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.
93-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2008
(racked; 12.4% alcohol with 74 g/l r.s.) Candied citrus peel, flowers and herbs on the nose and palate. Glyceral-rich but almost magically juicy, with lovely citric cut intensifying the wine's superb fruit. Barely 10% botrytized fruit here. This took a long time to ferment its sugars and went through malolactic fermentation, but it's wonderfully high-pitched and pure, with an exhilarating combination of low alcohol and brisk acidity. A knockout in the making, and probably a wine that will be best enjoyed on its own.
