    Rich and viscous, this is powerful. Hits you in the face with ripe, sweet aromas and flavors of pears, coconut, crŠme br–l‚e and orange peel. As thick as motor oil on the palate, but there's enough acidity to keep it refreshing. Delicious now, but can hold.

    The stunning, golden 1994 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl Vendange Tardive displays a hugely botrytised, smoke, honey, spice, and exotic fruit scented nose. This decadently-textured full-bodied wine coats the taster's palate with spice-laden mangoes, super-ripe apricots, and sweet peaches. It is a domineering wine, massive in its intensity of flavors and structure, yet remarkably maintains elegance and balance.

    Excellent VT. Some bottle variation so far, depending on the bottle I would rate this anywhere from 89-94 out of the 3 tried so far, with 92 being a fair mean. Rich gold color, not too sweet, lots of lychee and nectarine on both nose and palate. Weaker bottles have a short finish, but better bottles have full finish. Popular even with those who aren't familiar with Alsatian VT wines.

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.
