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. Naturally, Pierre-Paul Humbrecht is using the latest agricultural technologies to ease the task while remaining in harmony with nature, thus our advance towards biological agriculture or rather the search of our origins towards the Earth...

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.

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

A dry white that's well put together, with integrated acidity and a compact structure that mesh nicely. A pleasant orange blossom note accents flavors of quince and honey, while the lingering finish shows a hint of minerality. Drink now through 2020.
