Winemaker Notes

The nose shows intense white fruit aromas, classic Riesling intensity without the more stony character often found on richer wines. The palate feels surprisingly intense, while finishing very dry but without any tightness. An easy wine to enjoy in its youth.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

In this wine, it seems like the purest orange zest is clouded in stony smoke. The palate allows for more generous juiciness, rippling across the tongue with ample freshness and verve. The finish is of aromatic citrus foliage, ripe lemon and tangerine.

JS 92
James Suckling
Full and complex aromas of fresh and candied citrus, which are accentuated by the hint of grape sweetness. The medium-bodied palate is ripe and slightly creamy, but the finish is vivid and lively. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.
WS 91
Wine Spectator

Lovely aromas of spice, graphite and petrol waft from the glass of this well-cut and creamy, light-to medium-bodied white, which offers a finely layered range of creamed apple and baked yellow peach flavors, with accents of smoke and pink grapefruit zest.

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".

Certified Organic and Biodynamic.

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.
