Nice zesty orange and lemon flavors made interesting by honey and mineral notes. A little "lean" for my taste though. Read more

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 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.

Bright medium yellow. Fresh peach, yellow flowers and crushed stone on the expressive nose. Fairly rich but quite brisk, with citrus, stone fruit, spice and wet stone flavors lifted by ginger and quinine toward the back. Just off-dry (6 g/l r.s.), finishing with a lingering flavor of dusty stone. An excellent basic riesling.

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.

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.
