About Domaine Zind Humbrecht
The properties of Zenon Humbrecht and Emile Zind merged in 1959 to form Zind-Humbrecht. The domaine now covers 40 hectares in five villages in the Haut-Rhin; its best parcels from four Grand Cru vineyards: Brand, Hengst, Goldert, and Clos St. Urbain on the steep slopes of Rangen.
87-90? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2001
Aromatic nose of minerals and spices. Less sweet than the Rotenberg (about 8 g/l r.s., vs. 14), and thus more penetrating, even somewhat austere. I find this a bit topheavy with alcohol (15%). Leaves a dry impression on the finish, which betrays a hint of harshness. The only question mark I have about a few of the Z-H VTs and SGNs in 2000: is there a sufficient concentration of acidity to balance the sugar and alcohol?
