Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Windsbuhl 2004 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (94)

In the event, his fears were unfounded, as the warmth of September proved to have been sufficient for an outstanding 2004 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl. Mint, honey, caramelized celery root in the nose segue into a palate of creamy richness, considerable delicacy, and only subtle sweetness (from 14.5 grams residual sugar), dominated by alkaline, saline, marine, iodine-inflected mineral elements. This is the most remarkably juicy, refreshing, and indeed delicate of the lot of Humbrecht ’04 Gewurztraminer, and its finish is among the most perfumed, lip-smacking in fruit yet also most thought-provoking in its mysterious mineral and animal aspects of any of Humbrecht’s 2004s. I would not disagree with him when he characterizes its balance as “perfect,” yet there is no doubt this balance could hold for many years if not decades, and I certainly keenly anticipate following its evolution and the additional complexity that is almost sure to come.

Zind Humbrecht Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl 2007 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (88)

Like the Riesling, the apricot-colored 2007 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl is an austere wine on both nose and palate. The bouquet of my sample (which was provided by a German retailer) is still fresh and vital, but reveals some oxidative old-style Rioja flavors along with matured aromas of oranges, lemons, black bread, mushrooms and dried apricots. Quite dry but intense on the palate and provided with a pronounced, not very well integrated acidity, this full-bodied 15% alcohol wine is surely no crowd-pleaser in its austerity, but a complex and interesting Pinot Gris with food. Probably I did not have the best bottle.

Zind Humbrecht Riesling Clos Windsbuhl 2018 (6x75cl)

Vinous (96)

One of the standouts in this range, the 2018 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl is incredibly vivid in the glass. Time in the glass brings out myriad layers of flavor and dimension. Orange confit, crushed rocks, mint and more exotic notes all meld together in an airy, weightless wine that has so much to offer. The 2018 is at once intense but also carries itself with a real sense of grace.
