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.
95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
(14% alcohol; 60 g/l residual sugar and 10.8 g/l acidity): Bright medium gold; looks like a very sweet wine. Peach syrup, pineapple, spun sugar and botanical herbs on the nose, plus a whiff of roasted banana and some lemon-limey botrytis lift. Supersweet and exotic in the mouth but with powerful acidity keeping the glyceral mid-palate passion fruit and spice flavors under wraps today. Not as expressive as the Brand Vieilles Vignes in spite of its huge sweetness; in fact, this is almost painful today. But the explosive, tactile, slowly unfurling finish suggests a very promising future for this deeply spicy riesling, which boasts almost SGN-like intensity. (ST)
