90 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar: "The 2018 Pinot Gris from Paul Fuchs hails from a parcel of vines on the Mulforst hillside, halfway between Ribeauvillé and Hunawihr. It is a warmer terroir, with the vines planted on silty clay soils. However, they are planted right up under the tree-line, which helps retain acidity in the wine. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in old foudres. The 2018 offers up a ripe and stylish nose of peach, a touch of tangerine, musky floral tones, a nice base of soil and a topnote of straw. On the palate the wine is bright, succulent and full-bodied, with a lovely core of fruit, good soil signature and grip, sound framing acids and impressive length on the complex and wide open finish. This comes in at fourteen percent in 2018 and carries a wisp of backend sweetness, but I really like the balance that Monsieur Fuchs has struck with this wine in the hot summer of 2018. Good juice. 2020-2030." 10/2020
