97 points Bettane & Desseauve Guide (2024).

96 points Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com): "This smells of the ripest melon you can imagine. Fresh herbal notes, including a touch of mint. Super-elegant and bright with a very sensual, silky texture on the generous palate. The stunning concentration masks the high acidity that drives the very long and chalky finish. With this much vitality it surely has enormous aging potential. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (8/8/22)"

96 points La Revue du Vin de France: "In pinot gris... the Clos Windsbuhl shows itself to be spicy and full-bodied, gourmand and self-assured, accessible when young. (2024)"

94 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Vinous): "The 2021 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl has a flicker of reduction and shows off subtle russet pear, ripe and gentle. The palate has a pear peel texture and seems almost austere with its bone-dryness. A lemon touch makes the mouth water and becomes more intense towards the dry finish, which holds some gingerbread spice, ginger and cinnamon. Gorgeous and different. (Bone-dry) Drink: 2027-2060. (Apr 2023)"

Producer notes: "Pale yellow colour. The nose shows fresh citrus fruit driven aromatics, giving clues on the structure and style of the palate: tight, firm mouthfeel with lots of tension. If it wouldn’t be for a certain brightness and richness, this wine could easily be confused with the Riesling of the same vineyard. It possesses a typical limestone Windsbuhl vertebrae that makes it so elegant with a long intense finish, supported by a ripe acidity. This very dry wine and the mineral rich palate also bring a certain noble bitterness that will allow this wine to age and evolve nicely for a long time."
