89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010

Medium straw-yellow color. Subdued but pure aromas of apricot, spices and mint, with hints of tropical fruit. Then ripe but juicy in the mouth, with racy acidity and an element of energy that come as a shock in the context of 2009. Dusty, serious pinot gris with a firm finish that's dry but not austere. A very successful wine that should be flexible at the table. This is considerably higher in acidity than the 2008 (7.3 grams, vs. 5.7), with slightly lower alcohol (14%, vs. 14.2%).
