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.
93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2003
(14.4% alcohol and 90 g/l r.s.; here fully half the fruit was nobly rotten) Exotic aromas of ripe pineapple and honey. Superripe and intensely spicy, with firm-edged acids giving the wine a slightly more aggressive character today than the Heimbourg. Comparatively backward gewurztraminer, less expressive today than the Heimbourg. Finishes with cinnamon and nutmeg notes and some obvious tannins.
