Zind-Humbrecht Brand Grand Cru Riesling 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a big Riesling, offering lots of minerally smoke on the nose and palate, with intensely vivacious, crackling acidity throughout. Flavors of white peach, papaya and star fruit are focused and pure, but ultimately play second fiddle right now to the block of mineral character. The finish is fresh and clean, with a long, spicy note of freshly ground white pepper...94" WS 10/15

The annual cycle of work, parallel with cycle of nature, consists of a number of interventions, comprising biological treatments against the diseases and others aiming at improving the quality. mong the latter, the pruning is particularly decisive. Too severe, it prevents the harmonious development of the vine, insufficient, the vine will overproduce unripen grapes. A this moment, the presence of Paul’s grandson Pierre-Paul Humbrecht, is of utmost importance to the vineyard, to prune correctly and at the right time. Given unfavourable climatic conditions, the harvest may suffer but when the seasons flow normally the right pruning will be rewarded by a juice of very high quality. hen the vine has had its budburst, the disbudding (selection of branches) and desuckering (supression of the growths resulting from sucker from the trunk), are made manually to avoid any harmful effect to the vine. During the bloom, trimming consists in shortening the end of the branches leaving just the right quantity of good quality leafs that the young vine needs. During ripening, the stripping to improve the exposure of the grapes to the sun and thinning out the grapes in excess must be done with precision in order to obtain a harvest of great quality. orking the ground consists of several heavy duty work. Hilling up the vine, ploughing down and plowing between the rows of vine are accomplished each year.

Zippy lime, slightly lighter on the palate - especially after the Calcaire cuvée. Some leafy character, loads of mineral brightness, savoury and dry to finish. (RH) Jancis Robinson. A Riesling wine from Alsace in France. 2009 Zind Humbrecht, Domaine Riesling Brand Grand Cru 750ml

Knockout nose of fresh and dried fruits, honey and white flowers. Delicious fruit salad and citrus skin flavors complicated by spices and honey. Lovely ripe acidity leavens the 22 g/l residual sugar. Very rich and dense, and much easier to taste toda... Stephen Tanzer. A Riesling wine from Alsace in France. 1999 Zind Humbrecht, Domaine Riesling Brand Grand Cru 750ml
