sweet and perhaps deceptively accessible pinot gris boasts excellent grip too, showing a rising finish drawn out by a sound spine of acidity. 90+ Vinous
