Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"The nose is still shy, giving a mere hint of earthy pear but the palate comes alive with juicy fresh ripe, yellow pear. There is a wonderfully poised balance to all of this. There is a fluid medium body and restrained power. All of this gives the impression of understatement since this rounded unobtrusive wine truly delivers with its integral balance and its off-dry finish. Drink until 2028." 

Importer Notes: 

"Alsatian Pinot Gris is an often-misunderstood category—a pity, considering the pleasures it can afford, especially once it’s acquired a few years of bottle age, as with this late release from the historic Kuentz-Bas estate. Unlike light, crisp Italian Pinot Grigio, the grape achieves a sun-drenched plumpness that translates to a lusciousness on the palate, no doubt from the dry, sunny climate Alsace enjoys in the rain shadow of the Vosges. With a subtle touch of sweetness, Florimont is far from a dessert wine, as its complementarity to bratwurst, pork chops, and roasted root vegetables attests. It is a grand cru that confers exceptional finesse—in other words, this is a full-bodied white with a featherweight touch."
