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.
94 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2007
(192o Oechsle; the first bottling under this label since the '94; just 400 liters made; nearly 12% alcohol with about 240 g/l r.s.) Deep full, bright gold. High-toned aromas of peach, apricot, honey and caramel. Wonderfully thick, smooth and round, with a deeply honeyed character and great density and solidity of texture. More deeply pitched than the tokay SGNs, with extravagant sweetness but not quite the verve of the Clos Jebsal. From an October 20 picking, among the latest for the domain in 2005. The very long finish coats the palate with honey.
