    Winemaker Notes

    The granite of the Brand vineyard enjoyed a warm, forward climate. The excellent drainage of the soil explains why there was little botrytis on the clusters. It is rare to harvest Riesling at such ripeness without noble rot, and it is even rarer to see such a ripeness ferment almost dry, with its natural yeasts. The long fermentation (to the end of September 1999) gave a rich, long, and powerful body to the wine. The nose remains brand: fresh fruits and very developed.

    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. Before this date both families produced and sold their wines separately. Domaine Humbrecht had been passed from father to son since the Thirty Years War (1620). 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".
