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.

($48; 13% alcohol, 6.8 g/l r.s. and 8.7 grams acidity) Medium yellow-gold. Complex and expressive nose offers notes of fruit salad, minerals, exotic flowers and smoky brown spices. Broad but quite minerally and dry; accessible in texture but austere in its subtle fruit salad flavors, as the wine's strong acid spine will need time to be absorbed. I find this less refined than the Gueberschwihr, which is from a slightly cooler and more limestone-influenced area. But this rather powerful riesling should evolve slowly and last well.
