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
Brand Vieilles Vignes
Zind Humbrecht

RP -
The Humbrecht’s 2007 Riesling Brand Vieilles Vignes (tasted from cask) was picked already September 16 in the Schneckelsburg (or Schneckenburg), just above the Clos Jebsal, and allowed to stop fermenting at 13% alcohol and a supportive but barely noticeable 20 grams of residual sugar. A stunning, haunting nose of rowan, linden, iris, liquorice, resin, white peach, and sea breeze foreshadows the elusive complexities of a palate combining sumptuous richness and subtle oiliness with lift and refreshment. This finishes almost torrentially, with salt, iodine, and peat staining its waves of fruit and nut oils, while floral perfume billows persistently overhead.

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 -
Mango, musk melon, litchi, jasmine, black tea, and ginger on the nose of the Zind-Humbrecht 2007 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl join with honey, lime, and marzipan on a creamy, buoyant palate for an effect confectionary and yet somehow refreshing. Cashew brittle, candied ginger and lime zest along with liquid floral perfume dominate the soothing, buoyant, almost endlessly enticing finish. This benefits from some of the highest acidity of any of the Zind-Humbrecht 2007s, even though one doesn’t taste that as such. You can lock this away for 20 years if you wish, but it is still going to have sweetness to spare, I suspect, so why not savour it all along, even if that means unaccompanied?
