87 Points, Wine Advocate
"Harvested early but already under the strong influence of botrytis, the deeply-golden 2008 Muscat d-Alsace Herrenweg unexpectedly re-fermented in Spring to arrive at 14% alcohol, while retaining a near-ten grams of acidity that would cause most Alsace Rieslings (not to mention their growers!) to blanch. The nose is so prickly-pungent that I almost sneezed. Scents of sage, catnip, orange zest, apricot, and mushroom are joined on a palate as bright as it is full-bodied by sharp fresh lemon and bitter apricot kernel. A strongly saline streak emerges in the invigorating - indeed, nearly tooth-jarring - finish, which scarcely betrays its alcohol, though I would not characterize it as being juicy. I have no idea how this singular - I'm tempted to say -downright weird- - Muscat will evolve, but I challenge those not faint of heart to try playing around with some at table. It will be good for some conversation too, I can assure you! "
