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.

Bright deep gold. Pure, smoky botrytis aromas of peach nectar, roasted pineapple, caramelized banana and tangy crystallized orange and lemon peel. Wonderfully sweet (actually 280 g/l!) but with amazing clarity and cut thanks to sharp but harmonious citrussy acidity, which really lifts the ripe tropical fruit flavors. The bracing finish mounts inexorably and goes on for minutes. This will last for decades.
