What experts say  
  
 
87/100 "The 2014 Gewurztraminer Réserve comes from younger vines (20 years) on top sites like Fürstentum, Kaefferkopf and Wineck Schlossberg. Citrus colored, it is impressively clear, refined and aromatic on the nose. Super juicy, round and piquant on the palate, this is a powerful and well-structured but not that overloaded Gewurztraminer. The wine has grip and varies its orange, rose and spicy aromas from the nose to the finish. This is a digestible Gewurz from great terroirs, a very gastronomic wine with a salty aftertaste that goes well as aperitif or with cheese. ” (2014 vintage)
 
  
  91/100 "This compact, vibrant white is medium-bodied and well-cut, delivering tightly knit flavors of apricot, kumquat, smoke and cantaloupe, with hints of honey and lychee. Dry and focused, with a well-spiced finish." (2013 vintage)
