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.
92-94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
Cloudy appearance. Highly complex, soil-inflected aromas of minerals, flowers, mint, burnt stone and peppery spices. Dense, spicy and dry, with a youthfully reductive quality; the strong smoky minerality and saline element scream out Rangen. This is like chewing stone. Very dry (just two grams of residual sugar) but very rich riesling that combines high minerality and high pH. This appears to be stronger than the very good 2005, which was affected by some hydric stress in September.
