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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
(12.9% alcohol; 69 g/l r.s.; made from declassified Hengst and Goldert fruit in 2010): Bright yellow-gold. Exotic spices, flowers, rose and crushed stone on the perfumed nose, along with a hint of white raisin. Powerful extract, a saline quality and notes of spices and flowers give this wine a remarkably savory, tactile mid-palate. A very minerally style of gewurztraminer, this should make an outstanding white wine with cheeses. Buffering minerality gives the suave, dusty finish a fairly dry impression in spite of the substantial residual sugar. Wonderfully light on its feet. (ST)
