"94+ out of 100…Well, the 2013 Gewurztraminer Hengst is no wine for easy drinking. It is the only Grand Cru that bids defiance to the Rangen de Thann. Coming from vines plated soon after WWII and 1957, the nose is seriously deep, salty-mineral and fresh, and displays clear aromas of white stone fruits, orange and lemon zests. Round, elegant and clear on the palate, this is a full-bodied, very elegant and tightly woven wine of great complexity, finishing with a dense, compact and mineral taste. The aftertaste of this powerful wine is tremendous and so is the potential. Sweeter than the Rangen but very promising too." - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
"96 out of 100...A very dense and gorgeous wine with stone, limestone, chalk and dried apple character. Full body, off dry. Amazing finish. It goes on for minutes. What great transparency and clarity. Drink or hold. - James Suckling
