Winemaker's Notes

In 1998, the Clos Windsbuhl grapes reached a ripeness and complexity level that can be seen only in the best vintages. Little botrytis and perfect health explain the strong aromatic potential of this wine. The palate is rich and unctuous, long lasting flavors that are between spicy and fruity. It has an ultra classic balance, and despite a finished high alcohol level, the mouth is harmonious.

The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959 by the merging of two families, that on Zenon Humbrecht, viticulteur in Gueberschwihr, and that of Emile Zind, viticulteur in Wintzenheim, with the marriage of their children, Leonard Humbrecht and Ginette Zind.

The vinification is now in the hands of Oliver Humbrecht, son of Ginette and Leonard. In 1995, Robert Parker called Oliver's 1993's "The wine of a genius".
