Food Pairings for Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Heimbourg
Not overly sweet for a Riesling. Crisp and fruity.
For someone who loves "all that is Zind"- this orange-imbued 2007 riesling actually carried dominant hints of disappointment. Not that it was bad, at ALL- but that it just wasn't up to snuff to even the Zind Gewurtztraminer, least I felt. Yes, the nose, body and all elements of the wine were lovely- but for any price tag above $20, one's expectations rise as well. Especially regarding a house as profound and renown as Mr. Humbrecht's. And even more especially, the Riesling. Maybe the vintage ('07) was just a rough one. His Pinot Gris, Gewurtztraminers and blends of all above from other vintages have blown me away time and again- but this time Mr. Humbrecht actually scored below his price tag. And this being the only time to do so. I gave this wine an "82" should such numbers matter to you, especially concerning its "Sale" price of still being over $20. If it were $15 a bottle, this would be a 90+. But, it ain't. A mild, 'orangey' disappointment.

A zesty white, with lively acidity accenting the apple blossom, white peach, lemon zest and honey notes. There's a smoky undertow and a pleasant overall juiciness. Drink now through 2013.
This domaine is well-known for its extensive range of single-vineyard wines, but its basic Riesling, launched with the 2003 vintage, offers an affordable introduction to both the winery and the region. Winemaker Olivier Humbrecht's blend comprises about two thirds grapes from the Herrenwed vineyard, primarily the vines with grapes from several of the domaine's other Riesling vineyards, especially from Gueberschwihr.
A well-cut Riesling, offering a salty mineral note and laserlike acidity that defines the quince, yellow peach and floral notes. This packs a lot of flavor into an elegant and light-weight package. Drink now through 2022.
Pale straw-gold. Musky, nuanced nose offers chamomile and spicy high notes along with smoke and earth bass tones. Chewy and tactile, with plenty of CO2 perking up the flavors of pineapple, flint, minerals, nutmeg and earth. In a fairly dry, penetrating style, with underlying acidity currently hidden by the wine's chewy, tactile texture and fruit element. Finishes firm, juicy and persistent. This one grew on me as it showed more clarity with aeration. Powerful and built to age.
