Winemaker Notes

Refined, mineral nose that opens up to display vibrant citrus and white fruits. The palate has a smooth, delicate, mineral structure but quickly firms up around the acidity. Beautiful ripe, integrated acidity.

This wine pairs well with seafood, shellfish, pork chops, goat cheese or sushi.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
In a departure from typical recent behavior, Zind-Humbrecht’s 2011 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl (last tasted from cask) fermented to a mere four grams of residual sugar. Yet, it reached only a modest 13.4% alcohol. This boasts hazelnut and walnut piquancy, musky inner-mouth perfume, and juicy white peach and lemon on a palpably dense, expansive, yet somehow also buoyant palate. Where the corresponding Clos Hauserer bore at least superficial resemblance to Chablis, here one might detect some kinship with Meursault. In either case, there is an undeniable sense of chalky, stony underpinnings as well as a vibratory finishing intensity with a sense of animation and sheer juiciness rare for the vintage. Plan to follow this through at least 2028.
Rating: 92-93
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A well-knit, fresh and accessible white, offering a sense of finesse and restraint to the finely layered flavors of fresh-cut apple, melon, ground ginger and white pepper, with hints of citrus zest, almond and fleur de sel and a long, smoky finish. Drink now through 2025.

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.
