Sélection 2014:

93 points - Riesling Grand Cru Brand 2010
The sand and granite soil of the Brand vineyard gives an intensely structured wine that’s tight and steely. It’s rich with apricot and pear flavors made crisp with refreshing acidity. Drink from 2015. — R.V.  (3/1/2014)

91 points – Riesling Cuvée Charles 2011

An aromatic wine with great depth, this is complex and concentrated. It brings out a great tangy, zesty, steely character that has freshness as well as richness in equal measure. White fruits and red currants leave a crisp, taut aftertaste.  — R.V.  (3/1/2014)

90 points – Crémant d'Alsace Emotion Brut NV 
While this is a nonvintage wine, it is still very young and will benefit from time in bottle. That will allow the rich apple and crisp lemon flavors to round out, calming the intense acidity. The potential of this rich wine is considerable. — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

90 points – Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Pfersigberg 2011
This is a sweet, very perfumed wine with pleasant candy flavors. Rich rosewater and spice notes add complexity, and chalk soils lend a crisp edge that cuts into the opulent character of the wine. It could age, not for long, so drink until 2018.  — R.V.  (3/1/2014)

89 points – Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé NV
This is deliciously fresh and full. Red fruits are laced with intense acidity and a crisp, clean texture. It gives instant fruity pleasure and a light and bright aftertaste. — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

89 points – Crémant d'Alsace Brut NV
Full and ripe, this is dominated by rich apple flavors that are cut with taut lemon zest. The wine is crisp, showing great acidity and a creamy aftertaste. — R.V.  (12/1/2014)

Sélection 2012:

92 points - Riesling Grand Cru Eichberg 2010
Big and ripe, this has flavors of apricots and stewed green plums, with a fine zing of acidity. It shows weight and richness, with a taut, nervy outer shell that demands aging. Age this for 3–4 years.  — R.V. (8/1/2012)

88 points – Riesling Grand Cru Brand 2009
Smooth, rich and silky, this is attractively lifted by yeast and almond flavors. It’s rounded and full bodied, and it’s developing fast. Drink this within the year.  — R.V. (8/1/2012)
