91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
Bright, pale yellow. Penetrating passion fruit, pear liqueur, marzipan and creme brulee on the nose, plus an intense note of strawberry; this has real power and aromatic complexity. Then quite sweet but tight in the mouth, with enough acidity to keep the ripe flavors of lemon and cooked apple bright and focused. This is the first-ever Kaefferkopf pinot gris for this estate as Meyer feels the 14-year-old vines only now justify being labeled as grand cru. This young wine needs another three years to develop more complexity and volume, but it already offers the nose of an outstanding pinot gris.
