Olivier Zind-Humbrecht is one of a handful of vignerons who have gained the title of 'Master of Wine', while succeeding in making wines that transcend the traditional boundaries of their genre. It is the culmination of viticultural achievements of his father, Leonard, a man of contagious energy, who took on the task of rediscovering and rehabilitating historic terroirs on unforgiving land. Today, these vineyards form one of the most enviable collections of Grand Crus and historical Lieux-dits in the region. Leonard was one of the first to dramatically reduce yields in the vineyards, with 30-35 Hl/Ha being his norm to achieve greater flavour concentration. In line with his father's pursuit of excellence, Olivier initiated the conversion to biodynamics in the late 1990s and achieved full certification in 2002. Not merely a marketing exercise, the move reflected Olivier's views that the diversity and typicity of Alsatian terroirs would be better emphasised when placed within a balanced ecosystem. Tasting noteā€¦
Bright pale straw colour with apricot tinge and watery hue. The nose displays lifted scents of ripe pear, apple, honeycomb and confectionary. Rich mouthfilling palate flavours of ripe pear, musk, honeycomb and confectionary with some residual sugar present on the medium dry finish. Excellent textural qualities with long ripe pear, musk and light honeycomb aftertaste.
