I was a little disappointed in this wine. On the nose, geraniums and exotic spices jump out of the glass. The palate is big and heavy with a bitter edge on the back that in my opinion comes from the alcohol. This wine finishes dry. I can see this wine being a good pair with rich, spicy Louisiana food.

A finely balanced, elegant white, with subtle flavors of white peach and yellow apple that show hints of star fruit, candied lemon zest and fresh earth. There's a vibrancy to this wine that extends through to the white pepper-accented finish. Drink now through 2020.

Zind-Humbrecht’s generic 2009 Pinot Gris this year incorporates all of their fruit from the Herrenweg plus bits and pieces from other sites. In contrast to other recent installments, it finished entirely dry, having in the process accumulated 14% alcohol. Scents of smoked meat and meat pate mingled with fresh mirabelle migrate to a creamy-textured yet — for its grape and vintage — surprisingly brightly juicy palate. This finishes with a faint hint of heat that won’t matter when it is appropriately paired at table over the next couple of years.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Remarkably, the totality of the estate-s crops from Goldert and Heimbourg inform Zind-Humbrecht-s 2009 Gewurztraminer Calcaire. Given how distinctive were the 2007 and 2008 wines from each of these sites, says Olivier Humbrecht, he felt that by comparison it would be better to blend together and in effect declassify their fruit from 2009, and he insists that with the hindsight of harvest 2010 - however small its volume, clearly justifying in his view two separate wines - he is reinforced in the belief that he did the right thing by 2009. Cinnamon, vanilla, coca powder, rose petal, decadent lily, and litchi in the nose announce a correspondingly liquidly floral, confectionary, drippingly rich, and creamy palate, with hints of chalk dust as well as the tactile impingement of spice adding counterpoint in a long, seductively soothing finish that for all of its sweetness manages to avoid seeming saccharine. Presumably it is the Goldert that lends structure and the Heimbourg the enveloping sense of ennobled richness to this ravishing performance...92" WA 05/11
