Vinous, Antonio Galloni 96 Points - Pale, bright yellow. Sexy high-pitched yet delicate aromas of nectarine, lime, flint and white flowers on the captivating, almost Mosel-like nose. Then broad and inviting, offering soft, nuanced flavors of ripe peach, citrus jam, minerals and flint. Finishes long and slightly sweet (12 g/l residual sugar) but owing to its firm acidity this wine seems off-dry. The grapes were slightly affected by both noble rot and passerillage, and has an extra measure of sweetness and texture as a result. This couldn’t be any more different from the Rangen but is just as great, and still very young: don’t touch it for another ten years.

 

Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points - One of the great vineyard sites of Turckheim, Brand has produced this exquisitely balanced wine. Its fruits showcase intense acidity with citrus, pink grapefruit followed by pineapple crispness. Overall, the tight texture is still in charge, giving a mineral, textured character. So it does need to age; drink from 2019.
