Wine Advocate, 95 Points 

"Harvested on September 19, the 2017 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Hengst offers generous and open (tropical) fruit with lots of floral aromas and great elegance. On the palate, this is a generous, dense, persistently salty and finely tannic Pinot with a great and lively finish. From an average of 30-year-old vines on limestone-sandstone soils, this is "Madame Hengst," one of the most female Hengst grands crus I have tasted. It is lush and salty on the finish, even with some exotic Gewurtz flavors, always refined and very, very elegant. Bottled with 14% alcohol plus 22 grams of residual sugar, so there is a lot to swallow here." 

Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points 

"A touch of flinty reduction still clings to this wine's aromas of juicy pear. The palate, precise and firm, then swells to contain all the vivid, ripe pear fruit. Freshness makes the mouth water. Despite the richness, this concentrated wine stays toned and firm. The finish is just off dry and balanced, ringing with richness and precision." 

James Suckling, 94 Points 

"This is ultra concentrated and ultra-sweet with ripe mangoes and peaches that pervade the nose and palate. Carries very long and juicy with such pure fruit. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 

Alcohol: 14%
