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(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
(15.8% alcohol, 26 g/l r.s. and 2.7 acidity) Bright yellow. Reticent, soil-driven aromas of smoked meat and spices. Less fruity and perfumed than the Goldert but more chewy and powerful, if not a bit topheavy with alcohol. This structured, backward wine will get increasingly spicy with bottle aging, and calls for patience. Olivier loves this but I find it a bit extreme in the early going.
