Riesling
Clos Windsbuhl
Zind Humbrecht

RP/Stefan Reinhardt -
Intense yellow in colour, the 2015 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl is deep, clear, pure, ripe and rich on the nose, with smoky and toasty (speck) aromas and lovely fresh lemon flavours. Coming from pure, thinner limestone soils, this is a tension-filled, pure and salty, but also rich and lush Riesling with great tension. Still closed but highly elegant, full of finesse and tension, this Riesling is provided with great length and aging potential. The 2015 Windsbuhl is going to be bottled with 12.4 grams of residual sugar and 12.3% alcohol. Fine tannins and grip here. Gorgeous, but keep it for ten years or more. So pure, so salty, so fresh and finessed.

Riesling
Brand Grand Cru
Zind Humbrecht

RP/Stefan Reinhardt -
From granite soils, Humbrecht's 2015 Riesling Brand is terribly pure, fine and highly precise, delivering crushed stones and lemon perfume, as if it were another Sommerberg. Exciting! On the palate, this is a lush yet pure, intense and ripe, yet mineral and piquant Riesling; it has great elegance, noble intensity and great terroir expression. What a stimulating richness but also purity here, a beautifully fine tannin grip (as if it was Pinot Noir), and a long and persistent finish. This is a must buy of the vintage. Olivier compares the 2015 to 1983, which was also a very warm year and delivered elegant wines. This is pure, rich, lean, piquant and mineral, very stony, lush and fruity. Most of all, it is full of energy and fascination! A must buy!

Pinot Gris
Clos Windsbuhl
Zind Humbrecht

RP/Stefan Reinhardt -
The 2015 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl opens clear and fine on the nose, with smoky/dusty flavours of crushed stones. Round and elegant, with a lush fruit, it still has precision and structure. This is a grippy and salty/vibrant wine with fine tannins, 10.8 grams of residual sugar and 13.17% alcohol.

Gewürztraminer
Clos Windsbuhl
Zind Humbrecht

RP/Stefan Reinhardt -
 The 2015 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl is in fact a Vendange Tardive that was picked at 16.66% potential alcohol, since it stopped fermentation at 12.5% and 70.7 grams of residual sugar. However, Oliver did did not announce that he would produce a VT in the Windsbuhl, so he isn't allowed to sell this wine as a such. Even without the Vendange Tardive predicate, the 2015 is a great and age-worthy Gewurz that is rich, sweet and concentrated but enormously well structured. It is made for long-term bottle aging of 10, 20 or 30 years.

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 £45.00 RP95
