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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2010
($38) Pale bright gold. Wet stone, earth, honey and leesy hazelnut on the nose, plus a smoky nuance. Then bracing on the palate, with a powerful impression of acidity that is not explained by the numbers (a moderate 6.9 grams per liter). Penetrating flavors of pineapple, apple, stone and spices avoid coming off as hard, as the acidity is nicely integrated. Quite long for this cuvee Conveys a remarkably dry impression considering that it has 9 grams per liter of residual sugar; in fact, Olivier Humbrecht gives this wine an indice of 1 (on his 1 to 5 scale), which he uses to denote wines that are either technically dry or taste dry.
