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.
About the cuvée
This Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives comes from the vineyard of Clos Jebsal, rich in Jebsal gysum marl which encourages the growth of the beneficial fungus botrytis cinerea, otherwise known as noble rot. It has a intense robe with discrete but noble aromas on the nose of honey, acacia and citrus. The palate is unctuous with a fabulous lively character. Allow to breathe before drinking to let its complexity develop and pair alongside spiced, coconut-based cooking.
