Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson

From vines planted on the slope in 1964, the medium-sweet 2011 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Hengst shows a very clear and fresh, powerfully aromatic bouquet with floral and fruity flavors. Rich, sweet and lovely piquant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, fruit-intense and fleshy classic that balances its 14.5% alcohol pretty well with some 20 grams of residual sugar, and a refreshing and salty finish that leaves a lot of spices and tension on the palate, but no impression of needless sugar. I haven't tried it yet, but would love to taste this Hengst with Indian curries or clue cheeses.
