Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 94+

($133; 14.5% alcohol and 145 g/l. r.s.) Medium gold color. Superripe aromas of dried fruits, honey, marzipan and clove; a bit less high-toned than the Rotenberg SGN. Superripe, spicy and powerful, combining great ripeness and harmonious acidity. But this is less expressive and a bit more aggressive today than the Rotenberg.

Caramel, brown sugar, peaches, and apricots make up the nose of the 2000 Pinot Gris Heimbourg Selection de Grains Nobles. A wide, lush, intense wine of enormous depth (9 hectoliter per hectare yields), it bastes the palate with jammy peaches, apricots, plums, and spices. This exceptionally well-balanced effort reveals a magnificently long, flavorful finish. This velvety-textured offering can be drunk over the next 30-40 years.

Wine Spectator | 94

Packed with botrytis, lending concentration and honey, dried fruit and citrus notes, this has lively acidity and a thick texture, yet retains freshness and elegance. Still, it's monolithic in flavor now; needs time to show its multifaceted character.

About This Producer


In Alsace, history is always relevant and with nearly 400 years of winegrowing in his DNA, Olivier Humbrecht should know a thing or two about history. He is intimately connected with wine production in the region. He was the first Frenchman to qualify as a Master of Wine, and is also president of Biodyvin, a French organization committed to biodynamic farming practices. At Zind-Humbrecht , established in 1959, he and his father Leonard oversee production of 13,000-16,000 cases each year from 30 hectares of domaine-owned plots in four Grand Cru vineyards, among other highly regarded sites. These excellent, often incredibly steep vineyard sites, combined with yields of half what is legally acceptable for Grand Crus, produce Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Muscat of uncompromising pedigree. The Zind-Humbrecht commitment to biodynamics is certainly not mere semantics. Whether in the vineyard or the cellar, tasks are scheduled according to the phases of the moon and the requisite cow horns are buried to improve soil vitality. Whether or not one chooses to believe in this regimen, that Zind-Humbrecht is one of the top, if not the top, producer in Alsace is impossible to deny.
