Alsace Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl Zind-Humbrecht (Domaine) 2012

The wine

The origins of Clos Windsbuhl go back a long way: there is evidence of wine production from this variety dating from before 1760. In this exceptional terroir, with its varied subsoils and carefully-controlled yields, the Pinot Gris grape expresses itself through this wine in a dense, aromatic register. It is undeniably made for keeping, and has quickly become one of the region's flagship wines.

About the Producer Zind-Humbrecht

Zind Humbrecht was created in 1959 as a result of the merger of the wine producing operations of the Humbrecht family in Gueberschwihr and the Zind family in Wintzenheim. The Humbrechts are a very old wine-making family, who have been passing their skills from one generation to the next since the Thirty Years War (1620). The property has 40 hectares and is managed according to biodynamic principles. Zind Humbrecht has long been established as one of Alsace's most reputable producers. Léonard Humbrecht has placed quality over quantity, developing superb terroirs that have been neglected because they are too difficult to work, such as Rangen in Thann. Today, Olivier Humbrecht and his father are only interested in exceptional terroirs; their insistence on quality, combined with virtuoso technical ability, enable them to produce exceptionally dense, complex wines that are always respectful of the characteristics of the grape varieties and the terroir.
