There are more expensive Pinot Gris wines on the market, particularly those made in late harvest styles, but I have yet to find one that is better than Clos Windsbuhl. This is a masterpiece of Alsatian Pinot Gris, combining all the richness of fruit, spice, honey and almond, topped with floral and mineral accents. This presents it all in a rich, oily wine laced with acidity and suggestion of bitter citrus oils. It comes together to create a wine that will wow even the most jaded palate. This is a wine that shows its best at about the 10 year mark, so be prepared to pay up for a mature bottle if you need to try this now. Otherwise, check out a mature 4-year-old bottle of the Paul Blanck to see if you should be laying some of this down!
