Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Calcaire 2006

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This medium gold Pinot Gris is smoky and redolent of dried apricots. The midpalate is delightfully fat and a successful marriage of residual sugar and acidity make it a treat even for lovers of dry Pinot Gris.

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.

A rich Pinot Gris, with a pretty floral note and bright acidity enlivening flavors of dried papaya, apricot, honey, smoke and fleur de sel. This has good length and a lingering finish that echoes a lovely, juicy peach note. Drink now through 2018.

There's a hint of lychee to this white, with more typical flavors of yellow peach, honey and candied citrus peel. A strong vein of exotic spice runs through the wine, as does a laserlike acidity. This is a mouthful, with more layers and nuances at each turn. Should age beautifully. Drink now through 2025.

(14.6% alcohol, 29 g/l r.s. and 3.4 acidity; from young vines in Clos Windsbuhl) Pure, subtle fruit salad aromas lifted by stone. Very sweet and ripe, with good life in the mouth considering its low acidity (this went through ML). A fat style with modest nuance.
