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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2008
(15.2% alcohol, 38 g/l r.s. and 3.7 acidity) Classic aromas of smoked meat and spices. Fat, sweet and fruity, with surprising freshness in light of its fairly low acidity. With aeration, this showed complex and varietally accurate notes of rose petal, clove, cardamom, herbal tea and new-car leather. Finishes long and smooth. (Incidentally, the wine simply labeled Gewurztraminer is also very ripe, broad and spicy, with somewhat elevated alcohol but less sweetness than the Turckheim bottling; I rated this one a solid 88.)
