ZIND HUMBRECHT
This estate is considered to be one of the best in France by Robert Parker. The wines here are very pure and profound, and will repay the purchaser with cellaring - as they will only improve with age!

Riesling
Clos Windsbuhl
Zind Humbrecht

Wine Spectator -
Crackling acidity frames this dry white, but finds balance with rich, mineral-tinged notes of fleur de sel, lemon peel, brine and a hint of forest floor. This would pair beautifully with seafood, and the smoky finish recommends it to fish on the grill.

Pinot Gris
Clos Windsbuhl
Zind Humbrecht

RP -
The Zind-Humbrecht 2007 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl is another exercise in extremity, not only on account of its harbouring 15.3% alcohol – at 9 grams residual sugar – but for having taken longer than the vintage’s V.T.s or S.G.N.s to ferment. Smoky black tea, peat, and grilled peach on the nose follow on a voluminous, oily palate, along with saline, chalky notes surprising in a wine this overwhelmingly ripe, and helping to convey some counterpoint in a finish that – almost miraculously – is (for now at least) heat-free. Like the corresponding Rangen, this is difficult to describe and completely unique in my experience.

Gewürztraminer
Clos Windsbuhl
Zind Humbrecht

RP -
A decidedly sweet Zind-Humbrecht 2010 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl smells pungently of caramelized parsnip and celery root, whose intriguingly earthy flavours are complimented on an expansive palate and in a succulently long, rivetingly interactive finish by juicy orange and lemon along with alkaline, chalky, saline and ginger notes. Here is another 2010-vintage instance of Gewurztraminer not only possessed of Riesling-like vivacity and minerality but also of varietal character sublimated to that of site.
2010 £42.00 RP95
