Wine Advocate 92 points - In a departure from typical recent behavior, Zind-Humbrecht?s 2011 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl (last tasted from cask) fermented to a mere four grams of residual sugar. Yet, it reached only a modest 13.4% alcohol. This boasts hazelnut and walnut piquancy, musky inner-mouth perfume, and juicy white peach and lemon on a palpably dense, expansive, yet somehow also buoyant palate. Where the corresponding Clos Hauserer bore at least superficial resemblance to Chablis, here one might detect some kinship with Meursault. In either case, there is an undeniable sense of chalky, stony underpinnings as well as a vibratory finishing intensity with a sense of animation and sheer juiciness rare for the vintage. Plan to follow this through at least 2028. (Aug 2014)

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.
