Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2008
External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc
Full medium gold. Exotic aromas and flavors of musky apricot, orange and medicinal herbs; one senses the wineandrsquo;s firm acidity on the nose. Then spicy, intense and surprisingly dry in the mouth, with a creamy texture leavened by some unabsorbed CO2. This chewy, substantial pinot blanc needs food.
The smell of the sea winds through this full-bodied Pinot Blanc. Pretty peach, apricot, clementine and honeysuckle notes flesh it out, while zesty acidity provides a firm framework. Delicious on its own, but would pair well with seafood. Drink now through 2014.
Firm acidity backs subtle notes of white peach, lemon zest, brine and smoke in this delicate, well-meshed white, with a lacy texture. An excellent summer sipper. Drink now through 2011.
