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.
92-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2008
(slightly cloudy appearance following the racking; 20 g/l r.s., vs. 10 for the regular Brand; this very ripe parcel was slow to ferment so Humbrecht kept it separate) High-pitched aromas of ripe peach and brown spices. A sweet, sexy fruit bomb with ripe but racy acidity giving it excellent thrust. The gripping finish conveys a chewy, almost tannic impression of dry extract, which may be partly due to the wine's leesy element. Interestingly, this went through ML while the regular Brand did not.
