Zind Humbrecht 2015

We are delighted to be the very first merchant to offer the sensational 2015s from Zind Humbrecht. Described as “really spectacular” by the Wine Advocate and hailing from an excellent vintage for the Alsace, these will need to be snapped up before they disappear…

 

Zind Humbrecht is an undisputed leader in Alsace if not the world. The domaine is rated five stars by Robert Parker, who considers winemaker Olivier Humbrecht (Zind’s grandson) to be one of the best alive: “I don't know what is more mind-boggling, the quality of Domaine Zind Humbrecht's wines or Olivier Humbrecht's complete dedication.... This man may well be the finest winemaker in the world." We hosted Olivier in our office last week and were incredibly impressed, as always, by his knowledge and absolute commitment to his vines.

 

2015 was a great year for Alsace, with the Wine Advocate’s Stephen Reinhardt calling it “an outstanding vintage”, which produced “powerful but also elegant” wines. Nowhere was this as true as at Zind Humbrecht, who were able to harness their superb quality vines to maximum potential.

 

On reviewing Humbrecht’s 2015s, Reinhardt was unequivocal in his praise. He called the wines “really spectacular”, and singled out several in his report: “The Gewurtzraminer crus, especially the dramatic Windbuhl, are gorgeous; this can also be said for the Pinot Gris, namely the great Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain (which is lush and sensual but exploding with tension)... Among the Rieslings, collectors should buy the Grand Cru Brand, which is stimulatingly rich but also pure… Last but not least, the Rangen is even finer and more finessed, fascinatingly pure and vital!

 

We have tried the 2015s and could not agree more: these are unbelievably good cuvées that should be on the top of the wish list for anyone serious about their white wine.
