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.
88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
($75; from vines planted in the '60s and '70s) Full yellow. Honeyed exotic fruits on the expressive nose, along with a toasty nuance. Supersweet honey, apricot and spice flavors convey a lush, low-acid impression following the 2006 rieslings. But this surprisingly accessible wine finishes quite smooth. Following a very long fermentation, this finished with 45 grams of r.s., compared to just 8 for the riesling from the same vineyard.
