    Cuvée presentation

    At once generous, unctuous and tight, this Riesling is a perfect example of the elegant wines from this varietal. It has balance and persistence with a silky finish, giving a bouquet of citrus and herb aromas.The biotite granite soil translates in this cuvée with a stony minerality and the vineyard’s south-facing aspect provide perfect conditions for a long sunny ripening. A few years in the cellar are required to unveil its full potential, but it can equally be enjoyed young.

    Information about domain 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.
