2004 Riesling Clos Hauserer, Zind Humbrecht

Has a deep hue in the glass for a Riesling, almost burnished gold. The aromas exhibit a strong mineral character, really juicy lime fruit too, but carefully restrained. The palate is remarkably tightly wound; intense in nature with ripe, juicy green lime, and a pronounced wet stone minerality. For a wine so rich in dry extract this reveals a precise, delicate personality, but there is no denying the latent power. Dry, very mineral and hugely impressive this demands patience as it will be able to last a couple of decades or even beyond.

2004 Riesling Clos Hauserer, Zind Humbrecht
Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Olivier Zind-Humbrecht is respected not just for his winemaking but also his stature as France’s very first Master of Wine, as well as being a downright nice guy. With 40 hectares of vineyards farmed biodynamically, he is famous for very low yields, and for producing wine from all four noble grapes. Olivier has pioneered a grading system for his wines, labelling one (dry) to five to indicate their sweetness, amongst other efforts to put Alsace and indeed, Zind-Humbrecht, on the fine wine map.
