Wine Advocate 94 points - With virtually the same alcohol and residual sugar as its Heimbourg counterpart, the Zind-Humbrecht 2011 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl and arguably is even more revealing of a cool, breezy, calcareous site?s advantages in a vintage where extremely high must weights were the price for really rip-tasting Gewurztraminer. Smoked meats, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, lychee, pineapple, and decadent perfume of rose and lily combine for a seductive aroma as well as on a lush, creamy multi-faceted palate. Not only does uncanny fresh fruit juiciness emerge in the finish, but there is also amazing buoyancy for a wine of nearly 14% alcohol, and a streak of salinity stimulates the salivary glands while perfectly complimenting the liquid florality and aura of caramelization that also emerge. There is even a suggestion of chalk and stone to ground this soaring tribute to its site, cepage and grower. It kept revealing greater charm the longer it was exposed to air. Expect impressive showings through at least 2030.  (Aug 2014)

Wine Spectator 94 points - Beautifully balanced and racy, with searing acidity providing a firm backbone for the finely knit flavors of papaya, apricot tart, orange peel, aromatic smoke, anise and ground cardamom. Offers a lightly honeyed, lasting finish that echoes the fruit character. Drink now through 2025. From France.A.N. (Sep 4 2013)
