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.

($74; 12% alcohol, 64 g/l r.s. and 9.3 acidity) Bright yellow-gold. Singular nose combines flint, yellow raisin, peach nectar, smoke, mint and marzipan. Tactile, saline and soil-driven, with penetrating acidity giving cut to the dense flavors of peach nectar and mint. Almost confectionery in the middle, but distinctly salty and firm on the extremely long finish. This is almost painful today. A superb expression of this grand cru site, with a light botrytis character only adding to its richness and complexity.
