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 yellow-gold. Soft citrus fruits, wild herbs and minerals on the nose. Dense, thick and spicy, but with a softer impression of acidity than the Vieilles Vignes VT giving this remarkably tactile wine a bit less delineation in the early going. But this extremely primary, lightly saline wine boasts a rising, almost biting finish thanks to a strong crushed-stone element. Strong stone fruit flavors emerged after four days in the recorked bottle without any loss of chewiness. Another remarkable pinot gris with a long future ahead of it. (ST)
