"Smoky mineral and honeycomb winding through ripe pear, yellow peach, orange zest and pickled ginger"
Decanter named Domaine Zind Humbrecht in Alsace as one of France’s Top Ten wineries: “Does winemaking genius exist? If it does then Olivier Humbrecht MW must be in the frame.” Wine Advocate called the wines “absolutely impressive in their depth”. The family have been growers since 1620 and starting making their own wines in 1947. They now have 41 hectares, all tended biodynamically – by 24 full-time staff – to express as perfectly as possible the grape and its terroir. Owner Olivier Humbrecht has written that “without any doubt, 2010 is a great vintage”. It wasn’t an easy one and yields are tiny, but the acidity was high, so wines have aged brilliantly. From the ideally situated Herrenweg vineyard, this wine is rich, elegant and off-dry.
