Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Juicy mandarin on the nose has a touch of maplesyrup spice. The palate has gentle sweetness but much of that mandarin freshness, too. There is a lovely interplay of freshness and richness on a body that remains svelte despite its roundness. The finish is off dry, zesty and long.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Lightly juicy, with mouthwatering acidity, this features a streak of spicy mineral underscoring the flavors of lychee, candied lime zest, white peach and verbena. Fresh and expressive, with a lasting tang of salinity on the finish.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This 2016 Gewurztraminer "Roche Calcaire" (L 17H) is clear, fresh and spicy on the nose, with lots of lychee, pepper and rose petal aromas. The palate is pure, lush, piquant and well-structured, with perfect roundness that doesn't taste too sweet but like ripe pears. The 2016 is very elegant and balanced and finishes with grip and stimulating salinity. It is a powerful but straight and stimulating Gewurzt with grip, salt and lots of spices. Excellent.

Zind-Humbrecht, France
Zind-Humbrecht Olivier Humbrecht  Winery Image
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".

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.
