Wine Advocate 91 points - On paper, the Zind-Humbrecht 2008 Pinot Gris Clos Jebsal Vendange Tardive differs significantly from its 2009 counterpart only in harboring such high acidity. And indeed, it tastes drier than do a couple of this years non-V.T. Gewurztraminer or this years Pinot Gris V.V. Dried peach, orange zest, leather, and a prickle of horseradish in the nose lead into an almost severely-concentrated and wince-inducingly bright palate saturated with fresh lemon and orange and laced with faintly bitter zest and sharp horseradish. Hints of lanolin and spice from oak add another dimension that like the wines sheer citricity and dried fruit character needs time to integrate. This finishes with blazing, eye-watering brightness and limb-twitching electricity. Im not sure what one should swallow to calm down after experiencing it I personally had to forge on to taste S.G.N.s. Give this at least half a dozen years in bottle for it to calm down; then, figure it will be worth following for at least another 20. (The corresponding Jebsal S.G.N. is a so-called “trie speciale that was not even done fermenting when I visited last November.) (May 2011)
