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
Produced from the well-ripened fruit of young vines which are planted on the volcanic-limestone terroir of Herrenweg, this wine presents a robe of golden straw, as a sure sign of the fruits’ ripeness on the vine. The intense nose reveals sumptuous aromas of cocoa butter, honey and white-fleshed fruits, with a structured, persistant palate. Impossibly complex, its stark minerality makes this a fine accompaniment to delicately flavoured dishes.
