95 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Wine Enthusiast): "A flinty glint of reduction shoots across the nose. Underneath, a sea of ripe citrus awaits with still-subdued intensity. Hints of earth and stone lend gravity while mandarin, ripe lemon and tangerine play a subtle, aromatic game. The harmonious and slender palate takes these flavors in stride and holds them with lemon intensity. The finish is dry, intense and long. Alcohol 12%. (Aug 2019)"

94 points Wine Spectator: "A mineral-driven version, this displays austere power and intensity, with steely acidity and tightly meshed flavors of poached pear, Marcona almond, starfruit, white pepper, minerally petrol and smoke. Delivers a lightly honeyed quality that plays off the acidity to create an accessible, mouthwatering impression today, although this should age beautifully with some time in the cellar. Best from 2023 through 2033. 30 cases imported. (2/29/20)"

93-94 points Stephen Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "The sample of the 2017 Alsace Riesling Clos Windsbuhl opens super pure and powdery on the bright, fresh and mineral nose. Highly elegant and lush on the palate, this is a generous but pure, refined and chalky Riesling with very fine tannins and lingering salinity. Tasted October 2018. Drink: 2026-2040. (Oct 2018)"
