First Class Zind Humbrecht Alsatian Pinot Gris and Riesling

Domaine Zind Humbrecht has long been considered the pinnacle of aromatic whites from Alsace, and this collection of 2021 wines will only add to their much lauded reputation. Pinot Gris in particular was a standout, in large part due to the incredibly strict yields of the vintage, delivering wines that translate their volcanic soil origins with a brilliance rarely seen. Of course their Riesling wines were also hugely successful, marrying generous ripe flavours with perfectly matched high acidity levels.

Modern day Domaine Zind Humbrecht started with the 1959 amalgamation of the Humbrecht family vineyards in Gueberschwihr and the Zind family vineyards in Wintzenheim. However current custodian Olivier Humbrecht MW is the latest generation of Humbrecht winemakers dating back to 1620. Olivier is a legend among modern French winemakers, becoming France’s first Master of Wine at the age of 29, before returning to the family Domaine and beginning a journey to revitalise the vineyards after years of chemical treatment common at the time. Today the Domaine comprises 41.1 hectares of vines spread throughout a range of Grand Cru and single-vineyard sites, all cultivated organically and according to biodynamic principles.
