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.

($190; for 375 ml.; 10.8% alcohol, 188 g/l r.s. and 10.7 acidity) Deep golden-bronze. Heavily botrytized, high-toned aromas of orange marmalade, tangy apricot, honey and toasted bread, lifted by a mineral element. Piercing, riesling-like acidity gives brilliant clarity to the fresh orange and apricot flavors. Dense and thick but utterly racy. This is still an infant. The salty, painful finishing flavors saturate the palate and build for minutes.
