99pts James Suckling

  A stunning wine with ethereal aromas of sliced apple, sliced pear and mineral character. Flowers and honeysuckle too. Full-bodied, very tight and dense. It goes so deep and beautiful. Bright and tangy acidity. Has the depth of a great vintage of grand cru Burgundy but is so Clos Ste. Hune in character. Muscularly feminine and breathtaking. Available in 2019.

96pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  The 2014 Riesling Clos Ste Hune is clear and intense on the concentrated nose, offering ripe white-fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a bone-dry, vital and finessed Riesling with a long and tension-filled, salty finish. The 2014 is a kind of quintessence of the Ribeauvillé/Hunawihr terroir: pure, lean, stony and salty, with no flesh, but lots of bones and minerals at this very early moment. Picked at 35 hl/ha this is a straight Sainte Hune that will last for for 30+ years.

  Pale straw-green. Very deep, pure aromas of stone fruits, green papaya, licorice and lemon verbena. Rich and dense, but with vivid acidity providing the stone fruit and citrus flavors with remarkable clarity and cut. The extremely long finish features lingering floral and lemon nuances. This strikes me as being just a bit riper than the Frédéric Emile, but with sneaky underlying power and a refined mouthfeel brought out by the calcaire of the Rosacker. The crop level here was reportedly only 35 hectoliters per hectare.(ID)
