Reviews and Ratings

Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Brilliant colour with such intense honey you can smell it from 5 cm.! Full bodied with candied fruit. Crisp acids would make this a match for a wide variety of foods or simply alone on a nice summer day. Nice long finish of citrus and honey.

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I tasted this in a blind tasting and immediately pegged it as a Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pronounced tropical notes of honeysuckle, melon and apricot with a touch of lemon and honey. Off dry (8 g/l sugar) with flavours of apple, citrus and honey and a lovely long finish. A great balance of fruit and acidity. From the assortment of appetizers available this was an excellent match with a cream cheese dip that had been blended with some candied ginger!
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine is beautiful example of aromatic Alsatian Pinot Gris.
Bright yellow gold in colour, this wine has an intense aromas of ripe yellow apples, peaches, apricots, violets and nasturtium. Falling just short of off-dry, the palate is equally rich in flavours, especially apricots, honey, and apples. This wine has lots of body, with a glycerine feel. It also has good acidity and a lovely medium finish that ends with white almond notes. Score 92. (S.Segard, reviewed Feb. 25, 2017)
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This brilliant honey hued Pinot Gris has a lot going on! Aromas of honey, cantaloupe, starfruit, and candied apricot, with a lovely grapefruit crispness on the palate, and a lingering honey finish. Perfect with spicier dishes or barbecue wings.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Bursting with honey and pear aromas. The palate offers crisp pear flavor infused with honey and a touch of citrus.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A scrumptious example of benchmark Alsatian Pinot Gris (and one of my fav wine styles)! If aromas could be heard, then this wine has mega bass! Pronounced aroma characteristics include: honey, apricot, red delicious apple, ripe nectarine, mango and sweet spice. The flavour profile is similar to the nose with equally pronounced fruit and honey concentration. The wines is medium dry on the palate (8g/l of residual sugar), medium (+) acidity, medium (+) body and a long lush honeyed finish. Pair with spicey beef and cashew stir fry.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lots of tropical fruit on the nose, layered with pear and honey. Silky yet crisp on the palate with a long finish, try this wine with spicy Asian fare.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful example of Alsatian Pinot Gris. Aromas of honeysuckle, citrus, apricot and pear. Some smokiness and lovely sweetness with lasting finish. Well-balanced and pleasant. Was a highlight of a recent wine tasting with friends- matched well with variety of appetizers, especially those with a spicies to them. Perfect for drinking now.
This Médaillé D'or French white wine is produced by La Cave Vinicole D'ingersheim, established in 1926. This Alsatian winery was named in honour of the 15th-century preacher Jean Geiler. - Community Wine Reviews
