The Humbrecht family has been winegrowers in Alsace since 1620 but the Domaine came by its current name when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind in 1959. Located in the heart of the Herrenweg vineyard, Leonard significantly expanded the familyís holdings to include an enviable collection of Grand Cru and other high quality vineyards. The Domaine is currently managed by Leonardís son, Olivier Humbrecht, the only Alsacian winemaker to attain M.W. status. A staunch advocate for biodynamic farming, Olivier tailors every aspect of viticulture and winemaking based on terroir. Whether a single vineyard or a blend, place and vintage are clearly and unmistakably expressed in each wine.
|90 Points ~ International Wine Cellar ”Bright, pale yellow-gold.† Captivating aromas of mandarin orange, powdered stone, coconut, mint and floral oils.† Juicy, spicy and brisk, with just a touch of sweetness to the citrus and stony mineral flavors.† Bright acidity gives this wine a light touch and lovely inner-mouth perfume.† Strong impression of fruit extract here.† Quite bracing on the back end, finishing with tactile flavors of pineapple and dusty stone.”
