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.

(13% alcohol, 85 g/l r.s. and 5.5 acidity) Yellow-gold. Tangy, rot-ennobled aromas of honey and fruit salad. A near-confectionery, chewy fruit bomb whose sheer sweetness currently masks any inherent complexity. But these early-picked grapes (September 15!) also retained very good acidity. Olivier points out that "high-quality sweet wines were never meant to be drunk young." He may eventually release this as Vendanges Tardives.
