This is very balanced with just a touch of sweetness. Full and flavorful and delicately spicy. Dried pineapple and mangoes. Pretty finish. Some of the gewürz from top vineyards went into this. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now.
This grows at Zind-Humbrecht’s gravelly valley-floor vineyards in Turckheim, where the vines average 45 years old, with some dating to the 1940s and ’50s. It starts off brisk and tight, with bitter melon and grapefruit pith flavors, building intensity with air so it almost grabs you by the lapels and shakes. Boudin blanc will tame some of that intensity, as will a few years of age.
*Good Value* Pale gold. Intensely aromatic with rose petals and lychees – sounds so clichéd but that is what it is like. It is hard to believe the stated alcohol because although this is deeply scented, it is supremely delicate and has the freshness to balance. A little more oily and viscous on the finish but floats like a much lighter wine. (JH)
